French Classes

Madame Caroline Carlisle comes in to school on a weekly basis in order to provide French lessons as an extra-curricular learning activity. Using the recognised and highly acclaimed technique from ‘La Jolie Ronde’, she is dedicated to teaching young children the benefits of being able to converse in the French language.

The Course

She aims to make the classes an enjoyable, inspiring experience.

‘La Jolie Ronde’ is a well structured and proven approach which has been operating in schools across the country for over 25 years. Holding a degree in French and having spent several years working in France, she uses the programme to offer the following:

  • Provide fun activities to encourage learning


  • Encourage children to speak with the correct accent


  • Follow a course that is structured, tried and tested
  • Offer expert knowledge of France and the French language
  • Teach learning tools which allow a smooth transition to the secondary sector

You will receive reports on the progress of your child twice a year and children will receive certificates as they complete each stage of the programme. Very young children will learn through songs, rhymes and games. For the older ones there will be more role plays and conversations.


Your child will follow a course which is supported by an activity book and a CD. A small amount of homework is given out each week to support your child’s learning. The classes run for 30 minutes normally during lunchtimes


Fees are paid in advance at the beginning of each term.

The cost of the 10 week course is £50.00. (There is a 10% sibling discount)

There is an initial cost for the activity book and CD, the cost of which depends on the programme your child is starting, (£18:00 or £22.00)
