La Garenne offers an international education in English for students from 4 years old to 13 years old.  The school is divided into 3 sections: the Cubs (4-7), the Minis (8-10) and the Juniors (11-13).  

Educational System en

We use the British National Curriculum to underpin our Literacy and Mathematics learning; our broad and balanced curriculum is tailored to meet the individual needs of each child.  We ensure optimum progress in Literacy and Mathematics, as we believe that these key learning areas are essential. 

In addition to studying the core subjects, students become immersed in integrated studies through the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) units of work.  The key subjects studied within the curriculum are science, geography, history, D & T and computing.  This provides the children with the skills they need to be adaptable and flexible in a rapidly changing world.

Students have the benefit of specialized teachers with a passion for their subject in the curriculum areas of physical education, art, music and French.

Work is differentiated for each child and targets are set.  La Garenne has high expectations and more advanced work is given to challenge the students when required.

Each term the parents receive a full and comprehensive report concerning the student’s progress in and out of the classroom.  Students are continuously assessed and leveled against the National Curriculum criteria using the Assessing Pupils` Progress (APP) guidelines.  At the end of each term children are given exams in each subject and in the third term they complete a Standardized Assessment Test (SATs) in English and mathematics.

La Garenne International School welcomes children between the ages of 5 (Year 1 / Kindergarten) and 16 (Year 11 / Grade 10) of more than 35 nationalities from around the world. As of September 2020 our seniors will get a new home in the newly renovated building of Senior School Le Roc located in Villars. The new location will allow us to create a cutting edge education facility to nurture talents of each student, meeting their individual needs.

We pride ourselves on our English-French bilingual approach, giving students expertise in two languages. Students follow the official English national curriculum, in parallel with developing a mastery of the French language. Academic excellence, a warm international family ambience in which diversity is welcomed, and a safe location in exceptional surroundings, are our core values.
