Welcome to the Secondary

Pupils normally enter the secondary school following the successful completion of the European School’s primary course or an equivalent course duly certified by a school of a Member state or another officially recognised school.

The seven-year secondary level consists of three cycles. The observatory cycle (years 1-3), the pre-orientation cycle (year 4-5) and the orientation cycle (year 6-7)

The European Baccalaureate certifies, at the end of secondary year 7, the completion of studies in the European Schools and accredited European schools. Only students who have received European schooling and education in secondary years 6 and 7 in either a European School or a school that has been expressly accredited by the Board of Governors are allowed to enter for the European Baccalaureate.

The certificate awarded to students who have passed the European Baccalaureate examination is recognised in all EU countries and in a number of other countries. European Baccalaureate-holders enjoy in their respective countries the same rights and benefits as holders of the diploma or certificate awarded at the end of secondary education in those countries. They also have the same rights as nationals with equivalent qualifications when seeking admission to universities or higher education institutions in all EU countries.

The future of our pupils is important to us!
