The school offers two streams: the French and International Streams, preparing students towards certification in the French national examination, the French Baccalaureate, or the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma.

I took the Advanced Diploma in Digital Media Design and it was very useful. Lots of practical lessons.
Thanks to Learning Point, I have successfully achieved an A2 for Additional Mathematics for the ‘O’ Levels. The notes and worksheets provided by Learning Point have been such a great help to me as the challenging questions have made me learn to think out of the box.
