AS / A Level French at All Saints Catholic High School
The course is built around the following core content; social issues and trends, political and artistic culture and grammar. Students will also have the choice of studying French literary texts and films.
Students build upon the skills that they have acquired at GCSE level, and learn and understand how to express themselves more fluently in French. French and the French speaking world are studied in depth and students will gain an appreciation of the culture, geography and history behind the language.
Immersion into the language is vital and therefore we encourage students to watch French films, listen to French music, participate in lively debate and do their own individual research. Our students also have the opportunity to take part in French Topic Days and to cook and sample French cuisine!

“… I’m really glad I chose French. It seemed hard at first, but it did get easier and the trip to France was brilliant! I’m hoping to get a job where I can travel and use my language skills.”
