We have worked closely with teachers to ensure our GCSE French specification will stimulate and motivate your students.

We’ve included a range of topics to cater for your needs. There are topics that will be familiar, as well as new ones that will inspire students who are interested in the culture of France and French-speaking communities and countries.

We’re also creating a great range of free resources to help you plan, teach and assess the new specification.
