How to Apply

We suggest that you start collecting the various documents to avoid a last-minute panic. Once you start an
application, we can see it in our data base and so we are informed that you are applying. This will allow us to
contact you with important information (or to remind you gently about deadlines...)

We do NOT accept paper documents or incomplete dossiers. All applications must go through Applications
Online via our website http://sectioninternationale.org/college-applications/

Once you press APPLY NOW, you will be asked to create/log into an account:

    •   If this is the first time you are applying through Applications Online, you will need to enter a valid
        email and password. You will receive an email to validate the account. Once you have validated the
        account, you can start to fill in the details required in the Application Form.
    •   If you have already used Applications Online, you should use the same account and the option
        “Add a Child”. Please note that you need to “Add a Child” even if you created the account for the
        child currently in CM2...It will be treated as a new application for a change of programme.
    •   You do not have to finish the application in one go, but we do urge you to use “SAVE” at the end of
        each page to avoid having to start again...
    •   Once you have filled in the personal details, you can start uploading your documents.

ALL documents must be uploaded in PDF FORMAT

Documents are assessed on merit, not the order of arrival, so we urge you to make sure that your child’s
dossier is complete before submitting, as you will be unable to change it or add documents later.

        exported and uploaded. You are NOT required to print, sign, scan and upload. The letter should
        explain family dynamics, past schooling, etc. Please remember that the team of teachers at the
        College level do not know your child so any important information you wish to pass on should be
        included here.
    •   School reports for the previous school year: you will need to upload the reports for CM1 (or
        equivalent). Please compile ONE PDF document for the two or three reports you have for the
        school year 2018-2019.
    •   School reports for the current school year: depending on the school your child is currently
        attending, you may receive this as late as the end of January 2020. Please wait for this report
        before submitting, as we can only assess complete dossiers.
    •   Handwritten piece of work: Please follow your child’s class work and homework closely in order to
        be able to submit a piece of work reflecting your child’s level. This piece of work could be a book
        report, creative writing, a series of diary entries, etc. Please do not submit spelling or grammar
        exercises. We are looking to assess their level of vocabulary, grammar, sentence structure, general
        presentation and punctuation. You may submit several pieces of work, but only ONE PDF
        document.
    •   CNED documents: this concerns children who are not currently attending a school which is officially
        recognised by the French ministry of Education and applies to children usually abroad.
    •   Other documents you may find relevant: this may concern previous exams or certificates. Also,
        previous years of school reports (English-speaking school if already moved back, or French school
        before moving abroad, ...)

English Teacher Recommendation for Section Internationale, La Celle St Cloud-Noisy le Roi

Please ask your child’s current English Teacher to submit this recommendation form before the deadline,
ideally by PDF/email. If this is your child’s first year with the teacher, do not request this form too early, in
order to allow the teacher to get to know your child and his/her level.

This document is to be sent directly by the teacher to the Admissions Office
(admissions@sectioninternationale.org) and so does not delay the submission of your application.

In order to comply with current GDPR rules, we encourage you to request this document from your English
teacher with the following text, putting the Admissions Office on copy of the email:

We, the parents of Harry Potter (the name of your child), hereby authorise Mr or Mrs XXXX (name of
teacher) to fill in the College teacher recommendation with details concerning the academic record of our
child Harry Potter (the name of your child).

We authorise Mr or Mrs XXXX (name of the teacher) to send this personal recommendation to the
Admissions Office, Section Internationale, 30 Avenue de Circourt, 78170 La Celle St Cloud at the following
email address "admissions@sectioninternationale.org”.

We authorise the Admissions Office to share the details of this recommendation with the teachers of the
College Section Internationale programmes, the Head of the school requested (College Pasteur or College de
la Quintinye) as well as, if required, the Inspection Académique during the assessment of your child’s dossier
during the Commission Collège.
COLLEGE PROGRAMMES 2020-2021 - Section Internationale
Application and Testing Fees
Once you submit your full application via Applications Online, you will be required to pay a non-refundable
application fee of 105 Euros. This is to be paid online using a credit card (Visa or Mastecard). These costs
are NOT included in the annual school fees (if currently a pupil in Section Internationale).

Once your child’s dossier has been assessed and if he/she is invited to test on 28th February 2020 (6ème)
or 18th March 2020 (other levels), you will be required to pay the non-refundable testing fees of 35 Euros
(official testing date). This should be paid in advance by bank transfer to the following bank account under
the reference “Child’s name Testing 2020”. A PDF screen shot of the bank transfer is to be sent to
admissions@sectioninternationale.org.

Please note that if your child is unable to test at the official testing dates, he/she would be subject to an
individual test which will be billed at 100 Euros.

If you are not currently in France, your child may sit the test at a distance, with the help of his/her current
school. Please refer to the distance testing procedure on our website for further details. The distance tests
cannot take place before the official testing date, but we do encourage families to have their children sit their
distance tests as close as possible to the official dates, whenever possible.

