Modern Foreign Languages

Curriculum Area Leader: Mrs A Forrester

At Coppice Performing Arts School, students in Years 7 and 8 are “banded”, with 3 sets in each band, a top set, middle set and a smaller set where support is more easily targeted.

Learning Environment & Resources

The Modern Foreign Languages department is situated in the Communications Zone. There are three teaching rooms and an open learning area equipped with desk top computers. A trolley of 30 laptops is available to use for lessons and private study outside of lesson time.

The Department has developed a wide range of activities for use with the interactive whiteboards available in each teaching room. A range of specialist software titles is available for use in lessons and for revision purposes. Many resources have been produced “in-house” for use exclusively by our students, and we have invested in new course material in line with the new GCSE specification.


All students have 2 French lesson per week. The French scheme of work is supported by a variety of materials including the Allez textbook, MaryGlasgow magazines and online resources.

Year 7 topics include:

  • Language Awareness
  • Personal Information
  • Family and Pets
  • Town
  • House and Town
  • Sports and Hobbies

Year 8 topics include:

  • School
  • Francophonie
  • Food
  • Holiday and Weather
  • Body Parts and Illness

Students in Key Stage 4 may opt to continue studying French up to GCSE Level. Once again, French is studied for two lessons each week. The school currently follows the EDUQAS/WJEC examination course. The scheme of work at Key Stage 4 is based on the Eduqas Course Book and complementary resources.

French AS and A Level are available to Sixth Form students at Wolverhampton College.
