Being or becoming bilingual opens the door to becoming plurilingual. The curriculum enables the gradual acquisition of up to four foreign languages.

National and International Curricula

International and french national pupils share a joint curriculum where the education provided takes account of the pupils’ age, needs and prospects. Through our system each pupil can prepare for what the renowned international curriculum has to offer and, depending on his age, experience the French educational system.
A bilingual version of the French National Curriculum is taught from nursery level onwards, with French and English language teaching adapted to pupils’ needs (beginner to native speaker). From G9/Y10 onwards, pupils begin preparing for international diplomas (Cambridge IGCSE and International Baccalaureate Diploma). National graduation is also available (French Brevet, French General Baccalaureate).


An all-rounded educational experience

Sports, cultural activities and an in-depth discovery of other languages and cultures are all part and parcel of the educational package on offer.

As well as the usual variety of educational activities there are many different clubs available for pupils to join (on the Ombrosa Campus in Caluire). Pupils can practise their favourite hobbies with their friends: gymnastics, athletics, judo, football, rugby, visual arts, choir, musical comedy, LAMDA, technology, chess, bridge, MUN, journalism etc.
