About LCS

Lycée Condorcet Sydney - The International French School

At Lycée Condorcet Sydney, our mission is to give students a world-class education in an international environment that allows them to graduate as French-English bilingual citizens of the world. As well as offering a complete school curriculum for children aged 3 to 18 in French and English, LCS is also a member of the worldwide network of French schools abroad and follows the principles and values of educational excellence “à la française.” Our students come from all over the world and from many different backgrounds to gain a high-quality, well-rounded education in a French yet multi-cultural environment. After graduation they are able to pursue further studies anywhere they choose as citizens of the world.












Meet the Principal

"At Lycée Condorcet, we offer students and their families a completely unique educational experience."

We offer students from all over the world and all nationalities a unique educational experience from Maternelle to Year 12 (French or International Baccalaureate). We currently have over 1000 students of 57 different nationalities enrolled in our school. With an emphasis on academic excellence and multiculturalism, our mission is to educate students in an international setting so they can become multilingual citizens of the world. Lycée Condorcet Sydney is part of the international network of French schools registered with the French Ministry of Education and the Agency for French Teaching Abroad (AEFE) as well as the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA).

The school curriculum is taught in both French and English, with the opportunity to learn additional languages from the beginning of the secondary school. This allows students to leave feeling at home not just in France or Australia, but anywhere in the world. LCS also has a rich cultural, sporting and artistic life that contributes to the overall personal development and academic excellence of our students. This focus on a well-rounded education in a diverse, friendly and nurturing environment makes LCS an incomparable and forward-thinking choice for your child’s education.

On behalf of all the staff, I am proud to welcome you to Lycée Condorcet Sydney.

Sébastien Mathey,

AEFE - a Global Network

Excellence, sharing, outreach… Created in 1990, the Agency for French Education Abroad (AEFE) is a national public institution under the supervision of the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs.

535 schools in 139 countries offer education in line with the requirements of the French national education system. These approved establishments are the bearers of humanist values – tolerance, equality between girls and boys, equal opportunities, intellectual curiosity and critical thinking – and allow for seamless multilingual schooling from nursery school to the baccalaureate, as well as access to higher education worldwide.

Beyond academic excellence, being part of this network allows our students to benefit from the worldwide network of French schools abroad, and thus to participate in numerous cultural, sporting and artistic events around the world, in the ADN-AEFE exchange programme and to be part of the network of alumni of French schools around the world.
