The International Section
Sainte Anne’s College & Lycée, Brest
Since 2009 we have welcomed over 800 students to the International Section of St Anne’s where they have experienced our unique blend of British and French curricula. For six hours a week students are immersed into an anglophone environment. Our overall aim is to instil a love of English language, literature and culture in all our students, which will then accompany them throughout their education and on into later life.

But what I will always remember from this experience is the wonderful relationships I created with my fellow students and my teachers.”
” What the OIB brought me : lots of fun, a new approach to learning in a much more relaxed and free-spirited way which ends up being surprisingly efficient and some of my best memories in high school.”
“The international section helped me a lot, thanks to its level. First, it helped me to integrate the school without passing any competition, because they were looking for OIB students. Second, for our exams, we need to write an essay, and after 3 years in the international section with Shakespeare (amongst others) you will find this very easy. If you want to integrate a business school, the international section is very useful.”
“The OIB gave me the opportunity to expand my knowledge of British culture, and to better apprehend the international world.
Now that the world is connected, whatever job you are doing, you will read, listen to, and speak in English. During these times you thank the heavens for this choice you made when you were young: subscription to the international section !”
