Luxembourg’s second state primary offering programmes in English is to open in Belair in September, with a permanent campus eventually planned for Kirchberg.
According to the website of Lycée Michel Lucius, the “new feeder primary school” will be initially located at 23 rue Charles IV. No details were given about the building itself, although it is thought that classes could initially be held in container classrooms.
The school will follow the Cambridge Curriculum for the core subjects of English, Maths, Science and ICT. Luxembourgish will be taught as a language of communication and integration in all classes, while pupils may choose an additional foreign language between French and German in cycle 3 and 4.
Subjects including PE, arts and music, citizenship, geography and history will be “in line with local concerns and international expectations,” the website said.
Once open it will be the second state-run primary school offering English programmes after the opening of the Ecole Internationale in Differdange, in September 2016.
Lycée Michel Lucius, which is based in Limpertsberg-Luxembourg, has offered English streams at secondary level since 2011.
Today it offers A-Level and IGCSE and counts 450 students in the international section.
While it is not mentioned on the school’s website, a source close to the institution said that discussions are underway to move both primary and secondary schools to a permanent site in Kirchberg at a later date.
Parents may enroll their child to begin at the primary school in September 2017 provided the child is at least six years old by 1 September.
