The British Section, Lycée International Saint Germain-en-Laye

The Lycée International (25km west of Paris) educates children from age 3 to 18. With over 800 pupils on roll, the British Section is the largest of the 13 national sections. Pupils are taught by British Section teachers for six hours per week, increasing to eight hours per week for their final three school years; they spend the balance of their school week with French teachers who teach the French national curriculum. Children who speak little or no French can join the British Section via one of the Français spécial classes and benefit from an intensive course in French.

The British Section’s strong academic programme leads to IGCSE examinations at age 16, followed by a two-year preparation for the International Option of the French Baccalaureate (OIB) run jointly by the French government and University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) since its introduction in 1985.

The Lycée International gives students the skills, motivation and work habits which are an excellent preparation for university and the increasingly globalised professional world which follows. The results, and the track record of so many former students, justify the Lycée‘s reputation as one of France’s most successful schools.

Students sit both the iGCSEs and international version of the French Brevet at age 16 and then the OIB (Option Internationale du Baccalaureate) at age 18. The Anglophone Section is the second biggest OIB examination centre in the world. Anglophone Section students regularly go on to attend top universities worldwide including Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, Yale and French Grandes Ecoles.
