First and foremost, learning French is the pleasure of learning a beautiful, rich, melodious language, often called the language of love. In today’s world, speaking a foreign language is becoming increasingly important and French is the international language of cooking, fashion, theatre, the visual arts, dance and architecture.

From a vocational point of view, French is the other official language of the European Union and so extremely useful in the business world. Our geographical proximity to France means that many companies have businesses in both countries and therefore need staff who can communicate in both languages. An ability to speak French and English is an advantage on the international job market. Knowledge of French opens the doors of French companies in France and other French-speaking parts of the world (Canada, Switzerland, Belgium, and North and sub-Saharan Africa). As the world’s fifth biggest economy and number-three destination for foreign investment, France is a key economic partner
The department uses the Edexcel French GCSE course which is a mixture of both Coursework and Examination.

There is a school trip to France every year. We have recently visited Boulogne and Paris.
