At Grange Park, we aim to teach French to all pupils in KS3. We hope that the experience we provide will:

  • foster an interest in all language-learning.

  • introduce pupils to another language in a way that is enjoyable.

  • make pupils aware that language has structure and that the structure differs from one language to another.

  • help pupils develop their awareness of cultural differences in other countries.

  • develop their speaking and listening skills.
