Hello, welcome to the Year 8 French page.

This page will give you some information about things that you will study during your first year in St Paul’s.  Whether or not you have studied this subject at primary school, we’re sure you will find the information below helpful.

In Year 8, each student has two periods of French a week. The topics covered at Key Stage 3 level include the following:


  • Myself and my family
  • House and home
  • My school
  • Colours
  • Pets
  • Weather
  • Days and months
  • Numbers

As the students progress through the three years the topics are covered in more detail as well as studying grammar in more detail.

Every two years there is a cultural French trip, which give students the chance to hear the native language of the country. Every year the department avails of a French assistant, which allows pupils access to an authentic native speaker.


See below for a selection of photos from the most recent trip to France.
