Lower Secondary French

The benefits of studying Lower Secondary French

Studying our Lower Secondary French homeschooling course (English National Curriculum Key Stage 3) is an ideal preparation for IGCSE French studies.

Communicating in French will help your child get to know the French people and the French culture. Learning another language, such as French, will open your child’s mind to new ideas and new ways of looking at the world.

We have had a beautiful journey with Wolsey this year and it’s amazing how Chirayu has turned out to be an independent child taking ownership of his studies. I would like to thank each one of his tutors and you for the immense support, incredible guidance and continuous patience. Thank you Wolsey and thank you Sarah and the whole team of tutors that assisted and guided Chirayu!

Studying Secondary Level at Wolsey Hall has enabled me to study at my own pace. If I was interested in a topic, I don’t have to wait; I could speed ahead and reach my full potential.
