 THE STUDY PROGRAMME 

 

In Year 10 (3GCSE) students begin a two-year course to GCSE or IGCSE.  At the beginning of Year 11 (2GCSE) most students reduce to a programme of 9 subjects, although a minority continue with 10. French Foreign Language IGCSE is taken at the end of 3GCSE, with the rest of the examinations taken at the end of 2GCSE, which includes French AS Level.

Students are fully prepared for final examinations by their teachers, many of whom are examiners or chief examiners for the various examination boards. Field trips are organised to support the learning in the classroom, especially in Art, History and Geography. Computer programming is taught to all students in Year 10 and is an option in subsequent years. French and P.E. are compulsory in all years.

Advanced level (or A-level) subjects which act as a passport into British universities, are two year linear qualifications, with terminal examinations taken at the end of Y13 (TAL). The majority of students study 4 subjects, which must include French.

The only public examination taken at the end of Y12 (PAL) is IGCSE First Language French, which is aimed at native speakers.
