Primary School

Our Primary School has two programme options: Extension or Integrated. Both programmes offer the same level of language and literacy instruction to children who are fluent in French and English or French and German.

Our Extension programme on Wednesdays gives bilingual children attending other schools the opportunity to immerse themselves in English or German on Wednesday afternoons. Children who are not fluent in French may attend our Wednesday School.

Our Integrated Section programme is incorporated within one of our French public host schools in Sèvres or Boulogne. Students follow the national primary curriculum in French and have classes with SIS teachers twice a week in language and literacy as well as history-geography in accordance to the Ministry of Education. Integrated students must be fluent in French.

Both of our programmes are enriched by our team of multicultural teachers who have been educated and trained in their countries of origin and have had years of experience with students in bilingual environments.
Students may participate in Workshops in English or German on Wednesdays for an additional fee. A wide range of workshops are offered: drama, music, singing, science, art and games. These workshops are open to students in both our Extension and Integrated programmes.
