Where better to study the IB diploma than at the International French School of Sydney? Located between Sydney's famous beaches and the central business district, the Lycée Condorcet is an international school with a welcoming and friendly campus. Here, for the past 50 years students of all nationalities from ages 3-18 study the rigorous French curriculum, renowned for its excellent academic standard. Since 2005, the Lycée Condorcet also offers the IB Diploma Programme in Year 11 and 12, attracting ambitious students from diverse backgrounds with one common goal; to become informed, inquiring and active global citizens.
While other Lycée Condorcet pupils study at a native French and English level, IB students are not required to have any prior French language knowledge as the program is taught in English. Therefore, students will learn French at their own pace with classes ranging from introductory to native level. In fact, students benefit from the opportunity to obtain the prestigious bilingual IB diploma in French and English.
Importantly, although situated in Australia, the school operates on the northern hemisphere calendar - the school year begins in August and final IB diploma examinations are held in May. We offer a two-month IB and French Preparatory program in May-June in which students will be able to get a taste of different IB subjects to help them choose which ones they would like to study when the program begins in August.
Although the Lycée Condorcet student body consists of approximately 1100 students representing over 50 different nationalities, the school consciously limits the IB class sizes in order to facilitate individualised learning. Through the promotion of French and Australian cultures, we aim to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people while working to promote international and intercultural understanding and respect.
The Lycée Condorcet belongs to the global network of French Schools Abroad, the AEFE, an active network in which students interact regularly through projects, sports competitions, cultural events and more. Students are able to not only transfer seamlessly from one school within the network to another, but also to meet and build friendships with children from all over the world, making friends for life.