Please note that these distance tests are billed at 100 Euros.

Timing of the Application Process

Once your child has sat the test, the papers will be marked and assessed by the team of College teachers.
During the Commission with the heads of the two colleges, which will take place during the month of March
2020, each dossier will be examined, taking into account:
    • The French academic reports - please note that the Section Internationale is an option for children
        who are coping well with the French curriculum.
    • The English written and oral test results
    • The English Teacher Recommendation

Results should be available by mid- April 2020 at the latest.
THE NEXT STEPS IF YOUR CHILD IS ADMISSIBLE TO SECTION INTERNATIONALE
College Pasteur – 6ème

    •   If your child is currently attending Pasteur Primary School in the Integrated programme and you live
        in La Celle Saint Cloud, you will be required to fill in the AFFELNET* document which will be
        distributed by Pasteur Primary School. You should include the “certificate d’admissibilité” issued
        ONCE your child’s place is confirmed.
    •   If your child is currently attending Pasteur Primary School with a “dérogation”, you will be required
        to fill in AFFELNET* and request a “dérogation” to attend College Pasteur. You will receive details of
        how to do this from Pasteur Primary School. You are required to fill in the 2nd page of the AFFELNET
        document and add the necessary supporting document (certificate d’admissibilité) which will be
        issued by the Section Internationale ONCE your child’s place is confirmed.

        AFFELNET or request a “dérogation”. Please contact your child’s local primary school (if living in
        France) for further details. We request that you contact us once you have found your new French
        address. If you are returning to a previous address in the area, please refer to the different cases
        above. We do request however that you inform us EARLY ON in the Admissions process whether this
        address will be outside the Yvelines (78), such as Les Hauts-de-Seine (Rueil Malmaison, Vaucresson,
        Garches, Saint Cloud...).

College de la Quintinye – 6ème

        document (certificate d’admissibilité) which will be issued by the Section Internationale ONCE your
        child’s place is confirmed.
    •   If you do not currently live in the area or in France, you are not automatically required to fill in
        AFFELNET or request a “derogation”. Please contact your child’s local primary school (if living in
        France) for further details. We request that you contact us once you have found your new French
        address. If you are returning to a previous address in the area, please refer to the different cases
        above. We do request however that you inform us EARLY ON in the Admissions process whether this
        address will be outside the Yvelines (78), such as Les Hauts-de-Seine (Rueil Malmaison, Vaucresson,

*AFFELNET – Affectation des Élèves par le NET – for more information, please visit the official website for the
Académie de Versailles. This should be updated for 2020, but the information except dates is still accurate.
                 http://www.ac-versailles.fr/cid105052/l-entree-orientation-college.html

For other college levels, places are awarded depending on available places in the colleges and are not
subject to “dérogations” via AFFELNET. However, there is still a catchment area to respect when possible.
As above, we do request however that you inform us EARLY ON in the Admissions process whether this
address will be outside the Yvelines (78), such as Les Hauts-de-Seine (Rueil Malmaison, Vaucresson,
Garches, Saint Cloud...).
Écoles Privées hors Contrat (France)

If your child is currently attending a school “privée hors contrat” in France, he/she will have to sit the tests of
the Académie de Versailles before being able to confirm the place in one of the two colleges. Examples are
Montessori schools.

You should contact your local college (collège de secteur) in order to sit the tests required after having
registered your child before the deadline. Once you receive the official confirmation from the Académie de
Versailles, you should send a scanned copy Admissions at admissions@sectioninternationale.org.

Please visit the official websites for the Académie de Versailles or further details. These websites will be
updated with the dates in 2020 but they do not vary much from year to year.

                                         Yvelines DSDEN 78:
http://www.ac-versailles.fr/dsden78/cid108499/admission-dans-enseignement-public.html

                                       Hauts-de-Seine DSDEN 92:
                http://www.ac-versailles.fr/dsden92/cid109422/enseignement-prive.html

We also recommend that you contact the head of your child’s current school as they are well aware of the
procedure to follow to enter the French public school system as well as the deadlines.

If you are currently living in the Hauts-de-Seine, your child is not required to sit a test, but you must fill in a
dossier for DSDEN 92. For further information, please visit their website.

                http://www.ac-versailles.fr/dsden92/cid109422/enseignement-prive.html

Écoles Privées hors Contrat (outside France)

If your child is currently attending a school “privée hors contrat” outside France, he/she will have to sit French
and Maths tests of the Académie de Versailles before being able to confirm the place in one of the two
colleges. This would be the case if your child attends a school which is not recognised by the French Ministry
of Education (AEFE) and is not following a parallel official CNED (or equivalent) programme.

These tests can be organised by Section Internationale, AFTER your child is confirmed admissible for the
Section Internationale programme (in English). Please consult the distance testing procedure on our website
for more information. It is important to note that these tests are only valid for an entry into one of our two
colleges.

We realise that this may all seem a little overwhelming; please do not hesitate to contact us.
