Dear Students, Families, and Carers

We do hope you have had a fantastic Summer, didn't it go quickly?

As we embark on a new academic year, I am thrilled to extend my warmest greetings to all our new and returning students, families, and carers. Your presence enriches our school community, and we are truly honored to have you with us.

Reflecting upon the past year, I am delighted to celebrate the remarkable achievements of our students in their A-Level and GCSE examinations. Despite the challenges posed by external factors, I am proud to announce that our school maintained its tradition of excellence, with outstanding results that reflect the unwavering dedication of both our students and educators.

It is with immense pride that I share that one of our exceptional students achieved the remarkable feat of securing 2 A* results in their A-Level examinations. This accomplishment is a testament to their diligence, commitment, and the exceptional guidance provided by our teaching staff. It is this synergy between students and educators that allows us to achieve such incredible heights.

Furthermore, I am overjoyed to inform you that every single one of our students has been accepted into their university of choice. This is a testament to their hard work and the comprehensive preparation they received during their time at our school. It fills our hearts with pride to witness our students moving forward with confidence into the next phase of their academic journey.

I would also like to acknowledge the support and resilience demonstrated by our students and families throughout the challenges of the past year. Your dedication to education and learning has been truly inspiring, and it is your commitment that forms the backbone of our thriving school community.

As we embark on this new academic year, I am filled with anticipation for the opportunities that lie ahead. Our school is a place where innovation, creativity, and academic excellence come together to create a vibrant learning environment. I have every confidence that, with the continued dedication of our students, the expertise of our educators, and the support of our families and carers, we will achieve even greater success in the upcoming year.

Let us step into this academic year with open hearts and minds, ready to embrace new challenges, celebrate achievements, and grow as individuals and as a community. Together, we will create an atmosphere where learning is not just a task, but a fulfilling and transformative experience.

May this academic year be one of growth, inspiration, and accomplishments.

With warm regards

Joel and Danièle

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.

NEW Student Books are now available to download >>>
