Welcome to the new term.

At The Old School we believe in bringing out the best in people, facing new challenges with a dedication to overcome obstacles.

We are a friendly caring school where children and young people enjoy their learning in a safe and happy environment.

At The Old School we have much to be proud about.

Hopefully this website will begin to share some of the great work that is happening here.

The Old School specialises in positive education outcomes for young people and families making the transition from English speaking countries to France.

We have an impressive track record enabling students to continue their academic studies and achieve the very best results.

The key stage 3 and key stage 4 curriculum places equal importance on wellbeing, emotional intelligence and academic achievement.

At The Old School, we view every young person as an individual and tailor make bespoke education packages to address their needs.

Overview:

The Old School is an independent international Collège and Lycée, recognised by the Academie de Bordeaux RNE 0471040A.

The Old School specialises in positive education outcomes for children, young people and families.

The qualified specialist team at The Old School place equal share on maintaining academic achievement and the development of emotional intelligence, personal and social education. This approach underpins the professional strategies to assist children, young people and families when making the transition to France.

The Old School is not just about academic success, although it is a high achieving school. The focus is on the holistic needs of the learner. An underlying philosophy is happiness in education. An open and transparent approach, where staff work for, and on behalf of, children, young people and families. This cooperative and empowering professional relationship enables success and high achievement.

Whilst the teaching is in English, The Old School is committed to social cohesion and is fully embedded within its local French community. This unique opportunity allows meaningful and real cultural experiences, assistance from reliable sources to enable successful relocation, language development and genuine cultural experiences.

True education empowers the individual to effect positive change. Education challenges prejudice, hatred, and enables empathy and positive emotional intelligence to achieve success.

The Old School is an approved Edexcel examination centre, with facilities for external students to take iGCSE, GCSE and A level examinations whilst in France. We are proud of our consistently excellent examination results.
