I am looking for parents who have moved their children from the French system to the English one or vice-versa.
I have one daughter at the French Lycee in the equivalent of year 10, and one son in year 6 at Wix bilingual.
I have received the secondary school application outcome for him and he would hopefully get a place at Bolingbroke Academy in year 7. From what I have read, it may suit him better than the French Lycee as he is quite selective (he's doing great when he has to think but struggles with learning by heart). The music tuition would also be a plus for him while arts are almost inexistent at the French Lycee.
Giving my financial situation although she has a bursary, I was thinking about moving my daughter from the French Lycee to Bolingbroke. I understood that September 2021 may not be the best option as she would have missed the first year of GCSE (she only has English literature, history and geography currently being prepared for GCSE at the Lycee, everything else is in French), but was wondering if it may work with a bit of extra help for the other topics.
If anyone has experienced moving from one system to the other, please let me know about your experience, advantages and inconvenient
. Feel free to reply or PM me.
