French KS3 (Y7-Y9)        Outline of the course 

At KS3 our students follow a two-part course with the textbook Allez which emphasis on independent learning, progression and above all on ‘real’ language, in line with the new curriculum, giving students the best chance to think creatively and express ideas using authentic language. 

Throughout the three year course, students cover a variety of topics such as: personal information, school, home and animals, food, describing local areas, holidays, sport and leisure, entertainment, technology, teenage issues, balanced diet, job and ambitions and more.

Activities are differentiated in 3 levels, encouraging every student to progress, practice grammar concepts and develop their skills in more depth, motivating students to achieve their full potential.


Throughout the three year course students will conduct a good mixture of assessment and learning, along with the right balance of grammatical, functional and situational material which will prepare them effectively for their exams whilst supporting them as they develop as linguists

KS4 GCSE French Overview

This qualification is linear. Linear means that students will sit all their exams at the end of the course.

The objective of this course is to enable students of all abilities to develop their French language skills to their full potential, equipping them with the knowledge to communicate in a variety of contexts with confidence.

The specification covers three distinct themes. These themes apply to all four different skills; Listening, Speaking, Reading and writing.

Students are expected to understand and provide information and opinions about these themes relating to their own experiences and those of other people, including people in countries/communities where French is spoken.

Students study all of the following themes on which the assessments are based.

Theme 1: Identity and culture

Theme 2: Local, national, international and global areas of interest

Theme 3: Current and future study and employment

The content and skills of the new specifications build on what is studied at Key Stage 2/3, and provide better progression onto AS/A-level or into employment.
