The Section Internationale La Celle St Cloud – Noisy le Roi (the Section) offers bilingual programmes to children from Maternelle (5 years old) to Lycée (18 years old).  With the exception of the Wednesday Primary programme, all our programmes are integrated in French public schools where the children spend 80% of their time at school working on the French curriculum. It is important to remember that the students are first and foremost part of their French school, where solid competencies in French and Maths are necessary for being accepted into the Section. Our integrated programmes follow the official Section Internationale curriculum recognised by the French Ministry of Education
Applications for individual and distance testing will be accepted whilst places are available. There are however administrative deadlines which we must keep so we encourage you to apply as early as possible. Please contact us for further information.

We charge a non-refundable, minimal fee of 105 euros to cover administrative costs of the applications. The application fee is to be paid by credit card (Visa or Mastercard) when submitting your application online.
Once your child is invited to test, you will be requested to pay the following additional fees.
  • Official Testing dates in France : 35 Euros 
  • Individual Testing in France: 100 Euros
  • Distance Testing: 100 Euros
  • French/Maths Testing (France/Distance): 50 Euros
The testing will be both written and oral to evaluate the children’s comprehension, grammar and writing skills.

We appreciate that, for families abroad, returning to France for official testing dates is not always easy, especially if more than one child is concerned. We will always try to accommodate families with children of different ages when organising individual testing in France. We can also organise distance testing for your children with help from their current school.

Please note that we do NOT test children applying for Grande Section and CP at a distance.

All applications will be processed through Applications Online.

No paper documents will be accepted.
