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 Pasteur Primary School, La Celle Saint-Cloud for the French national curriculum on a full-time basis, but 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.
Please note that the classes of CP and CE1 have 3 hours in the school timetable and 3 hours on a Wednesday morning. CE2 CM1 and CM2 have their 6 hours integrated in the school timetable, leaving Wednesdays free.
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 Pasteur Primary School but within the town of La Celle Saint Cloud can apply for the Primary Integrated Programme WITHOUT needing a dispensation (“dérogation”). However, places are dependant on the number of children in Pasteur Primary School and are not guaranteed. If you live outside La Celle Saint-Cloud, you will require a dispensation, once students have passed the entrance test.
