FAQs

No, we are not. 

We do welcome students coming on their own in London, but they have to be 16 years old or more, and must live within an official Hosting family. The choice of the hosting family is under full responsibility of the parents. The school can only provide you with a list of agencies that can help you find a suitable hosting family. 

There is no admissions exam or test. However, to enter the Lycée in Première (Year 12) or Terminale (Year 13), we ask for the school reports before sending an offer. In addition, we occasionally require a prospective student to complete a French test to assess the strength of his or her linguistic skills, for example when the student wishes to join the French Bilingual Track.

To receive Financial help:

FRENCH CONSULATE > for French citizens only.

FSF > helping the families registering at Lycée International or CFBL, (French or not)


 

Absolutely not. Students from English-speaking families are very welcome in our school, as we have two tracks: 

  • the French Bilingual Programme (taught 70% in French and 30% in English and a third language)

  • the English International Programme / IBDP (taught 70% in English and 30% in French and a third language for students having a strong French level. Otherwise, we suggest students to strengthen their French before adding a third language).

 

However, the Primary school is indeed bilingual (50/50) so for students who do not speak any french applying for Year 5/CM1 or Year 6 / CM2, we will not be able to welcome them.
 

Pre-registration fees: You will have to create an online pre-registration file and include proof of your £100 payment by bank transfer. Without the payment proof attached to the file, we won’t be able to consider your application.

Registration fees: Once your online pre-registration form and £100 payment have been received, we will email you the Offer of Place for your child. You will then have 8 days to accept the place by completing the online registration file, uploading all the required documentation and paying a total of £2,250 (£1,250 registration fee and £1,000 advance payment deducted from the first term).

 

School fees 2020-2021:

Early year programme (Petite et Moyenne section) = £15,400 (special discounted rate for students joining in 2020-21 = £13,363)

 Postpone > we can freeze the £1,250 first registration fee you paid for one or two years (although the £1,000 advance payment is non-refundable). This means you would secure a seat for your child for the following year and you would only have to pay the £1,000 advance for the first term. But you would still have to restart the registration process again online as some of the information provided can change.  Cancellation > as per our T&C’s, the £2,250 is non-refundable.

For the academic year 2020-21: 

The 2020-21 registrations are open from October 2019. We still have few spaces left, so you can start the registration process now on our website.
