The Anglophone Section's governing body, known as the APESA (Association des Parents d'Elèves de la Section Anglophone) Board, comprises 12 elected members with board positions lasting for two academic years. Elections are held at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) each year. 


The APESA is a non profit-making legal entity (Association Loi 1901) that employs the Anglophone Section teachers and administrative staff. In accordance with French law, all parents with children enrolled in the Anglophone Section are automatically members of the APESA.


Working closely with the head of section, and the senior management and administration teams, the APESA Board oversees the management of the Anglophone Section relating to finance, human resources (including recruitment) and strategy. 


All of the Board members are volunteers and Board meetings are held once per month.

We strongly encourage all parents to get involved in the running of the Section by attending the AGM and putting themselves forward for election to the Board. For further information please contact the Board President at
