Curriculum Intent

 The French department seeks to develop ambitious and resilient linguists who recognise their common humanity and strive to gain inter-cultural understanding and respect. We aim to provide an understanding of French through a range of themes such as: The Changing Nature of Society over the last fifty years in France, Immigration, the Second World War and Music, Culture, Media and Festivals which enables students to communicate effectively in authentic situations on their exchange visits and be prepared for the challenges of developing the language at a higher level in KS4 and the Sixth Form. We intend to develop students who are curious about Francophone cultures, knowledgeable and understanding, open-minded and courageous as they personally develop through their learning of
French.
