Admissions assessment (Moyenne Section, MS & Grande Section, GS)

A test may be required for students
who have not attended a French state school or a school in the AEFE (Agency for French Education Abroad) network. We will use an age-appropriate assessment to test their ability to adapt to the French curriculum.

October
RC pre-assessment meeting

To give reception class candidates and their families the best possible chances of success and make them feel more confident, our heads of primary meet with them before the assessment and provide advice.

Over the course of the month, we will contact applicants for these year groups, according to their position on the waiting list and their campus preference (as indicated in September).
