The accompanying subtitles had pupils desperately trying to work out which French word meant what, in a story where young boys were frequently discussing their developing sexual knowledge.

Teachers around the cinema were seen squirming uncomfortably, while their very 21st century charges presented a much more sophisticated, er, front.

No doubt this stimulating experience will be richly repaid when they have to sit their next exam.
