École Primaire
Things about education...
And that's all folks!
First step
Universités are made up of small classes with top teaching staff. Here are the top three Universités in France: in first place Université Pierre et Marie Curie located in Paris, the second is the Université Claude Bernard Lyon I in Villeurbanne. In third place the École Normale Supérieure also in Paris. This means that 2 of the best Universités are in Paris.
Éducatif en France

Is the equivalent of kindergarten in France. The children that attend École Maternelle are ages of 2 - 6 years old. There are 3 groups: Petite section, moyenne section and the grande section. They can have 10 - 60 pupils. The children who attend École Maternelle learn reading, writing, numeracy and sometimes a foreign language.
École Primaire is the same as Primary School. The students are aged from 6 - 11 years old. They are at École Primaire for 28 hours a week. They go on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday morning. Saturday afternoon, Sunday and Wednesday they do not attend École Primaire. Their holidays are in July and August when it is Summer. There are 5 levels called: CP, CE1, CE2, CM1, and CM2. The children study French (as we do English), literacy, numeracy and a foreign language; normally English.
Collège is most known to us as 'Middle School'. The pupils are aged 11 - 15. There are 4 levels, for us they would be year 6 to year 9. The levels are called: la sixième, la cinquième, la quatrième and la troisième. They study French (as we study English), maths, history, technical education, civic education, physical education, art, music, some science and a foreign language.
Lycée is the equivalent of what we call 'High School'. Students are aged 15 - 18 years old. There are three levels known to us as year 10 to year 12.
step in
School starts at 8am in the morning and finishes as 5pm. That's a long day of 9 hours! We only study for 6 and a half hours or 7 hours in all. Instead of a 50 minute lunch break they get 90 minutes. This is probably fair since they study for 2 whole more hours than us. They only have a 2 month holiday from July to August. This is when they have summer, unlike us, in December and January. They do not wear a uniform.
Answers that are the
same for all questions
this way
Question 2
What is the difference between the State system in France compared to the Private System?
There are many schools in France, 85% being public. The other 15% are private schools mostly located in the Western and Eastern regions. They are generally religious schools, largely Catholic.
20% of high school students attend private schools.
Question 3
What is the Baccalauréat?
The Baccalauréat is a college degree of which students must pass if they want to get into higher education. (In other words this means they would pass and go to Université to study for a job).

Question 4
Write a comparison between the French school system and the Australian school system. Which system do you prefer and why? Draw a table or Venn diagram to show the differences between the two systems.
French System
Punishments on a Wednesday
Don't go to school on Wednesday
Have surprise tests
They don't have to wear a uniform
Have a much longer day
Study English as a second language
Get given a big meal (as if dinner) for a small price
Australian System
Punishments on a Friday or Saturday (IGS)
Go to school on Wednesday
Don't have surprise tests
We have to wear a uniform (IGS)
Shorter day
Study French as a second language
Pay a fair price for a snack or just lunch (not as if dinner)
I prefer the Australian system because we don't have to spend many hours at school and we don't have surprise tests. I find that the Australian system is less work.
Venn diagram of
similarities and differences between systems
French system
Australian system
More holiday time
Same subjects
More time at school
Get given a meal for their dinner because school finishes so late
More family time
Less family time
No school on Saturday except for sport (IGS)
School on Saturday
Must pass 10/20 to get to next grade
Must do the Baccalauréat
Don't HAVE to do the Baccalauréat
Must wear uniform (IGS)
Thank you for watching my presentation on Le système éducatif en France! I hope that you enjoyed it and learned a lot about the steps in ones educational journey. Jemma Williams 7D.
Le système
Also on holidays...
La Toussaint - goes for 2 weeks Oct / Nov
Noël - goes for 2 weeks around Dec / Jan
hiver - goes for 2 weeks mid Feb
printemps or pâques - goes for 2 weeks mid April
été - goes for 2 months in July
Private Catholic schools teach religious instruction in addition to the same subjects/curriculum as the state schools. Private schools have the ability to choose their own teachers as we do in Austrailia, however the teachers are paid by the State. Therefore student fees to enter Private school are much less than in Australia.
