At Donhead Prep the boys learn French.

French language can offer numerous future opportunities as among others:

it is the only language with presence in all 5 continents.

It is also the working language of UN and EU.

two of the world's leading cities in aerospace technology are French-speaking.

Boys are taught once a week and they benefit from an immersive theatre performances, our annual French Day and the Elements (Y6) 'swan song'; our 5 days residential trip to France.

After leaving Donhead many of our students achieve high results in their senior schools and are ranked at the top sets for French.

Nelson Mandela once said that If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.
