An integrated International Section entails 6 hours of English tuition (English Literature, English Language, Geography and Science) for the Section’s CP, CE1, CE2, CM1 & CM2 students that is incorporated into their French Primary timetable.
The students attend École Élémentaire Pasteur, La Celle Saint-Cloud for the French national curriculum on a full-time basis, but in addition come together for two 3 hour periods, typically either 2 afternoons or 1 morning + 1 afternoon. These English classes are taught by an experienced English mother-tongue teacher.
There is an entrance test to get into the Integrated Primary Section and students must be strong academically, in both French and English. Families living outside the catchment area for Ecole Elémentaire Pasteur but within the town of La Celle Saint-Cloud can apply for the Primary Integrated Programme WITHOUT needing a dispensation (“dérogation”). If you live outside La Celle Saint-Cloud however, you will require a dispensation, once students have passed the entrance test.
