We have a separate site for the Secondary school starting from September 2016. The school will announce plans for the secondary school as soon as these are finalised.

Ages are measured on 1st September, so to enter Year 1 a child must be 5 before the 1st September. In the French & Tunisian systems ages are measured on the 1st January – so there may be 1/2 a year difference in placement between different school systems.

Children are placed in their class according to their age, rather than their ability.  It is then the teacher’s job to teach the child at a level appropriate to his or her needs and abilities.  The school may sometimes run a vertically grouped class, because of reduced numbers, but parents should be re-assured that a two year curriculum is used, and that children are taught according to their level and performance.

Growth of the school

The school is planning to continue to add one class per year, so that any children joining the school can continue in the same education system.
