Enrolment in IB

Enrolments for a start in IB1 in August 2020 are open. Students who enrol in 2020 in IB 1 are guaranteed to be offered the program for their year 1 for the school year 2020-2021 and their year 2 for the school year 2021-2022.
However, the maintaining of the program for the following years is subject to conditions as explained in the memo attached below (option 1) and the school cannot guarantee at this stage that the IB will be offered in the coming years.
The LCS enrolment team as well as the IB coordinator are available for any further information.
Due to the increasing number of applications, we are managing waiting lists on certain levels.
Within the limit of available places, priority is given, among others, to siblings, to students coming from an AEFE school, to students enrolled in a French school in order to guarantee the follow up of the school program.
The school reserves the right to ask for information about the family project and to refuse a student whose family project is not in line with the school project.
Similarly, in exceptional circumstances, the school reserves the right to allocate places beyond its capacity.
All students must have an adequate visa from the Australian authorities as of 1st day of school.The school can only accept a limited number of students with a student visa. Moreover, the student visa grant is subject to restrictive conditions: only students in Première / IB1 or Terminale / IB2 and staying with a host family are eligible. In that case, we will ask cover letters from the student and his/ her parents, as well as references letters from 3 previous teachers. of a Also, please note that the Australian authorities do not allow us to enrol students who arrive on a tourist visa for more than 3 months.
Children above 6 years old children who have not studied in a french school may have to be evaluated in order to ensure they will face no difficulty in their class of age.
From 1 April 2018, the immunisation requirements in primary and secondary schools were formulated by the Health Minister so that all school principals are required to:
- request an immunisation certificate at enrolment (provided by an australian GP or medicare)
- record each child’s immunisation status in a register and retain copies of approved immunisation certificates for a period of 3 years after the child has ceased to attend the school
- provide a copy of a child’s immunisation certificate to another school that the child has transferred to (upon request)
- notify the public health unit if an enrolled child has a vaccine preventable disease, or if they reasonably believe that an unimmunised enrolled child has come into contact with someone who has a vaccine preventable disease
- exclude unimmunised children at risk of contracting a disease from attending school on the direction of a public health officer.
