IBS of Provence Sports Studies Program
This program is designed for students who want to embrace a career as an athlete or simply want to live fully their passion.
We make sure all aspects of the student athlete life run smoothly.
Sports performance together with academic success are both a priority to us. Everything is put in place to keep a flexible schedule and remain reactive everyday to fit all children’s projects.
The Sports Partners:
Student athletes are free to choose their sports centre / team / coach.
However, if you need to be accompanied to find the right centre for you, we will help you. We make sure sports life has an impact on academic life by including a mark and a comment in the school report that comes from the sports coach up to 2nde.
On the school premises, student athletes have the opportunity to work with Thomas Adriaens. He offers up to three sessions a week aiming at strengthening core muscles, core postural strength, cardio work out, preparation and cool down. Physical capacity is assessed and also appears on the school report.
It is possible to reduce the number of hours via different arrangements depending on which section your child is. Generally, we are able to For the younger ones, we are able to liberate up to 6 hours a week by allowing art and sports to be skipped.
In the PreIB section, students can select 6 subjects instead of 9, which correspond to the profile they are aiming for at IB level. There is flexibility for a change of subject at the start of the IB since not all subjects are liable to having been studied prior to the IB program in order to enrol.
In the IB section, we offer to lighten the time spent on academic studying through organising the program over 3 years instead of 2.
Individual Academic Tutoring:
On the school premises, a qualified and experienced teacher follows our sports students in small groups excessively composed of athlete students. Up to four hours of contact are dedicated to individual monitoring and are offered after school or during the day, may the timetable permits.
