Bordeaux International School
Bordeaux International School was established in 1988 by the non-profit making Association Linguistique et Culturelle Internationale. It provides full-time primary and secondary education from the age of 3 to 19.
Kindergarten and Primary sections at Bordeaux International School are bilingual. The Primary section is accredited by the French Ministry of Education ( sous contrat ). The English-speaking students at the Bordeaux International School follow the English National Curriculum, and the French speaking students, the French National programme, both adapted to serve the needs of an international community.
In the Secondary section at Bordeaux International School, classes are taught in English and students are therefore only accepted if their competence in English is satisfactory. Students prepare for IGCSEs, and the AS and A2 Level examinations in a range of subjects. The programmes are adapted to meet the needs of American students requiring entry qualifications to colleges in the United States. Emphasis is placed on acquiring competence in the French language both through small classes within the school and involvement in educational, sporting and cultural facilities offered by the city outside the Bordeaux International School.
Throughout the Bordeaux International School, classes are limited to a maximum of 12 students with an average of seven. Standardised test are given at ages 7, 11 and 14.
The staff (60% British, 40% other nationalities) are all fully qualified and experienced. The student population is approximately 40% British and 60% French and other nationalities in the Primary Section and 70% British, 17% American and 13% other nationalities in the secondary section.
