UPPER SCHOOL – 3ème, 2nde, 1ère, Tle
For the past 30 years, IBS has been preparing students for entrance to universities around the world.
In addition to the French students who make up 45% of the student population, IBS welcomes pupils from the five continents desiring to pursue their education in English, French or both.
Committed to French-English bilingualism and the preparation of our students for a variety of international examinations, the Upper School offers its students three different sections:
- The International Section – which follows the IGCSE Cambridge programme in Years 10 and 11 followed by the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme in Years 12 and 13. IBS is one of the largest IB schools in France with a diverse student body and a highly qualified and experienced teaching staff from around the world.
- The French Section – which follows the National French Education programme with the BREVET exam in 3ème followed by preparation leading to the French Baccalaureate during the last three years (2nde, 1ère, Tle).
- Mixed International/French Section – for a small number of students in 3ème or 2nde, IBS offers a mixed programme which allows students to develop their French language skills while maintaining their core subjects in English.
IBS of Provence has a proven record of academic excellence while pursuing our aim to guide our students to becoming caring and respectful ‘world’ citizens.
