About Our School

Mission

Our School provides English classes for fluent English speaking children between the ages of 3 to 11 being brought up in a bilingual environment. Many of the children have one or two English-speaking parents and English is spoken at home. Others have returned from abroad where their schooling was in English and wish to maintain their fluency.

Our school is a non-profit Association and was established in 2003. It is run by a team of administrators and fully trained English-language mother tongue teachers.

Premises

OurSchool is based in premises owned by the Collège Sacré Coeur in the Saint Louis area of Versailles.

Classes

We strive to maintain class numbers adapted the requirements of bilingual teaching. The class numbers are therefore small and children develop their speaking, reading and writing abilities in English.

Nursery children take time off their French school two afternoons a week and the primary children attend school on Wednesdays.

Teachers

The teachers are all native English speakers. They are qualified with professional experience and are highly dedicated to creating a fun, friendly, but also hardworking environment at Our School.

Educational program

OurSchool provides a program directly based on equivalent British standards and the standard is high therefore all children must have good spoken English. The work in primary classes is more formal with emphasis on grammar, spelling and comprehension, preparing for international classes at secondary school.

Many of the children take the entrance exam for the international schools at the end of CM2 for entry at secondary school level.
