It appears you are not aware of the Schengen Accord. You are limited to 90 days in any 180 calendar days, in all of the Schengen member countries combined.
What that means is you cannot spend 9 or even 6 months in France, Germany, Italy and Spain as they are all members of Schengen.
What you could do since the UK is NOT a member, is spend 3 months in France followed by 3 months in the UK and then return to the continent and spend 3 months in Germany, Italy and Spain.
To spend more than 90 days at one time OR more than 90 days in any 180 calendar days,, you would need to get a visa. First, that isn't that easy and second, to do it just to add 3 months overall doesn't seem very practical to me.
So unless you have left something out like having dual nationality, your choices are to limit your time to 9 months or go through the process of getting a visa of some kind.
One other alternative would be to do the 9 months with the UK in the middle and then return to your home country for 3 months before going back to Europe for another 3 months.
