Our Curriculum

A Bilingual Approach

Our teachers deliver a curriculum which offers an excellent level of academic achievement while continuing to foster a child’s creative, emotional and physical needs.

Our students follow a rich bilingual program with 4 days of instruction in English based on the English national curriculum and two half-days of French instruction, either following the French national education curriculum for our native French pupils, or a French as a Foreign Language class for French language learners.

Students in Year 6 have an additional half-day of French classes per week during which time they study Mathematics and History in French.

Classes take place Monday to Friday, from 9am to 4pm.
