At every level, the students are supervised by the Pedagogical manager who works in conjunction with the educational team (school life, head teacher, nurses, etc.) in order to lead our students to the Baccalauréat and to prepare them as well as possible for the post-Baccalauréat programme that suits them.
Director of Studies for the Lycée: Mr Gilles GAYERIE
Head of teaching in the Grade 10: Mr Julien LEBOURG
Heads of teaching in Grades 11 & 12: Mrs Anne-Sophie COUSTHAM and Mr Gilles GAYERIE.
The Lycée Saint-Joseph is a general education High school. As per the recent reform of the Lycée, which lead to a new Baccalauréat as of 2021, there no longer are set groups of courses in general education but rather a selection of courses to be chosen from by each student, who can mix and match according to their tastes and ambitions.
The role of the Pedagogical managers is to accompany each student during their schooling at the Lycée Saint Joseph. They coordinate the work of the educational team (Head teacher, teachers, school life, nurses, etc.) so that the pupil can develop his or her potential in our school and gradually draw up a project for the future.
At every level, the students are monitored by the Pedagogical manager and the Head teacher. During the year, each student meets their Head teacher for two or three individual interviews following class councils.
Students are prepared for examinations on an ongoing basis with supervised homework and mock exams for both written and oral exams from Grade 11 onwards. In addition, all students can attend tutorials four evenings a week until 6.30 pm.
Speciality courses offered in Grades 11 & 12
In order to help students refine their orientation project and regularly asses what is stake, the following measures have been put in place:
Classes with a specific profile
In Grade 10, five classes have a specific profile:
During Grade 11, each student must choose three speciality courses, each one taught for 4 hours per week. Two of these courses are kept in Grade 12, for 6 hours per week each.
From the start of Grade 11, all the marks obtained by the students count towards the Baccalauréat. These will be taken into account in the final average of this examination.
In the second term, students will take the first series of joint assessments in History&Geography, LVA and LVB (first and second language).
In the third term, the second series of joint assessments in History & Geography, LVA, LVB, Science and Grade 11 Speciality Courses take place.
On reaching the final year of secondary school, students retain two of the three speciality courses they chose in Grade 11, for 6 hours per week each
Following on from the exams taken in Première (Grade 11), the students in Terminale (Grade 12) will take the third series of common evaluations for History & Geography, LVA & LVB (first & second languages) and Science.
As of the 2021 session, the general Baccalauréat is assessed in two ways:
Saint Joseph Institution is an internationally oriented establishment. We teach nine modern languages so that each student can develop their skills.
Choice of Modern Languages
Modern Languages A and/or B: English, German, Spanish, Italian, Chinese
Modern Languages C: Arabic, Korean, Spanish, Italian, Japanese
FLE (French as a Foreign Language) courses are offered to non-native students.
A specific course offered in Spanish to obtain the DELE or SIELE diploma (+2h)
Language proficiency tests allow students to validate their level at European standards (EU recognition).
During the year, in particular following class councils, each student meets his or her Head teacher and Pedagogical manager in individual interviews. For each student, a follow-up is organised so that they can find the best suited orientation and make the best suited choices for their future. The teaching teams are also available to help students in their choices on Parcoursup.
In addition, once a year, events are organised for the pupils so that they can meet students and/or professionals from different sectors, in particular:
