Subject overview

Studying French in Higher Line can open up a wide range of future professional, career or life opportunities. The significance of language skills to our economy and public life is consistently upheld by the Russell Group of Universities and the CBI, among other prestigious universities worldwide. 

By the end of a language course, pupils will have increased confidence in their ability to understand and express themselves fluently when conversing or writing about a wide range of topics.

We offer small classes and a highly personalised language learning experience. Our team of language teachers comprises highly experienced linguists who are also examiners, native speakers who teach the literature and culture of their native countries and who offer conversation classes in small groups or on a 1-1 basis in order to provide the best opportunities for our pupils to excel in French.

Stonyhurst offers a variety of stimulating course enrichment activities such as film clubs, study visits, exchange partners and 1-1 preparation for prestigious university entrance.
Our aim is to help pupils to develop and share their individual gifts and talents, to learn from others and to reach their full potential in French and more broadly, preparing them for a global career.
