Senior Prep children learn French from Year 1. Cultural awareness is promoted at every opportunity and through a variety of activities, pupils develop the four specific skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing. Lessons are characterised by collaborative work, creativity and extensive use of ICT.
The programme of study as pupils progress through the school ensures an excellent foundation in skills and knowledge in support of children considering French as a GCSE option. In Year 8, more able pupils are prepared for Scholarship examinations.
French Focus mornings involve the whole school with cross curricular activities, sampling French food and delicacies and culminating in an interactive French play.
