French

Do you have an interest in the wider world? Are you fascinated by different cultures and how different people live, act, relax and think across the world? If so, French at HC6 is a great course for you as you explore everything from the literature, film, music and art of the French-speaking world, alongside learning about how French-speaking countries deal with trends in technology, crime, immigration and social problems. This is not just a course about the French language (although it is that too), but an exploration of French-speaking culture. French at A-Level is also widely recognised as a highly challenging course which demonstrates determination, resilience and a wide range of transferable skills such as analytical and research skills. It is therefore valued by universities and employers for both the subject itself and the skills which you develop.
