We all had a wonderful time in Eymet at the Panto, Cinderella, which was superbly created by all the members of Théâtre Musical d'Eymet PANTO EYMET, and brilliantly directed by Carol Ann Openshaw.

Our school and our Director Joel Bailey had the privilege to be invited to be involved with the set design, painting scenery and building carriages! It was a pleasure for everyone to see the whole project come to life and be enjoyed by a total audience of over 750 people from Thursday to Saturday.

We have been approached by many parents who attended the panto, who saw the quality of the art work, who would like their children to enhance their creative skills outside of their regular education setting.

We run monthly Art & Design workshops on Saturdays, from September to June. Students can join at any time. Adults welcome too.

Here's a link 

GCSE Art & Design
Our students are following the exam criteria as set by Pearson Edexcel.

GCSE Art & Design (9-1) is a 100% taught course (unit 1) with an externally set assignment in yr 2 (Unit 2).   

GCSE and A level Music courses for young people (12+) and adults

One weekend each month, students come to the school to complete their Music coursework and take guidance and teaching, in order to prepare for the GCSE or A level Music examinations.   

Art & Design Saturday Workshops

Attend the French education system, but feel your children could excel in the Arts?

Fitting this around the weekly schedule of any Collégien or Lycéen is difficult, which is why, for the past two years, we have run our monthly Art & Design workshops on a Saturday, achieving amazing results.

The course starts on 17th September, however, students can start mid term, throughout the school year.

Theatre School Autumn Term

A challenging and fun term of intensive workshops in music, drama and dance, culminating in an end of term performance.

Welcome to 2023!

Each new year brings new beginnings; a fresh start and an opportunity to reflect, review and evaluate.

The Old School is looking forward to the new year ahead. I am pleased with the success experienced by all involved in the school community throughout 2022. Foundations to build on!

It is a pleasure to experience the sense of growth that is being generated within our school, not just from an academic perspective, but also in terms of students’ personal and social engagement with each other. Throughout 2022 The Old School increased its community and it is particularly gratifying to receive support from the wider French fraternity.

As with every year at this time, young people are beginning to engage in the final stages of courses, with the aim to undertake public examinations. I wish them every success with their revision programmes and their final outcomes. Many of the sixth form cohort have expressed an interest in undertaking further study at university and this is always very satisfying to witness, we are in the process of supporting their applications, providing headteacher references and guiding them on to the next stage of their educational journey. The lower school has formed into a coherent study and learning group who are beginning to develop the necessary academic dexterity to thrive and achieve excellence.

I am sure 2023 will bring triumphs, challenges and opportunities that the school community will embrace.

Happy New Year!
