Teachers who want to keep very average teaching standards and have an easy life. Bullying and bad language common

4 of the 5 years my teenagers have attended Mougins school were acceptable to poor. This current year we have seen big improvement. Under new management the school should become the amazing 5 star school it should be.

The Mougins School is an amazing place for kids to spend their high school years. If student supply themselves, they will learn and thrive here. Don’t listen to the negative reviews, these people are by and large malcontents who have nothing else to do with their time than put down a fine institution.

I moved here two years ago from the US with my husband and daughter who has since enjoyed two years of happiness in a safe and nurturing environment. She is excited for the next two years of A-levels with smart and interesting friends from all over the world. We are quite fortunate. Our new headmaster has done a stellar job in his first year. Backed by a teaching career in history and drama, followed by several years at the administrative level at international schools, he has an open door policy that both my husband and I have exercised and, as a result, witnessed positive outcomes. Coming from the US where sports are well integrated into the schools, I was surprised by the lack of non-football (soccer) programs. But In France this is not atypical. French families enroll their kids in the extensive village programs. It’s a great way for students to integrate into French society and practice the language. Since my daughter is more reserved and prefers English, I proposed to the school that I start a girls badminton team. With the full support of the administration, the team is up and running and will have their first competition with the nearby international schools next week. Such fun! When we first toured the school a few years ago, I asked a student who happened to be passing by, what he liked most about the school. He responded, “The teachers care and the bathrooms are clean.” How true!

À small school with a culture of care and respect amongst teachers and children! Confident, kind and open Kidsfotogen across all age groups! There is still space to further improve but new head and management board have already brought much progress and continue pursuing their ambitious goals! Towards GCSEs and A-Levels limited subject choice due to its small size (500 students from reception to Form13.

Don't send your child there if you are looking for A/AS level. Rigged system and academically low. Certain subjects are on a low level like Humanities (History, Geography). Core subjects are weak (English/Maths). Favoritism to certain students mainly kids of staff. Bullying rife. not value of money. Focusing on making money out of the parents without any good services in exchange. Inexperienced Head and weak management. Some teachers unqualified and need to go but they don't. After Brexit, difficulties surrounding the school. Globeducate the owner of all schools in the region of Cote D'Azur.

School with huge potential but badly managed. Inexperienced Head and weak management team. Bullying rife. Quality education is not offered, neither is value for money.

It is a school with many issues although it looks promising from outside. In reality, it has a PTA head who has been there since four years just with the approval of limited number of school parents and certain group of teachers. Favoritism is the main address of the school. Don't depend on a fair treatment or organized system available. Not recommended in the cote D'azur (South of France). Headmaster with no experience and only cares to achieve Glodeducate Financial targets.

PTA of that school is really Rotten, favoritism to certain students. Academically is low. Sports are on low level. Some teachers are not qualified and needs training. Over-employment and teachers contracts have to be reviewed. Most of students leave after GCSEs. If you are looking for a British system, don't search in the south of France, either you go directly to UK or swap to the US system from Form 9. School marketing only for social activities and facilities. Core subjects are very weak.

One of the worst in the South of France, still working with the old system of the retired headmaster. Five headmasters left the school before being sold. All buildings are rented and not owned or fire alarm prepared by the new owner Globeducate. Biased system favor of sons and daughters of the teachers. Be prepared to pay euros 20,000/student a year and another tutoring fees in case your son/daughter needs help. Poor management. Disorganized staff and rotten PTA. Not recommended if you are moving to the Cote D'Azur.

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.
