French

Our aim is that French should be stimulating, challenging and fun for girls of all abilities, promoting self-esteem. Teaching takes place as much as is practicable in the target language and combines a communicative approach with clear grammatical progression, enabling the learner to communicate confidently and accurately.

French begins in Reception with songs, games, movement, finger rhymes and emphasis on speaking and listening. The girls are taught in half class groups of twelve and have two lessons per week. As they progress through the school, the girls experience a number of special events that accompany their learning, such as the French Breakfast and Form 6 trip to France.
