For entry to our Section Française Programme, we welcome applications from students aged 10+, 11+ and 13+, with a high level of French, or who are of native-speaking standard. Boys will essentially follow the Whitgift curriculum in all subjects apart from French, where they will follow the curriculum as outlined by the French Ministry of Education. In these French lessons they will be taught by native speakers and will be offered the required mix of language, grammar, literature and cultural studies.
In addition to entrance tests in English, Mathematics and Verbal Reasoning (10+ and 11+ candidates), and English, Mathematics and Science (13+ candidates), Section Française applicants will sit an additional test in French which will determine whether they are suitable to join the Section Française Programme which formally commences in Year 7 (11+).
