One of the very first International Sections created by the Ministry, the Anglophone Section has offered the OIB (Option International du Baccalauréat) since the creation of this exam in 1982. Home to over 420 students and encompassing more than 22 different nationalities, it is the second largest British OIB examining centre in the world. This highly demanding flagship examination is offered by the French Ministy of Education and moderated by Cambridge International Examinations, which itself is part of the University of Cambridge.
