Key Stage 3

The French course at Key Stage 3 provides students with the necessary skills and knowledge to access the AQA GCSE French course in Key Stage 4. In Year 7 we build up core knowledge of language and grammar and build upon and consolidate this into Year 8. This prepares our students for the demands of the GCSE course in Years 9, 10 and 11.
