UAE French Schools

French schools in the UAE follow the French baccalauréat, an academic qualification which French students take at the end of high school. The bac is the main diploma required to pursue university studies in France. The baccalureate confirms a rounded secondary education. Like the international baccalaureate it differs from English A-levels in that it cannot be obtained in single subjects.

French schools in the UAE, especially those in Dubai, tend to be rated very highly.

Lycée Francais International Georges Pompidou Nursery School, Oud Metha

The story of the Lycée Français International Georges Pompidou Ecole Maternelle [LFIGP-EM] is almost completely aligned with the appointment of the school’s current Principal (La Directrice) Saadia Hachid. Appointed in September 2013, in just one year she oversaw the transformation from KHDA “Good” to “Outstanding” school status, the creation of a dedicated Maternelle school focused exclusively on educating young children between 3 and 6 years of age (Petite Section de maternelle (PS), Moyenne Section (MS) de maternelle, Grande Section (GS) de maternelle) and the redevelopment and renewal of the old school to create a genuinely, child-focused, [...]

Lycée Francais International Georges Pompidou, Dubai Academic City, Al Ruwayyah

KHDA Outstanding, with fees around half those of its competing equivalent Tier 1 English and IB peers, Lycée Francais International Georges Pompidou (LFIGP) is a school that is hard to find fault with. The parent school, based in Sharjah, and established in 1973, it should be noted, is equally as impressive.

In Dubai, LFIGP provision is split between what are, to all intents and purposes, two campuses. The Oud Metha school, offers an FS1-2 Maternelle education to children between the ages of 3 and 6 years, and acts as the slipstream to the main Primary and Secondary school in Dubai Academic City. The DAC campus/school completes each childs education, offering all-through [...]

Lycée Libanais Francophone Privé-Dubai, Al Muhaisnah 4

Founded in 2003, the Lycée Libanais Francophone Privé (LLFP) was originally created to meet the needs of the Lebanese and Francophone community established in the Gulf. Today, whilst remaining a fundamentally Franco-Lebanese school, LLFP welcomes a broad range of nationalities between KG and Year 12 for its core French syllabus culminating in the General Baccalauréat, the French system’s equivalent to UK A’ Levels and the International Baccalaureate Diploma [IB DP]. Since 2009, the school has shared extremely close educational, academic and administrative inks with the prestigious Collège Notre Dame de Jamhour Lebanon. It remains resolutely a not-for-profit.

Lycée Français Jean Mermoz, Business Bay, Al Quoz

Updated December 2016

Prospective parents should note that Lycée Français Jean Mermoz is due to open in September 2017.

Jean Mermoz (9 December 1901 – 7 December 1936) was a French Aviator, explorer and adventurer whose association with French schools worldwide stems, in part, from help that he received from a teacher as a young man of 19 to achieve his ambitions to fly. A French (and Argentine) hero, he was known as a pioneer in aviation, in particular in flying unexplored routes between South America and Africa, losing his life eventually in a plane crash over the Atlantic from which neither his body, nor the plane were ever recovered.

His courage, ambition and [...]
