Two languages, alternatively

Instruction is in English 50% of the time from Year 1  to Year 6. Each class year meets daily with one French-speaking and one English-speaking teacher, with speciality teachers in subjects such as PE, language, and music. Our school has developed a unique, shared pedagogy that encompasses statutory elements of both the French and English curriculums. Pupils benefit from an education in French and in English, thanks to two teachers who work in close partnership. The bilingual curriculum is enhanced by creating links between topics and by dividing subjects between two teachers with common themes. This is further enhanced by different teaching methods and practices from all over the world, which address critical thinking, collaboration, and risk-taking. We also benefit from specialist teachers with a background in EAL and FLE (English as an additional language and French as an additional language) to support beginners in either. The French curriculum is divided between two class teachers from Year 1/GSM to Year 6/CM2. Each class year meets daily with one French-speaking for half of the day and one English-speaking teacher for the other half day. Specialty teachers in subjects such as PE, language, and music provide weekly lessons. 

In the Primary school, classes start at 8:45 am sharp every day. The school gates open at 8:15 am for an early drop-off with supervised time.
The school day ends at 3:15 pm from Monday through Thursday and at 3 pm on Friday.
We encourage families to observe these times, thus ensuring a good and stress-free start to the day for all.

After-school activities are organised every day until 5 pm for an additional fee. Onsite after school care until 6 pm is also available for a fee.
