Latest News

Our long awaited new Practical Science Lab is now ready to launch for the new term. This facility will be made available to anybody interested in science, discovery and exploration. Our French, English and Spanish language provisions are continuing to expand into new communes, for all age groups and to the wider business world. 

Distance learning will continue to grow and flourish throughout the year as OSF Online provides quality global education options for 'classroomers' and 'classzoomers', to access real time classes in all subjects, at all levels, wherever the learner may be in the world. For students wishing to pursue university applications this year, we have increased our guidance provision to include not just British universities but the wider network of English speaking degree courses available globally. The Old School continues to embrace positive, supportive partnerships with students, parents, teachers and stakeholders, to effect change.

We take great pride in all of our available resources and facilities as well as providing the best possible education, care and safety for all of our students while we continue to fight the global pandemic. There is definitely a strong sense of optimism and positivity amongst the community as things hopefully begin to pick up as the year goes on.

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.

Dear Parents, Carers and Teachers,

Welcome to The Old School and the new academic year 2021-2022.

This year can start with celebrating success. The latest set of exam results maintain our place as a high achieving academic school. This is the twelfth year in a row that 100% pass rates were achieved at IGCSE’s, GCSE's, IAL's and A Levels.

This news is particularly pleasing given the challenges of Covid 19 restrictions placed on students, teachers and support workers. This is a true testament to the dedication of the students and professionalism of the teaching and support teams. Well done to all involved.

The new academic year represents new beginnings. The learning support department has grown with the addition of two extra specialists. Art and Design, History and the French Departments have also increased in size with new subject teachers joining the team.

The Old School is welcoming back many of its long term students and families but also receiving many new learners. We thank you all for your patience whilst we are currently settling the timetable, which is always a difficult task at the start of the new academic year.

It is anticipated, and we are hopeful that as 2021/2022 progresses, teaching and learning can resume to pre Covid 19 restrictions. However, in the meantime the school will observe all protocol sanitaire procedures in respect to government and local directives.

Despite the recent challenging times, The Old School continues to grow and we all look forward to the new academic year. A thank you and well done to all involved in the school. Let's move forward with passion, creativity and enthusiasm.

Kind regards

Joel and Danièle

Joel Bailey
Director - The Old School

Danièle Birchall
