French

With more than 200 million French speakers across all the five continents, learning French broadens students’ horizons and is a gateway to travel and career opportunities. The language of Molière, Sartre, Monet, Truffaut and Piaf continues to play a hugely influential role in today’s society.

We teach in an engaging, inspiring way, helping girls develop confidence and enjoyment. French lessons are both challenging and fun. Grammar is taught rigorously, and students learn to recognise cognates and patterns, thereby developing their analytical and critical thinking skills. The four skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing are given equal weighting, and students are able to manipulate the language for themselves.

In the Sixth Form, students develop their spontaneous speaking skills whilst simultaneously enriching their cultural knowledge. From studying French music to debating the effects of immigration on France, our course prepares girls thoroughly for higher education and beyond.
