School for French speaking

Florence Rossignol


Florence’s favourite subject at school was French, the only subject for which she chose to sit at the front of the class.  Her interest in foreign affairs led her to pursue a career in journalism in Canada and the United States, eventually landing in Oxford. Before setting up the new Alliance française d'Oxford, she founded a school for French-speaking children in Oxford, the Petit Club français d'Oxford. She has a Masters in International Law (LLM) and a BA in Political Science.
