ASEICA, the "Association pour le soutien de l’Enseignement International sur la Côte d’Azur", has worked with the French state education system for more than 30 years, promoting high quality, bilingual education for thousands of children.
The demand for places is high and entry is based on tests carried out each year. Children should have a good level of English and French, particularly in the older classes.
The test procedure is common to both Sartoux and Trois Collines Mougins schools. Tests and results are overseen by the Inspection Académique.
A proof of residency is required by the Inspection Académique and will be checked when applying for the entrance test.
The tests are carried out in both languages, with an increasing expectation of writing and reading ability through the age groups. An average of the two language scores gives the marks from which a list is created.
Tests results: The Inspection Académique will send results directly to families by email. Children are accepted starting from the best mark according to the number of places available. A waiting list is also kept with these places being allocated at the end of August/beginning of September when final numbers are known.
Once you receive the results, it is mandatory to confirm online, complete registration with the school and townhall, as well as with ASEICA, the International Anglophone Section.
The majority of children admitted for the tests are in the CP level (year 2, grade 1). From year to year places can become available at other levels. This is dependent on pupils leaving the program.
