PAIN au chocolat, croissants and a whole host of continental treats are up for grabs at Bispham High School this week.

But students wanting to get their hands on the mouthwatering pastries need to brush up on their language skills first, as this cafe is strictly French speaking.

The stall appears at the Bispham Road school every summer in a bid to encourage students to grow in confidence with their French.

And it works a treat according to John Topping, deputy headteacher.

He said: “There is no better incentive for the students to practise their language skills than putting it in a food setting.

“The cafe is really popular and gives them a useful, lifelike situation to practise their French.

“We are always on the lookout for ways to bring their learning to life.”
