    Good evening


    I was wondering how many pupils are taking French gcse in your schools considering it is an option. We have 89 this year out of 150 and I believe it is quite a high number compared to similar schools ( non selective comprehensive schools). How about your school? I am asking as we are very below national average in a-cs ( 40 percent) but it is also due to the fact that we have a high number of candidates.

    I am a new Hod and trying to justify to coming Ofsted why we are below national average.

    Hard to say if this is the prime reason or not. When everyone did French GCSE for us we had 60-70 % A*-C(200 or so candidates in a poor performing school- then 35% A*-C including E and M, now 45%).Since being optional we have about 90 students and 100% pass rate at C+.
