Welcome to Primary School

All pupils, no matter their origin, follow the curricula of the French Education system within the French classroom.

  • Native English speakers pursue their English Language Arts classes within the international section and learn French as beginners in the F.L.E. class. They are in immersion within the French classroom for the remainder of their day.

  • French expatriate children returning to France who are fluent in English and who join the Advanced class continue to make progress in their English language skills and follow the complete French curricula.

  • All non-speakers of French gradually follow classes within the French classroom through the individually tailored F.L.E. programme.
