“Through a rigorous, bilingual programme and innovative methods, we educate pupils to become responsible, creative, and principled global citizens. We teach them to think critically and act ethically, to form and express their own opinions and respect those of others, to define their own life goals, and to make sense of and embrace change.”
Modern learning, timeless values
The primary objective of the Lycée International Winston Churchill’s entire teaching community is to contribute to the intellectual development and personal fulfilment of each and every student. We develop the mind and character of our pupils to help them take on the challenges of the world.
Capable of thinking for themselves and expressing their opinions with confidence, our students thrive in an international and bilingual environment underpinned by academic rigour and continuous pedagogical innovation. We encourage them to develop the core values of integrity, courage, and respect, with the ultimate aim that they become truly global citizens.
Each student is entitled to the best possible education according to his or her skills and needs, with the goal of achieving excellence in both intellectual and social endeavours. We believe that learning should be a fulfilling experience, and that school should be a place fostering joy, creative thinking, and openness. Our teaching encourages individual and collective initiatives. We want our children to think positively about themselves and to recognise and value their own talents and those of others.
We believe firmly that learning takes multiple forms, and is thus enhanced by diverse pedagogical approaches and balanced use of technology. We encourage our educators to think and teach creatively and to use a variety of methods — from lectures to hands-on, project-based sessions, and from classic books to digital resources. We expect them to develop innovative lesson plans to help each pupil discover his or her own learning style, talents and potential. We encourage students to discover and understand the digital world and make the best use of it.
Honesty is of paramount importance in building character. We encourage students to embrace challenges and welcome hurdles in every part of their lives while being truthful, realistic, and fair. We ask them to own their mistakes and learn from them.
We encourage teamwork and foster a sense of community and solidarity inside and outside the school, from positive collaboration and healthy competition in the classroom to volunteering and community involvement, both locally and globally. We expect committed parental involvement and support, which in turn we offer to families.
We welcome students, families, and employees from all backgrounds and cultures. We respect and celebrate their identity, lifestyles, preferences, and individual differences. We expect every member of our community, both children and adults, to do the same.
