The school is also fully accredited, and is a full member of the European Council of International Schools (ECIS).

The school accepts children aged from two and a half to eighteen. Specialist language support teachers ensure that children can integrate the school at all levels, regardless of their level of English and French.

The school attempts to maintain the school fees as low as possible: for 2016-17 fees are 7,950 € - 9,950 € per annum.
The school believes that education is a collective endeavor, in partnership with parents and children alike. Seeking to incorporate new technology with tried and trusted methods, the school combines modernity with classical methods of education, especially in those critical years where children are learning to read and write, and acquire those life skills which will prepare them for leadership in the future.
Believing that the creative arts are an invaluable means of personal development, the school offers the opportunity to excel in music and drama, producing a Gilbert & Sullivan operetta every year.
In addition the school offers a wide range of extra-curricular activities ranging from Golf, Tennis and Rugby to Opera and Science clubs.
