1000 students, 2-19 yrs

The Lycée Multilingue Ombrosa founded in 1971, is a non-profit making, co-educational, non-sectarian, independent day school providing French and Anglophone education for the international and French community in the Lyon region. Its objectives are entirely educational and concentrate on helping pupils to reach their full potential, aiming to produce pupils who are dynamic and open in their attitude and who are respectful and hardworking. These goals are achieved through close cooperation with parents.

The school campus comprising separate infants, primary, lower and upper secondary units is situated in an extensive park in the northern residential area of Lyon and is well served by a network of school transport.

The children are welcomed into an English speaking Infants School and then receive a bilingual education from fully qualified French and British teachers. In the Lower Secondary School there are three English streams, one for native speakers, one for bilingual pupils and one for beginners. At the age of 11 the children have the opportunity of beginning German or Japanese as a foreign language or they can opt for extra English studies. French as a foreign language is available to those who require it. Spanish is offered from the age of 13. The school operates a comprehensive and well-established exchange programme and the pupils can spend between three weeks and three months being educated in the country of their target language (Japan included). As well as languages a full range of arts, humanities, sciences and sports are catered for. At the end of their lower secondary education the children can prepare the French Brevet and IGCSE certificates. In the Upper Secondary School, the pupils are prepared for a French Baccalauréate or can join the international stream with IGCSE and prepare a bilingual IB Diploma. Special national language certificates are prepared in French, English, German, Japanese and Spanish.

A full range of extra curricular activities and clubs are available to the pupils including gym, judo, football, art, IT and choir. A magazine is also produced and published by members of the senior school. Younger pupils benefit from an established system of pastoral care provided by well qualified senior staff and counselling and career guidance programmes are in place for senior school pupils.

Admission to the school is based on school records and an interview.
