Moving can be difficult, especially when moving a family with children overseas, but Lodgis is here to help, not only with your move to Bordeaux, but also with your search for the perfect school to give your children a truly bilingual and international education. Paris isn’t the only place to find an international school in France! So, here are our top five bilingual and international schools in the Bordeaux area!
1. Assomption Sainte Clotilde Bordeaux
Assomption Sainte Clotilde Bordeaux is a great option for you and your family because it includes a primary / elementary school, a collège (middle school), and a lycée (high / secondary school) so that your child or children can stay in the same school system throughout their education. Assomption Sainte Clotilde uses the Cambridge English method to teach English in their bilingual course curriculum and focuses on oral and written comprehension and expression while providing a consistent correspondence with an English school for their students and even celebrating anglophone holidays such as Harvest and Thanksgiving with fun and educational activities.

Next we have the Bordeaux International School, which is a private school with a preschool, a primary / elementary school, a collège (middle school), and a lycée (high / secondary school) that opened its doors in 1987 and aims to equip their students (aged 3 years old to 18 years old) with a level of fluency in at least two languages (generally French and English) to encourage face to face interaction with pupils of different nationalities and thus promote an appreciation of diverse cultures. Luckily this international school accepts new students all throughout the academic year for those who are moving to Bordeaux at any point. BIS prepares its students for the British end of year exams and also gives the option for students to prepare for an American high school diploma and SATs, while, of course, preparing them for the French end of year exam, the baccalauréat.
