Bilingual Primary School

Welcome to the Le  Petit Cours du Rocher

 located at 230 rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré, 75008 Paris. Our classrooms cater to students from Cours Préparatoire (CP), starting at 6 years old, all the way up to Cours Moyen (CM2). Each grade level is represented by a single class, ensuring a focused and personalized learning experience for every student.

Learning Areas:

At our bilingual  elementary school, we follow a curriculum that blends the goals of the French National Education system and the British Curriculum. It is organized into five distinct learning areas, which include:
  • Mobilizing language in all its dimensions, encompassing communication, language, and literacy.

  • Acting, expressing oneself, and understanding through physical activity, known as physical development.

  • Acting, expressing oneself, and understanding through artistic activities, known as creative development.

  • Building the initial tools necessary to structure one's thinking, known as mathematical development.

  • Exploring the world around us, known as knowledge and understanding of the world.


Our Primary School pedagogical project is a direct and logical continuation of our successful Maternelle program since 1953.

Le Petit Cours du Rocher offers a bilingual and traditional curriculum to "nurture the mind, hand, and heart" of each student. We prioritize the well-being of both the students and teachers.

English instruction is solely provided by native English-speaking teachers. English is not taught as a separate subject, but as a medium of instruction in other subjects. Students are evaluated in both French and English while maintaining a nurturing environment.

Our goal is to develop bilingualism in our students, allowing them to express themselves orally and in writing with ease in both languages. By the end of CM2, students will have achieved a level of English proficiency that will allow them to use the language with ease.
