The Old School

We are a friendly caring school where children 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.
