Our Alumni

The Anglophone Section within the French public schools of Fontainebleau provides a world-class educational experience that will deliver to your child the tools he or she needs to succeed in life. Many of our graduates attend top Universities in the United Kingdom and the United States – from the Ivy Leagues to Cambridge, Oxford, and the London School of Economics, our alumni infuse the world’s finest schools with their presence.

“I want to thank the Anglophone Section for the amazing experience I am having at the University of Sheffield following my BA degree in Journalism. I would like to thank you for the full support I had in my last year of college and for the amazing job the staff did for us as students. I’m grateful for the advice Mr. Corrigan and Mrs. Kendrick have given me to realize my biggest dream. Every single thing I did with the Anglophone Section was a treasure: The general classes, the trips, the books we read, the MUN, the plays… All of these are helping me out every day to integrate myself in my new city. It is surely the best experience of my life thanks to the teaching I had been given by the Anglophone Section.”

– Mariana R. (former student)

I was once like you. A student, concerned with enjoying life and dreading (some) studies. I studied Chemistry at university. I had no idea what I really wanted to do at the age of 17 but it was my best guess. I still was still discovering until very recently what it is I would love to do, age 28. I did not learn my job at school or university. But I learned the languages, social interaction skills and basics that made this possible. My advice to students? You have tons of time to discover yourselves, here and after school. Make sure to use the diverse cultures you meet in Fontainebleau to drive you to explore the wider world around you once you have the chance. And travel, you won’t regret it.

What happens to our Alumni?

About 50% of students choose to study in UK universities. We are proud of all our students who make it into top UK universities but particularly of the three who were accepted this year into Cambridge.

About 10% of our students choose to study in US universities. Many students are accepted by both UK and US universities and their final choice varies. The remaining students either go to French Grande Ecoles, European universities, Australian universities or other chosen career paths across the world.

They then go on to corporate finance institutions, engineering companies, international law firms, world-wide business ventures, scientific research institutes etc. Just about anywhere in the world, you may come across dynamic, eloquent, multi-lingual, multi-cultural alumni of the Anglophone Section of Fontainebleau!

Alumni can keep in touch with one another and the Section by joining the Section group via LinkedIn or Facebook. The annual Anglophone Section alumni cocktail is always a great evening as it brings together alumni students and teachers (both past and present) for a chance to reconnect and renew their friendships.
