A message from our principal

Dear parents,

Let us hope that 2021-2022 will be the year of the renewal for South Africa and le Lycée Français du Cap. We welcome over 330 students from all over the world in a French speaking environment, resting on the quality of the French curriculum, the values of South Africa, and mastery of the English language. We are always putting diversity, tolerance and broad mind above all.

Our health protocol was collectively established and validated by our various authorities. It has then been deployed by the energy of our technical, administrative, teaching and management teams to ensure that everyone was safe to study in our school.

We are experiencing this new school year in a health situation which is complex but improving in many ways. The entire teams of the school are mobilised to take up challenges and help students consolidate their achievements, succeed in their schooling and strengthen the social ties that unite them.

Among our short-term goals, we intend to have our school validated as an official “centre d’examen”, which would allow our students to take all French exams in our premises, without having to fly to Johannesburg. We are also seeking an official validation of “section international britannique” in CP and 6ème, in order to make it clear that when you choose our school for your children, you are allowing them to reach a high level of mastery of the French language, while keeping high standards for English as well. Not “either, or”! Always “both”!

I would like to wish everyone an excellent school year.

All the best wishes for a successful school year to each student at le Lycée Français du Cap.

Merci à tous pour votre confiance,
