French in Normandy is so proud to have gained certification as a Green Standard School.
We are the only school in France to have our environmental and sustainability policies recognised by this burgeoning and exciting new accreditation scheme.
Green Standard Schools is a not-for-profit association that aims to encourage the adoption of rigorous, new environmental standards across the sector in order to promote environmental sustainability in language teaching institutions.
Many of you will know of our commitment to environmental policies and to working towards a better cleaner and more sustainable model and we fully support this effort. We hope that where we lead other schools will follow helping to make our industry more environmentally friendly and more aware through our actions and curriculum so contributing to a more respectful balance between our business needs and those of the planet.

Over the years the education travel industry has seen various schools grow in terms of both size and popularity amongst agents and direct clients. As in any other industry, hard work should always be rewarded, and the importance of such rewards has been demonstrated through the increasing number of award ceremonies within the education sector. These events bring together like-minded people to celebrate great examples of best practices and inspiring leaders, to name but a few.

5 Groupement fle schools supported a competition organised by the French linguistic attaché in Spain, Manuela Ferrero Pinto. The French Ambassador, M Yves Saint-Geours in Spain was the guest of honour at the Institut Français de Madrid at the ceremony to give out the prizes to enthusiastic young learners of French.
The national competition, to celebrate the anniversary of French author Albert Camus’ Nobel Prize award, was organised by the Institut Français in Spain.

Groupement fle schools Accent Français , CMAF, Cap d’ail, French in Normandy, Institut de Touraine and LSF all supported the initiative giving a week of French lessons to winning teams of 6 from various schools throughout Spain.
Said Groupement fle spokesperson Eleri Maitland, who was present at the ceremony on behalf of GFLE, “Groupement fle is proud to partner the Institut Français in Spain. Our job is to encourage and support initiatives that put the French language centre stage. Naturally, as the number one network of French language schools in France, it is our role to work closely with French government institutions to encourage and promote the French language. We are delighted to have been instrumental in this fantastic and very successful project and we look forward to welcoming the winners to France this year“.
