No not because it was because the English had new and approved weapons such as the long bow which was faster to load while the french had longbows which could take a 100 years to load( being sarcastic here)
There are a few reasons.Firstly, they had longbows which could fire up to eighteen arrows a minute.The French had crossbows which could only fir at around 5 arrows a minute.The English had a height advantage as well, which reduced the impact of the french cavalry charge, which made easy prey for the longbowmen.

The long bow was first introduced at Crecy and helped the British defeat the French.
The Battle of Crecy was one of the battles in the Hundred Years War. Edward III of England moved into enemy territory in his ongoing war with King Philip VI of France. While initially the English army was pursued by the French Army, once they engaged in battle, the English delivered a devastating loss to the French.
King Edward III led the English. They defeated the French under King Philip of Valois.
The Longbow demonstrated that infantry could defeat mounted armored knights: Battles of Crecy, Poiters, Agincourt. The longbowman was much cheaper to equip and train than a knight and allowed the English to field more effective military power for less expense

Carrot soup is sometimes called as Puree crecy... it symbolizes "Battle of Crecy"
no Ignore above It proved to Europe that armoured knights were not invincible. Up until this point armoured knights on horseback were seen to be the best soldiers in an army and undefeatable by infantry. English victories such as Crecy and Poitiers proved that common men (archers) could defeat mounted knights with the correct planning. However, as it saw the rise of the English archer it also saw the demise as the French learnt how to defeat the weapon by charging quickly and by not engaging in open warfare. The Hundred Years War also involved many different directions for warfare. It involved sieges, open battle and chevauee (double check) where the English pillaged the French lands of Brittany.
A longbow is a type of bow made from a single natural piece of wood that is roughly equal to the height of a person who uses it. The English used massed longbows to great effect during the Hundred Years' War, against the French, particularly at the start of the war in the battles of Crecy (1346) and Poitiers (1356), and most famously at the Battle of Agincourt (1415). An archers trained in using the longbow is called a longbowman.
Saint-Lô, Verdun, Crecy, and Arras all were the site of a major battle in varried wars.
My cookbook, Twelve Months of Monastery Soups (auth is Brother Victor-Antoine d'Avila-Latourrette) says: " In France, the carrots grown in the vicinity of Crecy have the reputation as best and the tastiest in the whole country -- hence the name given to the soup. From France, the soup crossed the Channel into England, where it has become part of the national folklore. According to an old tradition dating back the the 14th century, loyal Britons should eat carrot soup or "potage de Crecy" on the anniversary (August 26, 1346) of the battle of Crecy, a legendary victory of the English over the French in the the Hundred Years' War.

The traditional 'correct' answer to why the English defeated the French there is "the devastating effect of the use of longbows by the English". It's probably the answer that your teacher will expect. Later research and tests however have shown that a longbow arrow could only pierce body armour at a distance of about 20 meters (60 feet) or less. Longbow archers moreover were in the habit of firing their arrows at maximum range, so their impact was probably very limited anyway. The same tests showed that crossbows were much more effective than longbows at close range. At Crécy, the real deciding factors were poor and hesitant generalship by the French King (his Marshal, a much more solid general, had been taken prisoner by the English a few days before the battle) who started the battle much too late in the day when a downpoor turned the soil to mud, making the French cavalry ineffective and sitting ducks for the English. The French moreover attacked without any order, which robbed them of the advantage of their superior numbers against a well-entrenched and much better organized enemy.
