At the lycée, there are currently four international classes in each school year. In seconde (the first year of lycée), students are divided up according to the subject group chosen (such as economics and social sciences - SES) and extra options (such as Latin). In première and terminale - the two final years - there is one class for the ‘L’ literary stream baccalauréat, one for the ‘ES’ economic and social sciences stream and two for the ‘S’ science stream.
As there are about a hundred ‘inter’ students in each year and as lycée classes can contain up to 35 students, classes may contain both English and German-speaking ‘inter’ students and also some ‘national’ students.
However, the timetables of the four ‘inter’ classes in each year are synchronized for SIS subjects. This means that ‘inter’ students are taught these subjects at the same time, divided into groups depending on whether they are working towards the OIB, the DSD German exam or the Cambridge proficiency exam.
No, we are fortunate in having the same number of places from sixième through terminale. A student who works consistently and conscientiously has every chance of staying until the end.
About 1,000 in Sèvres and 650 in Chaville (plus 1,800 at the Sèvres lycée).
In the Sèvres collège there are 10 sixième classes, three of which wholly or mainly comprise ‘inter’ students. In Chaville there are six sixième classes with one half-class of ‘inter’ students.
About 30 students per class in the subjects taught as part of the French curriculum (maths, French, etc.). In the ‘inter’ subjects (literature and history/geography) classes are limited to 20 students. In Sèvres in sixième there are five streamed ‘inter’ classes, three for English and two for German.
If there are only ‘inter’ students in the class, yes. Otherwise classes are mixed. For example, the class in Chaville is half ‘inter’ and half ‘national’. The ‘inter’ group stays together but they are mixed with ‘national’ students for classes which are part of the French curriculum.
