The British School of Paris
About The British School of Paris
The British School of Paris is a non-selective co-educational independent school which provides British education of a high quality to an international student clientele. Founded in 1954 as a centre of holistic education for a British ex-patriot community, it has developed over the years into a truly international School with students of over 50 nationalities on roll, from age 3 to 18.
Following the fine traditions of independent schools in the UK, The British School of Paris has adopted a philosophy of education which unlocks the potential of all students by identifying strengths and supporting areas of development, while ensuring that students have fun and enjoy strong relationships. The academic programme is largely based on the English National Curriculum adapted to the special circumstances of our international clientele. The School embraces the challenges of modern education and provides for a high degree of flexibility within its well-balanced curriculum.
The British School of Paris is a high achieving school in the context of British and international fee-paying education, with tailored provision for educational support for children who experience learning difficulties. Small overall numbers, modest class sizes and a supportive pastoral care system mean that new pupils integrate quickly and find themselves well motivated in their work. The pupils participate in a wide range of extra-curricular activities, and they enjoy excellent results at all levels in standardised UK examinations.
The school is situated beside a beautiful stretch of the Seine in the town of Croissy sur Seine, in the western suburbs of Paris. The Junior and Senior School campuses, adjacent to each other on the river bank, include a nineteenth century manor house, indoor sports hall, all-weather pitches, dedicated and well-equipped science laboratories and purpose-built Junior School, which was opened in 2010. All classrooms are equipped with interactive whiteboards and we were the first school in France, from 2012, to issue all pupils from Reception Year to university-bound Year 13 with iPad digital tablets to enhance learning across the curriculum.
