Presentations and events throughout the year

The Careers Team offers a range of presentations and events to our students and parents all through the academic year, including: 

Leap courses for high-achieving students

Starting in  the second term of Year 11/Seconde, high-achieving students intending to apply for the most competitive courses and universities have the opportunity to join the Lycee’s Leap Programme. This will prepare them thoroughly for entrance exams or interviews they may have in Year 13/Terminale.

Beginning in the autumn term of Year 12/Première, students can specialise in one or two subjects, with up to two hours per week of extra lessons. We do not charge additional fees for these classes. Leap courses are offered in all mainstream subjects, such as politics, history, economics, mathematics, physics, biology, and chemistry, but should a student express an interest in a specialised topic, we can also support their interest; for instance, we ran a course in anthropology in the recent past. The Leap Programme runs until the Toussaint holiday of Year 13/Terminale (November 1), around which time most entrance exams take place.
