Our Education values

Our Education values

 

Lycée Condorcet Sydney’s core values are academic excellence, bilingualism, world citizenship and multiculturalism

 

Academic excellence

Students of LCS consistently achieve excellent baccalaureate results and very high ATAR scores. The internationally recognised FB (French Baccalaureate) and IB (International Baccalaureate) allow students to go on to study at the best schools in France, Australia, the United Kingdom, the US and throughout the world.

 

Bilingualism

Our teaching principles are based around the idea of children becoming fluent in at least two languages, French and English. And because we believe in a bilingual education system, we have recently increased the proportion of the French curriculum that is taught in English.

In addition to the French Baccalaureate followed by both French and non-French students, we also offer the International Baccalaureate (IB). This gives more educational options for students from French and multicultural backgrounds. It also offers another entry point for non-French speaking families who would like to benefit from the French environment without having to study in French or follow the French curriculum.

 

World citizenship

There are currently students of 27 different nationalities at Lycée Condorcet. This supports our mission to give students an international education that will enable them find their feet anywhere in the world and respect other cultures and different environments.

As we are registered with the Agency for French Teaching Abroad (AEFE), students have access to 494 schools in 135 countries with the same teaching philosophy and curriculum should their family relocate during their years of schooling.

“We liked the fact that Lycéee Condorcet Sydney is part of an international network, so no matter where we moved we knew there would be continuity with schooling for the children. And the fact that there are two options, FB or IB, means we are confident they will have the opportunity to continue studying anywhere in the world.” Marine Pestel, parent.

“You don’t have to be from France to be at the school – LCS offers the opportunity for kids to learn at least two languages and become bilingual – it’s in the DNA from day one. More than the languages, the students are learning two cultures and how to become true citizens of the world.” François Romanet, parent.
