Modern Foreign Languages

Pupils study French at KS3, which not only offers them insight into the French language and culture, but greatly supports their English language learning. Pupils follow a topic-based curriculum which focuses on French phonics and basic grammar. As they progress from single words, to short set phrases; from extended sentences to succinct paragraphs, the nature of their studies allows pupils to make constant comparisons with their own language and deepen their understanding of how English works. We endeavor to make French lessons engaging and fun, as ultimately our aim is to boost pupils’ confidence in their communication skills.
