What the Sixth Formers have to say:
“The groups are smaller and more relaxed and you get much more attention from the teacher.”
“A Level topics are much more interesting than GCSE.”
“You start to improve really quickly but don’t always realise it. This time last year I was writing a 100-word letter to a pen pal and now I am writing a 650-word essay on drink driving.”
GCSE grade A in French in all four skills. If this subject has not been studied previously, students must have a high level of fluency in the language. This will be subject to teacher assessment.
