KS4 Topic Skills

Pupils who choose French at GCSE level quickly improve their basic skills. The classes are fairly small and therefore provide opportunities for depth in writting and reading tasks. Oral work is quickly developed so pupils can express opinions and use wider vocabulary. Listening skills are improved through dialogue film and radio recording.


KS5 Topic Skills

We encourage pupils to develop wider understanding of use of French through contemporary issues which affect young people. We aim to achieve high levels of attainment and fluency.

Our team of 3 staff enable pupils:

» To become aware of other cultures-to compare, to understand and to enhance our own language skills.
