The Premises

The school is housed in purpose-built facilities in its own grounds in a residential suburb just south west of Lyon city centre. The building was designed in the 1970s for a French middle school (collège) and includes three science laboratories, two art rooms, a large music room, a library, and two ICT suites. Rooms are light and spacious and grouped in clusters.

Primary and Secondary school each have their own area, including separate ICT facilities , but share the library and the art and music rooms. The school has a small gym, but many sports activities take place outdoors in a local stadium or in the public gym and swimming pool of the neighbouring districts. The outdoor premises include a primary playground, a soccer/basketball field, a small amphitheatre and a beautiful alley of chestnut trees.
