All parents in the international section share a common objective: enhance their children’s lives through sharing the language and culture of one or more sections available in the school either through being mother-tongue or having lived in the country.

Whilst the school provides a framework with formal teaching, family participation is key to bringing alive the benefits of this multi-cultural environment.

Derogation results


The derogation results for 6ème are now available on the Rectorat de Paris site for candidates who live in Paris. Connect onto the site and enter your child's INE number.

Lycée Honoré de Balzac

The largest public school campus in Paris, Lycée Honoré de Balzac offers, in addition to the normal French curriculum, international sections open to students who speak fluently and write in one of the following languages: Spanish, German, English, Arabic, Portuguese or Italian. Within this dynamic, culturally enriching international environment, these students pass the French general baccalaureate, with an international mention (Option Internationale Baccalaureate).

Visiting the campus

Tours of the school and the grounds are organised once a year at our Open day. Sadly the Open day planned for Saturday 7th March 2020 was cancelled as a preventative measure for the Coronavirus.
