Curriculum Offered
The National Curriculum of England and Wales provides a broad and rigorous programme for all school children. It suggests balanced coverage of the arts, humanities and sciences, expressive arts and physical education, ensuring that pupils develop a wide range of skills and techniques together with creativity and physical well-being.

The curriculum offered at the British School of Paris is based upon the very best practice of the National Curriculum. As with most Independent Schools in the UK, we structure our teaching and learning around the requirements outlined by the National Curriculum, adapting and amending our curriculum offer to suit our pupils’ needs.

French Language Curriculum & Support
Children aged 4 – 11 have a French lesson every day. More is planned for September 2008.
Senior School children have three hours French per week, but examination results are obviously 100% or nearly so.

School History
Founded in 1954 as the English School of Paris, the school was owned and managed by its founding headmistress, Mrs Mary J Cosyn OBE MA, until she retired in 1980. From its humble beginnings as the Paris English School, with a school population of just 40, The British School of Paris of today is a thriving entity,  proudly living up to its motto ‘Validus Corpore Animoque’ – ‘Sound in Body and Mind’.

Technology Facilities
Five IT suites across the school, a committee of teachers and technicians with a budgeted plan for the years to come, and a commitment to the continued development of technology in new buildings, all this testifies to our will to keep abreast of the best in Great Britain.

What is Unique about this School
We accept all children who can benefit from a British-style education. All children have very different needs and at the BSP, we pride ourselves on providing a service to our pupils that is designed to meet each individual’s specific requirements. The programmes we have on offer are flexible and rigorous enough for us to challenge the most able, whilst being able to offer specialist support to pupils who have specific learning difficulties. Our new ‘Intensive English’ classes extend our offer to those with only basic English skills. Our pastoral care is also second to none.
