Welcome to the Junior School

The evident spirit of friendship that exists in every part of the British School of Paris Junior School creates a unique atmosphere in which our pupils feel happy and thrive. In this nurturing environment, we encourage everyone to establish and develop a lifelong love of learning and to explore their talents. I have high expectations of the teaching staff and they in turn expect the children to do their best; both in and out of the classroom. The children are offered a rich and diverse curriculum and the opportunity to develop skills, knowledge and enjoyment across a wide range of activities. We strive to achieve the highest academic attainment possible for each child. Our children’s happiness is paramount and their wellbeing essential and so high levels of pastoral care are evident throughout.

We opened our purpose-built campus in 2010 which boasts state of the art facilities on the banks of the River Seine. The use of electronic notebooks across the curriculum enhances pupils’ learning and offers opportunities for independent research.

We are unashamedly a family school and there are countless opportunities for you to be involved in your child’s education, a link that is so important and valuable in enhancing your child’s enthusiasm and enjoyment of school. No two days here are the same and I guarantee that you will be swept along by the energy both in work and play that pervades. We look forward to welcoming you.
