Lycée Condorcet Sydney: Unlocking Excellence

June 27, 2024

Located in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs, Lycée Condorcet de Sydney (LCS) stands out as a beacon of bilingual education excellence. Offering a curriculum in French and English from ages 3 to 18, LCS is a proud member of the worldwide network of French schools abroad (AEFE), embodying educational excellence "à la française".

 Since 2007, LCS has provided the globally recognized International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme. What distinguishes LCS is its academic rigour and unique Northern Hemisphere academic calendar, making it Australia's only May-session school. This schedule aligns perfectly with Northern Hemisphere university admissions, giving LCS graduates a competitive edge. Flexibility is key at LCS, welcoming mid-year entries into Year 10 to seamlessly integrate into our IB Programme. As one of the few co-educational schools in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs offering the IB Diploma Programme, LCS fosters a dynamic and inclusive learning environment.

Our dedicated faculty, continuously trained to deliver contemporary and globally relevant education, supports our commitment to academic excellence. This dedication is reflected in our students' achievements, with 98% gaining university entrance globally in 2023. Mastery of French is not required, welcoming students from all language backgrounds. 

Marcel Hennes, IB history teacher, reflects on the LCS experience: “On campus, you’ll see students stepping into class fresh off a surfboard or still buzzing from a theatre production the night before. They walk into the same classroom, perfectly equal. This embodies the IB ethos — ‘you be you’ — in a region where socioeconomic divides dissolve and global influences converge.”

As LCS continues its legacy of IB excellence, we invite students worldwide to join our vibrant community. With academic rigour, cultural diversity, and affordable excellence, LCS prepares students to excel in a connected world.
