French A-Level at St Bernard's Catholic Grammar School

Course description

The ever-increasing importance of foreign-language study is now widely recognised and reasonable fluency in a modern foreign language is often very useful in various areas of the business world and in many careers. If you are capable of taking A Level French (good grade B or above at GCSE) you should seriously consider developing your language skills at advanced level, even if you decide to take only AS level. By the time you have reached GCSE, your language skills are sufficiently developed for you to start tackling a much more advanced content and A Level will enable you to study topics such as media (the role and influence of television; advertising; communication technology with its benefits and drawbacks), popular culture (cinema; music; fashion trends), healthy living (importance of exercise; dangers of alcohol, drugs, tobacco; holidays and tourism) and family relationships (including changing attitudes to marriage; roles within the home; conflict within the family etc.)

Entry requirements

General entry requirements to the Sixth Form are a minimum of three Grade Bs and two Grade Cs at GCSE. Students must obtain at least Grade B at GCSE in the subjects to be studied at A/S level.
