Obviously, things are rather up in the air at the moment with all schools in France closed down. But I don't believe you'll have much luck finding an ICSE board school in France, much less in Caen.

The schools here tend to be rather centralized and even private schools very often adopt the French national curriculum. You may want to look for English language schools, though these are often following the British curriculum or, in some cases, the International Baccalaureate system (at least once you get to the middle school and high school years).

In addition to Bev's comments, note that schools offering instruction in mixed English & French are fairly common, and often part of the public school system - thus free. However, when you start looking for 100% English language instruction, and conformance to another (foreign) educational system (usually called International Schools), the availability goes down, quickly, and the prices go way up.

You might well consider using the French public schools and look for a bilingual program. Especially if you are going to be in France for more than a year or so. This will not only save you a lot of money but will also give your son the incredible gift of a second language. You might also ask around in India about how to best accommodate your son's return after having been schooled outside the Indian system.

And, finally, to reiterate. Getting anything arranged right now, even just getting information, may be difficult or impossible.

Thanks Bev for your reply. Yeah it's lockdown so information is less. Will see personally when visit to Caen about the schools with bilingual programs.

Thanks berkinet for your valuable inputs. Will surely check for the bilingual program in that case.
