Who are we ?
We are a primary school run by the Catholic education of the Bearn and Basque Country, also following the current education program specified by the French state.
We welcome pupils from the age of 3, Petit Section, up to the age of 11, CM2.
All our teachers are qualified and have passed the national standard certificate.
How do we teach ?
We follow the National Education Program set out by the gouvernement. In addition to this we offer bilingualism, where we teach the day equally between English and French. Learning different languages lends itself well to all disciplines. We can also follow a program totally in English or totally in French, depending on the needs of the pupil. We embrace more innovative teaching methods: the Maternelle is inspired by Montessori, classes are more flexible with personalized pupil based learning. We pride ourselves on finding the right education for each child. Alongside this pedagogy we put a strong emphasis on sport, citizenship and the arts for every pupil.
How do we teach religion ?
We are a Catholic School, so therefore throughout the year we celebrate four to five important Religious festivals. We teach the importance of Christian values in the way we respect others, share and show love to one another. Everyone is free to express their own faith. We propose our religious values in the knowledge that some may want to participate and others may not.
