What is the admissions process at IBS of Provence ?
Students interested in applying to IBS of Provence can apply using our online Admissions Application on the link below. We accept applications year-round based on availability.
The completed application must include the documents requested – the last two year’s of official school marks, a letter of motivation by the student, copy of student’s passport, current photo and a letter of recommendation from a teacher or school administrator (if possible, and only for Secondary students).
The application is reviewed by our Admissions Committee which includes the Academic Director for that class. A full examination is given to the overall profile of the student to ensure that the school is a good fit for the student, and that the student is a good fit for the school. If further information is needed in order to assess, an additional recommendation letter or personal interview may be requested. Once the application is accepted, it will then go to the Admissions team to see if a place is available in the class and/or boarding house if needed.

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. We do not accept students who are not motivated and who have behavorial issues which we feel will disrupt classroom learning.
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 (except final two years of schooling Year 12 and Year 13).
What is the academic record of the school ?
