Walls for education

Back
The current site of our international school has been dedicated to education for over a hundred years. Since 1903 the school has continued to develop, adapting to changes in teaching methods and requirements. Our bilingual school offers French and English instruction.

Thanks to IIL visionary governance, the school has been restructuring the campus over the last 15 years with an aim to providing optimum conditions adapted to 21st century education.

A number of steps in the process have been completed since 2000 and  IIL already benefits from a first-class infrastructure. The final phase of the project will be completed in September 2017 with the opening of a new building on the site of the old Claire-Joie building which dated back to the 1950s.

The original school was housed in the Marie-Thérèse building which was completely renovated in 2011 and is now occupied by French Primary classrooms, as well as two art rooms fostering an atmosphere of creativity. A classic example of 1900s architecture, it is equipped throughout with IT resources. Parents visiting the school will be greeted at the reception on the ground floor.

The main building was completed in two phases, finalised in 2005 and 2008. It is characterised by spacious corridors with an emphasis being given to the use of natural light. The French maternelle classrooms are situated on the ground floor, while Secondary classrooms are situated on two upper floors along three wings  and are adapted to a variety of teaching and learning activities, with space for individualised teacher support for students, class work displays, exhibitions, and an iBar providing IT support for students and teachers (each student owns an IPad).

The building contains the main school canteen, a fully-equipped sports hall with changing rooms, a chapel, four science laboratories, and two multi-purpose rooms. The more recent addition of an audio-visual studio is a valuable and much-used facility.

The final stage in the construction programme will provide a significant complement to existing facilities and will house a new sports hall and additional canteen. A theatre with seating for 200  will open up a host of new possibilities. Two floors will be entirely given over to teaching. Modular areas, allowing for flexibility in classroom size and setting, will be adaptable to teaching innovations.

The IIL blog provides regular updates on the construction work in progress.
