French is the second most frequently taught language in the world, after English. It is spoken on 5 continents and is an official working language of countless non-governmental organisations including NATO, UNESCO and the International Red Cross.
With this in mind, our French language courses strive to meet the needs of our students who have diverse language experiences and aspirations.
We offer an “Advanced French Language” programme which is in direct response to a market need of French speaking families who are increasingly seeking an international education in English for their children whilst maintaining their studies of French language and literacy. We offer the French Advanced Language course from Early Years to IGCSE (15 years old). The course follows the objectives of the French curriculum (CNED), with specific emphasis on reading, writing and grammar. Our teachers support each student’s progress by providing opportunities to obtain early qualifications in ICGSE Second Language.
In our secondary school, the content of the course is consistent with the IGCSE curriculum. As an IB school, students can choose between three levels of French for their DP programme: Ab Initio (beginners) Standard Level (intermediate) and Higher Level (Advanced) courses.
Additionally, we work closely with the Alliance Francaise who tailor in-house courses for our students and which link with DELF and DALF assessment frameworks.
We are excited to launch French language exchange activities within our Nord Anglia Group this year with a visit to our Nord Anglia school in Switzerland!
