Lycée Condorcet is an international French school that welcomes students of all nationalities and backgrounds. We teach the French national curriculum from age 3 to year 12, and offer our students three different graduating diploma options; the academically renowned BAC or French Baccalaureate, the IB High-school diploma.
We are able to welcome international students for both short-term and long-term enrolments starting year 11. If you are a French-speaker, you may join Lycée Condorcet at any age and for any period of time, whereas English speakers may join our 2-year International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme in year 11 and year 12.
Hear what our students and alumni have to say about their experiences at our school. From the outstanding education they received to the friendships and memories they made, our community has had a profound impact on their lives.
The IB diploma programme is a two-year end of secondary school program available at schools in 150 different countries across the globe.
The programme is rigorous, challenging and extremely rewarding, with pupils able to choose their own subjects and focus on areas that they are interested in and passionate about. The diploma, taught in English but with French as a compulsory subject, is globally recognised and renowned for preparing well-rounded students that excel in higher education and international careers.
The French Baccalaureate, the ‘Bac’, is an internationally recognised diploma which is often considered a reference when evaluating general cultural knowledge, critical thinking and academic progress.
The programme is demanding, comprehensive and adaptable, with a wide range of subjects, specialisations and options including science, geopolitics, mathematics, sports, literature, philosophy and foreign languages. The programme is taught at a native French level, with C1 being the recommended level for students joining the programme.
The international version of the French Baccalaureate Diploma is called the BFI, le Baccalauréat Français International.
This diploma is an integrated Franco-British school-leaving certificate, combining the French Baccalaureate, taught in French at a C1 level, with extra subjects examined to English A-level standard studied over the course of two years.
