I came from Gillotts school and studied Biology, Psychology and French.
I chose to come to The Henley College as I wanted to get a taste of independence of learning in preparation for university.It was the passion and enthusiasm of the teachers which impressed me most. In particular the French teacher inspired me to have the confidence to choose the subject despite my doubts.
French A-level at The Henley College, is brilliant as it offers you endless opportunities in life from working and living abroad to meeting new people from different cultures. Learning French at A-level has given me the confidence to read, write, listen and speak the language.
