Saint Denis is situated in the Loire Valley, a UNESCO worldwide heritage site, full of history and famous castles visited by people from around the world. Pupils benefit from a calm and safe living environment in the medieval town of Loches, which possesses a variety of restaurants, shops, cafés and much more. Rich countryside, forests, cycle paths, streams and trails surround our school. Regular bus lines connect Loches to the vibrant student city of Tours, nicknamed “Little Paris”, for its cosmopolitan and artistic culture. Paris is just one hour from Tours on the high-speed rail connection. The Tours airport provides easy connection to London, Dublin, Porto, Marrakesh, Marseilles, etc.

During the week, students stay at one of our two boarding houses with staff present at all hours. During the weekends and school holidays, international students benefit from living with a French family that is closely connected to our school and community. Whether students are staying for a few weeks or a whole year, they have the option to stay with host families.
