Mougins School follows the British curriculum and offers an advanced international program to students of 3-18 years of age. The School’s way of life is characterized by caring, tolerance, security, praise, and high expectations. We believe that pupils learn best when they are encouraged and valued, trusted, and respected. On completion of their (I)GCSE, AS and A-Level examinations, students gain worldwide entry into further education in prestigious universities.
Situated in Mougins, within the high technology park of Sophia Antipolis since 1987 (established in 1964), the purpose-built campus comprises six state-of-the-art buildings as well as sports areas, recreational areas, and areas of quiet contemplation. The campus houses not only well-equipped classrooms but four science laboratories, two IT suites, two art studios, two music studios, a superb gymnasium, an examinations room, dedicated performing arts and music building, and a library containing 11,000 volumes as well as computers for research, overseen by a librarian. A dining room provides freshly cooked food daily. These facilities ensure that, together with a high academic standard, the students’ physical and cultural development is encouraged and nurtured.
Recognizing that every student has potential, Mougins School offers a wide range of activities beyond academia. Sport, Music, Art, and Theatre are an integral part of the curriculum. These subjects encourage self-confidence, teamwork, originality, and creativity, all characteristics which contribute to a well-rounded adult. The melting pot of over forty nationalities also plays an important role in the education of our students, breaking down barriers, teaching respect and tolerance to a generation that will shape the world to come. The student body, led by the Student Council, regularly participates in fund-raising challenges, donating to numerous worthy causes. An active Parent Teacher Association assists staff and students in the organization of activities and social events which enhance the lives of all concerned. Pastoral care is readily available for new families in assisting with the hurdles of relocation.
The Foundation Stage is for 3 to 4-year-olds. Children in the first year (Early Years) attend school for mornings only. In the second year (Reception) children attend all day. These classes both have a teacher and teaching assistant. From Forms 1 to 11 the program is divided into Key Stages and students follow the UK National Curriculum to a very large extent.
