Key Stage Three: Years 7 – 8
All year 7 and 8 students have two lessons of French per week. We follow the ALLEZ! Course provided by OUP.
We aim to offer a summer day-trip to northern France each year for year seven- Lille or St Omer, and an opportunity in year 8 to visit the Christmas markets of either Lille or Arras.
Key Stage Four: Years 9 - 11
We begin working towards GCSE French in year 9. Students who continue with their language studies into year 10 and 11 work towards AQA GCSE French. The course is examined at the end of year 11 in four separate examinations: speaking, listening, reading and writing. Students of French have three timetabled lessons per week.
The highlight of the course is our residential and over-subscribed year 10 trip to Paris in July, where students take in the sights and sounds of the best the French capital has to offer.
Key Stage Five: Years 12-13
Our post-16 linguists study towards the AQA A-level qualification, which allows students flexibility and the freedom to choose the content of some of their course. The course is demanding and requires a substantial commitment to independent study but students will enjoy examining both classic and contemporary French film and literature.
