Our school

The French School of Lusaka was founded in 1980, following the initiative of French residents in Zambia, and with the support of the French Embassy in Zambia.
French classes were initially hosted by the Italian school until 2005. Since then, the french school building has been located at the Alliance Francaise.


The French School is endorsed by the AEFE, and follows the French national curriculum until junior school. Thereafter, it switches over to the french national distance learning curriculum of the CNED. We welcome French and French-speaking pupils.
Non French-speaking children can be accepted, provided they enrol at the yearly years stages, where they will benefit from additional French language tuition.
The school curriculum is endorsed by the AEFE and the French Ministry of Education until junior school. Thereafter, the students switch over to the CNED (French national distance learning programme). They follow a regular time-table, and work in small groups with a secondary teacher. Their work is submitted online for marking. We currently have a total of 120 pupils of all ages and nationalities at the school.


After junior school, the curriculum is no longer endorsed by the AEFE. Children must enrol at the CNED. The CNED benefits from the recognition of the French ministry of education.
All our pupils follow a similar time-table to that of any college in France. Each 2-3 weeks, they are assessed by submitting their work online.
The CNED distance learning programme is rigorous and demands the learners discipline, a skill we nurture from the onset.
