The change of direction is good for the school! Nestled in a green setting, the school brings a lot to our children both academically and socially. We highly recommend it!

Had our children there for over 10 years and were very happy, until the last year and a half, which has been a disaster. Many key members of staff who made the school outstanding left. Leadership team now is weak and ineffective. In 10 years, we never saw staff leave mid-term or mid-year, since September 2020 it has become a regular occurrence. Every day makes a difference in the education of children and it is not right to say, ‘give us time’, our children don’t deserve this. The school was excellent and it is heartbreaking to see it go from bad to worse. The group who bought it need to do something about it, and quick.

Beautiful campus, great new leadership with ambition and energy, on a steep upward curve in professionalism. Rome has not been build in one day but the school is clearly moving into the right direction. Hope the investor will continue to support the new leadership. Kids in Primary and Middle School are very well balanced, not busy with materialism but really supportive to one another. Diversity is allowed and encouraged! They learn well for the pleasure of learning! Most teachers do not just do their job but truly care about their students. In upper school, there is still room for improvement, but new application guidance and career counselling are going into the right direction. Strongly recommend to Primary and Middle School Kids... and until they will tackle upper school, with the help of the new leadership, they'll be great! (Ref to former posts: The fact that teachers leave is normal school business and very frustrating to all. I trust the school finding a new ICT teacher quickly!)

School is poorly managed with a lot of attention to public relations issues and not focusing on teaching at all. The quality of English teachers is appalling, unacceptable for a British school. ICT & computer science teacher left overnight and hasn't been replaced greatly damaging all the students who have to take their GCSEs exams. The new group owners of the school are only interested in making money. Note that the current owners are the same who owns (ICS, ISN & Mougins) all in the Cote D'Azur (French Riviera).

Not a proper school, English level is a disaster, French level is very low. Academically far behind and expensive to its level. Teachers leave in the middle of the course and lots of students are screwed. Think carefully before moving there.

Academically is very poor, quality of teachers especially english level is very low. No follow up with parents except when you get surprised by reports at the end of each semester. Think 100 times before joining given the exit of England from Europe.

Totally agree with everything said by Jessy, Louise and Regis. The current management team is very weak, especially in primary. Too much focus on 'fun' like sports and thrive, with zero being done about disruptive behaviour, weak academic levels and poor quality teachers. The hours have been made longer, which we fully supported, but it hasn't made any difference because the education being given is still poor. The deputy head leaving in 2020 was a huge loss that is still being felt today. Resting on the laurels of the campus, but even that seems to be looking jaded. We had hoped that the takeover by a schools group would make it improve; instead, it has got worse. They need to get in there and sort it out.

Beautiful campus in the south of France but with lots of problems. Potentially could be better but this is not the case. Overpriced to your expectations. Low quality of English teachers although it is a British school. Not recommended for many reasons: poorly managed, unorganized, poor level of languages, unclear roles of PTA for some parents and only doing things for their own interest. Technology not up to the level of nowadays especially accessing to the internet for students, copying somehow the International School of Monaco (ISM), the group who bought the school focusing on making money rather than academics. Do not get impressed by the facility and parents coffee mornings as this will not help your child. Lost a deputy head and another head of school with excellent capabilities given all of the above mentioned.

A school with too many problems, weak management and unclear roles of PTA people (who are parents at school acting as if they are the head or director of the school, only working for their own interests). Think twice before taking your child there, don't get impressed by the facilities given that it is in the south of France (Cote D'Azur), academics on a low level not up to the expectations especially languages (English & French), teachers quality is an issue. Biased system and rigged towards sons and daughters of school staff. Most of teachers did not get any training since years or how to deal with children and motivate them.

The school has management issues and in one year they changed 4 headmasters. Until the school were sold to Globeducate which only focuses on financial matters and how to achieve the most profits than academic benefits for the students. There is also a problem of the Brexit, so if you are planning to move to the south of France, don't choose to join an English school in France. Another thing, system inside is mainly rigged as it is in favor of the sons and daughters of the school stuff. No fairness and biased. The current head of the school in too young to handle such position means not enough experience to manage. Racism and bullying matters are existing in that school, unfortunately in today's world which still is a fact undeniably.

I attended Mougins School from 4 till 15 (I'm now turning 30). I absolutely loved my experience there; it genuinely felt like a family. Independent thought was always encouraged, the environment was incredibly nurturing, and it was set in a really beautiful location. I will always have incredibly fond memories of my time at Mougins.
