    “The IST is a wonderful opportunity for children to be taught in English, using the British curriculum, while surrounded by a vast numbers of nationalities, living in France. This enables the children to experience many different cultures. The teaching is up to a high standard and my children have blossomed while being at the school. As a parent it has also been a life saver in helping to meet other like-minded parents who have made the decision to send their children to an international school” (CR, December 2011)

    “My children do not go to this school but it is only because we live too far away, although I have been tempted to try to make the journey each day! I do however work with the headmistress and the teaching team when I sell my english children’s books, so I know the school quite well and I recommend it to everyone! It is idyllic, set in the grounds of an old barn, it is the kind of school that you dream of sending your kids to. The team are lovely with a gentle approach to the children, who are extremely lucky to be going there. All teachers speak both English and French and it is a bilingual education. Every Spring, the school hosts an English Spring Fair, with horse rides, face painting, stalls and ploughman lunches giving those who don’t attend the school the chance to enjoy this wonderful location" (HS, December 2011)
