“Despite the great amount of work to cover, French lessons are extremely engaging and allow us to address not only the language but also to immerse ourselves in topics which cover culture and trends.”     TGGS Student

Normally there are two or three teachers at AS Level who split the course into its natural topic areas.  In addition, there are opportunities for small group-work to improve your speaking skills.

All four skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) are progressed simultaneously through a wide use of target language in class and a broad variety of activities and resources. There is an online text book that you will use but this is heavily supplemented with ‘real’ resources from the internet, television etc.

We offer a wide support package.  This includes: an Immersion Day before the orals when you do a French only day; lunchtime and after-school support sessions and the facility to e-mail work for support.   We also run an exchange that has bolstered many students in the past.

Current Teaching Staff:  
Ms L Neill - Head of French
Mr N Twelves
Mrs P Smedley-Mathé

Examination board and syllabus:    Edexcel Level 3 A Level (9FR0)
