Tuition fees

Fees are set at the beginning of the academic year, in late September or early October. The fees change from year to year due to inflation and fluctuations in the number of pupils enrolled. The actual fee for a particular child depends on the number of teaching Hours per Week (HPW). This is typically 3 for Primary and 6 for Collège, but may be 8 or more in some classes depending on the options studied. For most children, the fees per instalment will be as set out in the following table. Fees are billed in two instalments, as shown in the table.

Primary

3

1130 + 1130 = 2260

565 + 565 = 1130

Collège

6

1808 + 1808 = 3616

904 + 904 = 1808

Seconde/1ère

6

1808 + 1808 = 3616

904 + 904 = 1808

Terminale

7

2034 + 2034 = 4068

1017 + 1017 = 2034

 

Fees are reduced by 30% for a third child, 40% for a fourth child and so on.

For students in the Collège who are also taking mathematics option, the fees will be 2260 + 2260 = 4520 at the full rate or 1130 + 1130 = 2260 at the reduced rate.

Students in Seconde and 1ère taking the mathematics option have an additional three hours of teaching a week. This brings the total number of hours a week to 9; fees are therefore 2486 + 2486 = 4972 at the full rate or 1243 + 1243 = 2486 at the reduced rate.

Fee collection

The above fees are shown as the sum of two instalments.  The first instalment is due in November and the second instalment, normally for the same amount, is due in March. In addition, charges for books (see Book fees for 2018-19 list), school trips and any exam or university application fees are included on the second invoice. A new member fee of 100 € is charged once to families new to the Programme.

Please note that, when you are enrolling your children, you commit yourself to pay fees f or the whole school year.  Pro-rata reductions are available for children joining the Programme during the school year. Partial reimbursements may be made in certain cases when children have to leave the Programme before the end of the school year, if sufficient advance notice is given.

It remains the responsibility of parents to settle bills by the due date, irrespective of whether they receive an education subsidy from an employer.

We may offer reduced fee rates, depending on the eligibility of parents for an educational subsidy from their employer.  Please note that, as a French association providing English Language education within the French public education system, reductions can only be considered for families resident in France. Details of available fee reductions can be obtained by logging on to the Association's web site (for existing members of the Association), or on request from the Programme secretary.
