Our mission

"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 entire Lycée International Winston Churchill's teaching community is to contribute to the intellectual development and personal fulfilment of each and every student. We develop the intellect and character of our pupils to enable them to take on the challenges of the world.
Capable of thinking for themselves and expressing their opinions with confidence, our students thrive in a bilingual and international environment, underpinned by excellence and a dynamic flow of pedagogical innovation.
Integrity, courage and respect are the core values we encourage them to develop, with the aim, ultimately, that they become true global citizens.

Each student is entitled to the best possible education according to his or her 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 school 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.

It is our firm belief that learning can take multiple forms, and therefore be enhanced by diverse approaches as well as the responsible use of technology. We encourage our teachers to think and teach creatively, to use a variety of methods; from lectures to project-based, hands-on sessions, from books to digital resources and blended learning. We expect them to develop innovative lesson plans in order to help each student discover his or her own learning style, talents and potential. We encourage them to discover and understand the digital world, and make the best use of it.

We believe that honesty is of paramount importance in character building. We encourage students to embrace challenges and welcome hurdles in every part of their life. We ask them to own their mistakes and learn from them.

We encourage teamwork and foster a sense of community and solidarity within and outside the school, from positive collaboration and healthy competition in the classroom to volunteering and community involvement both locally and globally. We look forward to sincere parental support and collaboration, 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, children and adults, to do the same.
