The Lycée of Sèvres is a French state school that incorporates International Sections (one Anglophone and one Germanophone) in which the students have an extra curriculum in order to prepare and choose between the French Baccalauréat or the bilingual Option Internationale du Baccalaureat (OIB) which assures English-speaking university entrance. Preparation is provided for IGCSE, DSD, and language exams (CPE, FCE, SATs) designed for students intending to study in the UK, Canada, the USA or German-speaking countries, as well as in France.

The students at Lycée de Sèvres, International Sections are prepared for these exams by a team of fully-qualified teachers whose mother tongue is either English or German. The fees charged for the sections go towards the salaries of these teachers who are not part of the state system. All other classes are taught in French to follow the French national curriculum. Spanish, Italian, Russian and Japanese are also taught at the Lycée.

Teachers at Lycée de Sèvres, International Sections have considerable experience in running extra-curricular activities. History trips (in France and abroad) and debates (student council and Harvard Model Congress) are important parts of the curriculum. In addition, drama is a vital part of school life. The Anglophone Section has built up a considerable reputation for its dramatic adaptations with music, and the annual production is a major Section event.

The Lycée de Sèvres, International Sections school year runs from September to June 30 with a school day from 08:00 to 17:00. The Sections enjoy the full facilities of the 2,300-student Lycée. In addition, International Sections also exist at the Collège of Chaville and Sèvres (10-14 years), and English primary classes are offered every Wednesday from 08:30 to 11:30, mainly for children from bilingual families.

Students commute from western Paris and surrounding towns such as Versailles and Saint Cloud. Sèvres has an excellent public transport system with two suburban train lines direct from Paris, a metro station (Pont-de-Sèvres), a tramway line and several bus routes.
