Find out more about our school.
The Fenix School offers a bilingual education to our pupils but also caters for the pupils’ development through intellectually challenging activities, games and creative tasks.
Our pedagogical approach transforms a boring French class into a fun one, one in which our pupils learn without knowing they are AND most importantly enjoy learning.
At The Fenix School, we believe in creative and dynamic lesson plans that give our pupils the opportunity of expressing themselves but also to be more and more independent and self-confident.
ADMISSIONS FOR JANUARY 2022 ARE NOW OPEN.
Do not hesitate to give us a call for more information or schedule a tour.
