School holidays

he French Ministry of National Education mandates the school year’s start date and the dates of school holidays.
The school year ends in early July. The specific date is communicated to families via the official school newsletter.


Les repas sont entièrement préparés sur place chaque jour,
avec des produits biologiques et frais livrés plusieurs fois par semaine.

Les menus sont adaptés pour les élèves qui suivent un régime spécifique, sur la base d’un certificat médical pour les allergies et intolérances. D’autres adaptations sont prises en compte également (végétariens, etc.).

School rules

At the time of enrolment, families receive a handbook describing school guidelines. A copy can also be requested from the front desk.
Starting in 9th grade, students must sign a social contract at the beginning of the school year to affirm that they will respect these guidelines.
Electronic devices such as mobile phones may not be used on school grounds. This rule applies to students, parents, and teachers. Students in all grade levels must give their mobile phones to the teacher at the start of the school day; phones are returned at the end of the day.


A space reserved for bicycles and mopeds is located near the school’s lower entrance gate.
A car park for school drop-off and pick-up can be accessed through the school’s upper entrance gate (at 21 route de Bièvres).
The lower car park (at 62 rue de Paris) may only be used by school staff or people with reduced mobility

Public transport

Do you live somewhere between Paris and Verrières-le-Buisson?
The nearest light-rail station is IGNY (RER C). The 294 bus line serves this station and the school (~10 min trip). The Amblainvilliers stop is located immediately opposite the school’s lower entrance.
From Paris, the school can be reached via this same line (294): the bus leaves from Porte de Châtillon, and its last stop is IGNY RER. Get off at the Croix Pasquier stop and walk straight along rue de Paris to reach the school’s lower entrance.
Every morning during the school year, a special stop is made in front of the school by a bus (196) that leaves ANTONY-RER at 8.13 am and that travels through the centre of Verrières-le-Buisson. Bus 196 also makes a special stop at the end of the school day—at 3.55 pm at the Amblainvilliers station in front of the school.

Vallée de Chevreuse

The school runs a minibus service for students who live between the school and Saint-Rémy-les-Chevreuse; it passes through Gif-sur-Yvette, Gometz, Orsay, Villebon, and Palaiseau. Monday through Friday, the bus departs from the Saint-Rémy-les-Chevreuse RER B station at 7.25 am for an 8.35 am arrival at the school. In the afternoon, the bus leaves the school at 4 pm and arrives at the Saint-Rémy-les-Chevreuse RER B station around 5.10 pm

Afterschool care

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 3.45 pm to 6.45 pm
Wednesday from 1.30 pm to 6.30 pm
Our youngest students have their own afterschool groups (one for preschoolers/pre-kindergarteners, one for kids of mixed ages). For these groups, care is available until 5.45 pm on all school days except Wednesday.
Care may be available as late as 6.45 pm depending on the number of children enrolled. A programme on Wednesday afternoons may also be put in place if there is enough demand.
