At Lycée Condorcet Sydney (LCS) our mission is to give students a world-class education in an international environment that allows them to graduate as French-English bilingual citizens of the world.
As well as offering a complete school curriculum for children aged 3 to 18 in French and English, LCS is also a member of the worldwide network of French schools abroad and follows the principles and values of educational excellence 'à la française'.
Our students come from all over the world and from many different backgrounds to gain a high-quality, well-rounded education in a French yet multicultural environment. After graduation they are able to pursue further studies anywhere they choose as citizens of the world.“Lycée Condorcet Sydney teaches students critical thinking and how to be citizens of the world. I like the fact that there is an emphasis on academic achievement to a high level and that when they finish high school they will be fluent in up to four languages.” Suzanne Salter, parent.
Our educational values
Students of LCS consistently achieve excellent baccalaureate results and very high ATAR scores. The internationally recognised FB (French Baccalaureate), and the recent introduction of the OIB allow students to go on to study at the best schools in France, Australia, the United Kingdom, the US and throughout the world. We also offers for year 11 and year 12 students the possibility to do the IB (currently under Strategic review), a private Swiss diploma taught in english and internationally recognised by Universities.
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 an international option (OIB) and also offer the possibility for Year 11 and Year 12 students to do IB we also offer the International Baccalaureate (IB). Thus, students from French and multicultural backgrounds have more options to choose from.
There are currently students of 27 different nationalities at Lycée Condorcet. This sustains our mission to give students an international education that will enable them to 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. ” 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.
