What we offer

Enrolment in primary school starts at the age of six. Primary education comprises a five-year cycle with three language sections: a French-speaking section, an English-speaking section and a German-speaking section. In addition to the language of the section, the pupils choose a first and a second language (L1 and L2). At EIGT, the language of the section corresponds to the first or second language. The choice of the second language L2 must be different from the first language L1. The Luxembourgish language is an integral part of the learning program in all language sections.

The École internationale Gaston Thorn will offer a P1, P2, P3 and P4 in both language sections English and French for the 2024–2025 academic year.

You can find the distribution of the subjects per unit and week under this link: coming soon!

Our rules for a good cooperation

Living together in a community means exchanging, understanding and holding on to freedoms and rules. As part of the school’s pillar democracy, the teachers encouraged the children to think about rules in everyday school life. Each class submitted ideas, which were collected and recorded by the teachers.
