College Information Meeting

During this information meeting, we will explain the curriculum & the admissions process, as well as answer any questions you may have.
This is mainly for parents of children currently in CM2 looking for a place in 6ème in September 2020 but any other levels are of course more than welcome.
Please download this brochure which gives an overview of the Colleges and our programmes, as well as important dates in the Admissions Process.

Programme du collège (6ème-5ème-4ème-3ème)

Ce programme propose 6 heures de cours d'anglais par semaine, dont 4 heures de littérature anglaise et 2 heures d'histoire/géographie. Il suit le programme officiel des autorités éducatives françaises et britanniques. Les élèves peuvent donc obtenir la "Mention Internationale" du Brevet des collèges en fin de 3ème. Ils commencent également la préparation de l'examen de littérature anglaise IGCSE, sanctionné en fin de seconde.
Ce programme est proposé dans deux collèges publics français des Yvelines, à l’ouest de Paris, entourés de verdure.Les deux collèges sont classés dans les 10 meilleurs collèges des Yvelines et ont d'excellents résultats au Brevet.

Le collège Pasteur de la Celle St Cloud  is a small, family-oriented college with approximately 440 students and is part of the Groupe Scolaire with Pasteur Primary School. Pupils attending this school also come from Rueil-Malmaison, Bougival, Louveciennes & Vaucresson.

Collège Jean Baptiste de la Quintinye, Noisy le Roi is a larger college with approximately 660 students. It has excellent sports facilities and public transport links. For further information on the College, please cliquez ici for the “Projet d’Etablissement 2019-2024“.

The train L connects Noisy le Roi with Saint Nom la Bretèche, Mareil Marly and Saint Germain en Laye.  Buses run from Versailles (17), Plaisir (20), Vaucresson (76), Marly le Roi (75) and Saint Cyr l’Ecole (77).  There is also extensive ongoing work to connect Noisy le Roi and Bailly to Saint Germain en Laye (RER A) and Saint Cyr l’Ecole (RER C and trains to Montparnasse) with delivery dates expected 2021.

The college serves the towns of Noisy le Roi and Bailly; a little less well-known than La Celle St Cloud but both towns offer many activities (sports, cultural etc) in beautiful countryside, only 10 minutes from Versailles. The attached video will give you a taste of what Bailly can offer.
