Welcome to the Anglophone Section of the Lycée International François Premier of Fontainebleau. Since 1979, we have been providing a bilingual education for international children aged six to 18 as a fully integrated part of the French National Educational System.

We aspire to unite English-speaking children in France and give them a memorable and happy start to life, as well as offer them boundless opportunities to excel. Our central location and international environment give us the perfect place to help children learn vital life skills: respect for others, to accept differences and to learn to be of value to society. We want our children to use their time within the Anglophone Section to discover themselves, develop their passions and form their bilingual identities, which are a truly great asset in life.

We know that a fulfilling education goes far beyond the classroom and we try to offer a wealth of cultural activities including drama, music and interesting school trips. Fontainebleau offers a wide variety of educational and historical activities, as well as providing a safe, healthy, outdoor setting for our pupils. Within a tightknit community, parents and staff cooperate closely to make school life lively and eventful and provide many social events for families to meet informally. We want the children to form deep friendships and share values, which will lead them to have balanced and fulfilled lives.

Our team aim is to challenge students and encourage them to resolve problems from different cultural perspectives as well as be flexible and proactive. We want our children to be self-confident and adaptable, able to think on their feet and challenge assumptions in a multicultural environment. We know that these skills are imperative for the rest of their lives wherever they choose to live in the world.

Our alumni have happy memories of their time at the Anglophone Section and have gone on to have interesting and varied careers worldwide. However above all, our wish is that all our students leave us with a strong sense of self-worth and identity, an enquiring mind and an international perspective.

We look forward to warmly welcoming your child into the Anglophone Section of the Lycée International Francois Premier, Fontainebleau.

Shaun Corrigan, Head of the Anglophone Section
