We are delighted to announce the incredible successes of our students in the computer and digital sciences through their participation in the Concours Castor. The Concours Castor is an annual competition which takes place throughout 50 countries.
Under the supervision of a teacher, students participate either on their own or in a pair in the competition. The competition covers various aspects of computing such as information and representation, algorithmic thinking, application use, data structures, logic games, computing and society.
This year, over 520,000 participants competed throughout France and abroad in the French category, and we are happy to announce the results of our students. In all year groups, at least one pair of students came in the top 100 out of tens of thousands of participants – and special congratulations to Elliot and Noé who came a staggering 3rd out of 39,291 pairs for the Year 9 level!
Congratulations to all our students for their enthusiastic participation in the competition and a huge thank you to the teachers who supported them! Bravo !Read More
Le mardi 4 juin, nos élèves de Moyenne Section célébraient la Fête du 50 pour marquer cinquante jours passés depuis le centième jour d’école. Chasse aux nombres, activités de graphisme, jeux de société … sous le regard attentionné des élèves de CM1, convertis ce jour là en assistants, les MS ont compté et dénombré, seuls ou en groupes, tout au long de la matinée. Un beau moment d’apprentissage pour tous !Read More
Each year, thousands of pupils across the world take part in the Kangourou maths competition. The results for the Kangourou 2018 are in and we could not be more proud of our pupils’ achievements!
All pupils from Year 4 to Year 10 took part in the competition, and, of those, 25% were ranked amongst the top 5% worldwide.
Congratulations to all for participating, and a special congratulations to Elliot (Year 6), ranked #1 out of 32,152 in his year group!
Our primary maths teaching method was first imagined by Lolita Bercoff (Deputy Head – Paris) 18 years ago. Current Head of School, Pauline Prévot, joined her in developing this programme shortly afterwards. Since then, our method has never ceased to evolve and adapt based on the feedback of pupils and teachers in London, Paris and Lille.
This brief documentary, filmed in Paris in Year 5 and 6 classrooms, highlights how our pupils develop an in-depth understanding of mathematical concepts and acquire research and reasoning skills through hands-on manipulation.
