French Bilingual Provision

"Our daughter has been in the French bilingual section throughout her education and this is something we would greatly like to continue".

The French Bilingual programme is aimed at students with pre-existing French linguistic skills, French mother tongue or French as an additional language. The curriculum is designed to enable students to further develop their bilingualism. The programme includes tailor made French lessons which match the needs of each student according to individual strengths in specific skills. In addition, students learn humanities through the medium of French. This enables them to further develop their linguistic skills whilst acquiring knowledge in History and Geography. Daily Tutor Time is also delivered in French to maximise the exposure and consolidate skills.

A number of qualifications including DELF (French proficiency examinations following the European framework for languages) and GCSE are available. Exam entries are matched to individual students.

In addition to the extension programme, a number of extra-curricular activities are offered to students on the Bilingual Programme: Days at the Institut Français, French theme days at school, a French film club, trips and visits.

Le Programme Bilingue français est destiné aux élèves ayant déjà des compétences en français, langue maternelle ou langue seconde. Le programme d’enseignement, conçu de manière à permettre aux élèves de développer leur bilinguisme, inclut l’enseignement du français sur objectifs spécifiques déterminés par les compétences individuelles. De plus, les élèves suivent les cours d’ histoire et de géographie en langue française. Cela leur permet de continuer à développer  leurs compétences linguistiques tout en acquérant des connaissances dans d’autres matières. Le tutorat journalier se passe également en langue française.

Il existe plusieurs diplômes auxquels les élêves peuvent être préparés: DELF (niveau A1, A2, B1 et B2)  et GCSE. Les élèves présentent les examens qui leur correspondent le mieux.  

En plus du programme péri-scolaire, des activités sont proposées aux élèves du Programme Bilingue: journées à l’Institut Français, journées françaises au collège, un ciné-club, des voyages et des visites.

We also welcome applications from students who do not currently speak French but can show linguistic aptitude alongside enthusiasm and commitment to being part of this demanding programme.
