French is offered at GCSE for students starting the course in 2017.
The aim of the GCSE course is to offer students a wide range of experiences and skills. It also encourages students to develop language skills in a variety of contexts but also builds on the KS3 study and to prepare students for further study, for instance GCSE to A level .
Students have 5 hours of French per fortnight.
We follow the AQA Examination Syllabus at GCSE.
Some students have bought revision and workbook guides through the French department: these guides are invaluable in preparation of the speaking and writing elements of the course and they also provide listening practice. Indeed the sound files for the exercises can be accessed via the publisher’s website mentioned in the workbook guide.
Task magic is available for KS4 students (see French home page for details).
The Lesson Resources drive at school provides supplementary material for students.
