The class size is limited to allow the teacher and their assistant (where present) to bring quality teaching to each child, and allow time for the child to practice their french in varied ways.

A french library is also available to the pupils to encourage continued learning at home.

All teachers and teaching assistants are francophones and have an enhanced DBS.
