Lower Secondary Curriculum

Lycée International de Londres follows the French national curriculum from Year 1 (Grande Section de Maternelle) to Year 13 (Baccalauréat), offered in a bilingual setting with the goal that our students will master both languages and cultures with equal fluency and ease.

From Years 7 to 10, our students will continue to train their minds to think in two languages from literature to science, and from maths to arts, acquiring a fluency not only in the use of the languages but also in the understanding of different approaches to problem solving, and the influence of different cultures on the way we think. We initiate the formal study of a third modern language in Year 7. Students will choose one of three or four languages, depending on enrollment.

Our staff teach in their own native language, bringing along the specific educational culture of their country as part of the learning experience for our students.


In addition to the traditional curriculum, Opening Minds classes are intended to further students’ curiosity and joy of learning, and are offered twice a week in either language. They usually take place at the end of each day, from 3pm-4pm.

After 4pm, a programme of extra-curricular sporting and cultural activities will be offered until 5.30pm, for an additional fee. Watch our Opening Minds classes video below and see our after-school programme here .
