536 students, 6-18 yrs.

Part of a state-sponsored French international school, the English-speaking section of the Cité Scolaire Internationale de Lyon welcomes children with an appropriate level of English (native or excellent bilingual) who can benefit from being integrated into the French public system.

The Anglophone Section of the Cité Scolaire Internationale de Lyon is sponsored by a non-profit parents' association in accordance with guidelines established by the French Ministry of Education and is under the authority of the proviseur (headteacher) of the Lycée. The Cité Scolaire Internationale de Lyon is fully accredited by the French Ministry of National Education. The academic programme follows the standard national curriculum of France at all levels. For new students, this programme can be modified with a special intensive French integration programme where French is taught as a foreign language. In addition, students follow six hours of instruction per week (eight hours for the final two years) in English (language, literature, history and geography) taught at native-speaker level. Students prepare for British, American and French examinations. Separate German, Italian, Polish, Japanese and Spanish sections also exist. Students may prepare for the GCSE, SAT and Cambridge language examinations: First Certificate, Advanced, Proficiency. The final diploma is the French Baccalauréat, International Option, which assures university entrance into English-speaking universities. The Section provides guidance for admissions into universities in Europe, North America and all English-speaking countries in general.

There are several extra-curricular activities run by Anglophone Section staff at the Cité Scolaire Internationale de Lyon, including Model United Nations, International Award Programme for Young People (Duke of Edinburgh's Award), literary magazine, drama and basketball clubs.

The English-speaking staff hold qualifications in their specialized areas from American, British, or other home-country universities and have had at least three years' teaching experience in those home systems. The French programme is taught by certified French teachers. The Section's student body is 60% French, 35% English-speaking nationalities, and 5% other nationalities.

The Cité Scolaire Internationale de Lyon year begins on September 3 and ends on June 30, with ten-day holidays in November and approximately two weeks at Christmas, in late February and in late April. The school day begins at 08:00 and finishes at 17:30 (for middle school it is 08:50-16:30); no classes are held on Saturday.
