Modern Foreign Languages


Queenswood is an extraordinary place with extraordinary people. It would be our privilege to educate your daughters here.


French is an optional language in the Lower School, and many choose to continue the subject as an option at GCSE and A-Level.

The aims of the course are to develop the ability to use French effectively for purposes of practical communication and to form a sound base for the skills, language and attitudes required for further study, work and leisure.

Lessons are conducted substantially in the target language. The teaching is based on a communicative approach and gives equal importance to listening, reading, speaking and writing. These activities are underpinned by the need to acquire a firm grasp of grammar and a wide vocabulary.

There are a variety of co-curricular French clubs at Queenswood, and regular opportunities for study visits to France.
