French will be offered as an option to all students at Key Stage four.  The course will cover the four Attainment Targets of Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing; these will be examined during or towards the end of Year 11.  The themes and topics covered will be under the following titles:

  • Lifestyle

Beyond the practical use of language, students learn the importance of tolerance, and through the study of cultural differences they learn to develop positive attitudes towards, and a genuine concern for, others in society.

Language graduates score high on employability compared to graduates of other disciplines and studying languages alongside another degree subject can also enhance job prospects.  Language graduates have lower unemployment rates than a number of other subject areas Businesses need people with language skills.  45% of international businesses experience language and cultural issues as barriers to international business.  30% of British companies have over 20% of their customer base outside the UK and over 70% conduct some business in other countries.
