NCB Classes


NCB Classes

The NCB classes offer advanced English for Anglophone children (or children with English as a very strong second language) at a higher level than the students receive in their LV1 classes in their French collège.

The classes use a course of books designed using a theme-based approach to reading, writing, speaking and listening. Reasoning and critical thinking are emphasized through the many ethical and moral issues raised. Passages from literature in English, writing for specific purposes and writing exercises in different genres all form an important part of the course. The activities are student-centered and designed to build knowledge and confidence as well as capture interest.

In these respects, the NCB classes offer the same language programme as that offered to pupils studying with Aparc at Collège des Bourgognes. It should be noted, however, that the intensity of the programme is very different. Where, at Collège des Bourgognes, pupils have four hours of English per week, covering language, literature and the social sciences, the NCB classes only last for an hour and a half and only focus on the language part of the programme. This would still enable motivated pupils, however, to apply to sit the IGCSE Language paper, like pupils that have studied at Collège des Bourgognes. The IGCSE Literature paper would be more difficult as the set books are studied as part of the four hours at Bourgognes and the NCB class does not have enough time.

For students interested in applying to study for the OIB in the British International Section at Lycée Jean Rostand in Chantilly, the NCB classes, whilst they do not offer any guarantees, do offer an opportunity to prepare appropriately for the entrance test.

There are currently two school levels in each class, which lasts for an hour and a half. Homework forms an important part of the course as it allows pupils to consolidate work done in class, appropriate new skills and extend the learning process.

Classes are held in l’Ecole du Bois St Denis on Wednesday afternoons in term time:
NCB Class 1 (6ème & 5ème) - 13.15-14.45
NCB Class 2 (4ème & 3ème) – 14.45-16.15
