APARC

The aims of the Association

The Anglophone Parents' Association in the Region of Chantilly (APARC) was founded in 1982 to bring together families in the Chantilly area who speak English as a mother tongue or as a cultural language. Its main objective was to set up special English language sections for English-speaking children in the schools in Chantilly, with a view to enabling the children of members to achieve a standard of English as near as possible to that of children in English-speaking countries.

APARC's primary function is to organise classes in English, with the goal of helping children to achieve or maintain a level of English as near as possible to that of their peers in English-speaking countries. Three hours of English are held on Wednesdays in Kindergarten and Primary classes (ages 5 to 11), and at age 11, APARC children can enter the state secondary school in Chantilly, where four hours of English are integrated into the timetable specially for them. The APARC education continues into the Lycee with the students entering the International Section at the Lycee Jean Rostand. Here, they have the possibility of taking the IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) in English language and literature at the end of 2nde. In 1ère and Terminale they begin to prepare for the Option International Baccalaureat (OIB) which forms part of the General Baccalaureat – and is of an equivalent level to the British A-level. APARC is a recognized exam centre both for the IGCSE and the Cambridge First Certificate (for local non-English-speaking pupils).

APARC

Organisation of the Association

APARC is run by a committee including a president, a treasurer and three co-ordinators, one for Primary/Kindergarten, one for Collège and one for Lycée. The role of the co-ordinators is to liaise between the parents and the teaching staff, and between the parents and the committee. All queries concerning the classes should be addressed to the appropriate co-ordinator. There are also sub-committees to deal with the social events, the newsletter and the billing of school fees.

APARC Committee

Most of you will know our wonderful teachers, assistants and librarians, who make APARC so successful, from Kindergarten to the Lycée. But did you also know that, alongside that dedicated teaching team, administrative and logistical support is provided by an elected Committee of eleven members, who work on a 100% voluntary basis?

APARC

History of APARC

For more than a hundred years, the Chantilly region has been home to a high concentration of English-speaking families living temporarily or permanently in France. In 1982, APARC was founded to bring these families together and provide for the special educational needs of their children. Today, APARC members - over 150 families - come from all parts of the globe, Great Britain and the United States being the most strongly represented.

IGCSE exams

Every year, at the Lycée Jean Rostand in Chantilly, our 2nde students sit their IGCSEs. So what are IGCSEs and why do our students sit them?

What are IGCSEs?

IGCSEs (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) are exams equivalent to those that students in England and Wales take at the age of 16. The exams are graded from A* (the highest) through to U (ungraded) with the pass mark being a Grade D. If a student passes at Grade C or above they are considered to read, write and speak at a level equivalent to someone educated in the UK. IGCSEs can be taken in any subject, but at the Lycée Jean Rostand we offer First Language English and English Literature. Various examining bodies in the UK run the IGCSEs – ours are organised by Cambridge, which has been an established examining board for over a hundred years.

Why take IGCSEs?

The exams are not compulsory, but we follow the IGCSE syllabus in 3e and 2nde as teachers feel it is good preparation for the OIB (Option International Baccalaureate) that many of our students take in 1ère and Terminale in the International Section at the Lycée Jean Rostand. It also has other advantages:
• The Cambridge IGCSE is an internationally recognised exam
• It can replace the TOEFL/ IELTS language exams required for entry to UK universities

Success for our Students

Over the years the APARC Exam Centre, which is run in conjunction with the Lycée Jean Rostand, has had outsandingly good results. This year has been no exception! All of the 27 candidates who took the First Language English IGCSE passed. Eight students obtained an A grade, including four A* grades (over 90%). Fourteen students took and passed the IGCSE English Literature exam, with five students passing with A or A* grades. Special mention should go to Hassan Ahamed and Kealan Jones who achieved the ultimate goal of two A* grades!

Volunteers

I would like to offer my thanks to all the members of APARC who volunteer to help with the exam centre. Without people to help set up the exam rooms, invigilate the exams and assist with the paperwork we would not be able to offer such a valuable service to our students!

Chantilly

Chantilly

Chateau de Chantilly
Situated some 40 km north of Paris and 25 km north of the international airport Charles De Gaulle (CDG), Chantilly is recognized for its calm while appreciated for its easy access to the capital.

As a well respected training centre for thoroughbred horses, Chantilly has long been an attractive environment for horse trainers from around the world. With easy access to Roissy-en-France and the Charles De Gaulle (CDG) international airport, Chantilly has also been a hub for families in the aviation industry. Additionally, regional train service offers a reasonably quick commute to Paris for work or leisure. As such, as international community has become integrated within Chantilly and the surrounding towns. Ex-patriots have settled in the region due to the wonderful community offering a complete range of services while allowing for an easy commute to work. This draw of international families has been the foundation upon which APARC has built its association.
