The International Study Centre, located in Ballans, Charente-Maritime, opens up new opportunities for English-speaking young people wishing to take GCSE or A-Level exams here in France with the guidance of experienced teachers following a UK curriculum.

Students can study just one subject to supplement their French schooling or have the opportunity to take a programme of study with us. Every student will have a clear learning plan with targets to achieve and are well supported through every stage of their student-centred learning.

We enable students who are not confident enough with their French language skills to achieve their potential at BAC, to study for, and take their IGCSE exams here in France, opening up new opportunities for further study at universities all over the world, with the qualifications being internationally recognised.


The qualifications are accreditted by Edexcel and the exams are taken at the test centre in the Dordogne.
