Entry evaluation for students

Entry Assessment

Brief description of entry evaluation required

Each pupil is assessed individually; pupils are accepted on the basis that the school is confident that the British Section is the right environment for them to reach their full potential, and that they will contribute to, and benefit from, the ethos and opportunities available.

Deadline for registration (new academic year)

Parents are encouraged to apply within the application deadline dates in January of the year of entry to secure your interest in a place for your child at the British Section.

Students can join after academic year begins

No, British Section is unable to take pupils during the school year. All new students will start at the beginning of the school year in September.

External examinations or assessments available

Pupils in the British Section take three external examinations. The Brevet is taken in 3ème, at the end of the collège cycle. It is the traditional French school leaving certificate and is a loose equivalent to British GCSEs. At the end of 2nde, pupils take IGCSEs, an international version of GCSEs. The final exam at the end of Terminale is the OIB, an international version of the French Baccalaureate. This is a unique qualification because pupils are examined in both French and English.

Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Lycée International - British Section provides a first-class British educational programme for children aged 3 to 18 as part of a genuine bilingual and bicultural curriculum proposed at the internationally renowned Lycée International Saint-Germain-en-Laye and partner schools.

Teaching approach of the school

The British Section offers a mother-tongue English curriculum within the context of the French state school system and hence a primarily francophone educational environment. Pupils of all ages spend about three-quarters of lesson time in a French class learning in French and between 6 - 8 hours per week (depending on the year group) learning in English with British Section teachers.
