International School

Welcome to Mougins School

A warm welcome from James Wellings our Head of School 

Thank you for visiting us and I hope you will find the information that you are looking for on these pages. If not, please do not hesitate to get in touch directly and we will be very happy to talk with you. 

I am privileged to be the Head of School here at Mougins School. We are located near the beautiful hilltop village of Mougins on the Côte d’Azur in the south of France. Our beautiful campus is nestled in woodland and is situated between the Alps and the Mediterranean Sea making it one of the most striking school sites in France. We are also part of the Sophia Antipolis technology park and surrounded by some of the leading and most innovative companies in France. This provides a setting that is beautifully balanced between the natural world and the best of human innovation.

We have just over 500 wonderful students on campus aged from 3 to18 and are happy to serve both the local and expatriate community here in Mougins. With over 40 nationalities making up our student population we are a British inspired school with a truly international feel. This combination of our location and our community makes our school a very special place to be.  

As the Head of School I believe we have a responsibility to ensure that all of our students can enrich their lives through a wide range of activities and programs that allow them to find their passions. We are values driven with a focus on student achievement, in whatever form that takes. Education is a journey and learning is a nonlinear process so through effort, perseverance and the embracing of challenges our learners will go on to positively shape the lives of themselves, others and the world around them. 

I hope you will come on that journey with us. 

James Wellings,
Head of School 

Prepare for tomorrow’s world with an education worthy of today
