Pupils are taught by specialist teachers in subject-specific classrooms. Access to ICT Suites enhances and encourages interactive learning. Reading material in French is available, both within the department and in the school library, to promote further, independent study of the language. Pupils have regular timetabled classes with a native speaking Language Assistant, to develop their oral and presentation skills.

Additional Information

In the Sixth Form, pupils attend a Study Day and a Film Day at the Queen’s University of Belfast.

The European Day of Languages is celebrated yearly in school, providing opportunities to promote the study of French.

The French Exchange enables students to share their culture and experience French culture first hand. A new partnership has been established with Lycée L’Oiselet, located between Lyon and Grenoble.
