What are the criteria for admission to IBS of Provence ?
At IBS of Provence we accept applications from students with all different types of backgrounds and academic interests. We are not an “elitist” school but we do look for motivated kids, who want to learn and will thrive in our multicultural environment.
What level of English (or French) does my child need to speak in order to attend your school ?
We do not have a minimum requirement for English or French for the younger students (6ème to 4ème). Of course, if your child is older and applying to the IGCSE or IB Diploma programme, they should have a level of English sufficient to follow the courses. If they are older and applying to the French Baccalauréat then they need a level of French sufficient to allow them to follow the French programme.
Is it really possible for my child to learn French in one year ?
Yes, we have had hundreds of students join us in the past 35 years who have gone home after only one year with a good level of French and without losing their native language.
Is there a school uniform ?
There is a partial school uniform at IBS of Provence for all primary and secondary students (Yrs 7/8/9/10), with the exception of the final two years. Students in Years 11, 12 and 13 are expected to dress appropriately such that they do not disturb the learning of others around them.
What is the academic record of the school ?
IBS of Provence has a strong academic record in all exams – IGCSE’s, IB Diploma, Baccalauréat Français….and more. You can find below a link to our Exam Results which we update annually.
