Founded in 1899 by the sociologist Edmond Demolins, École des Roches is an exclusive co-educational day and boarding school located in the small town of Verneuil-sur-Avre, in the heart of the beautiful Normandy countryside. The school welcomes pupils aged from 6 to 18 years of age to the Primary, Middle and High school, and follows the French and International Baccalaureate programmes. École des Roches also provides a highly regarded French Immersion Programme aimed at allowing pupils from around the world to join the school and develop their French language skills, in addition to Summer and Winter programmes. 

Underpinning everything that we do, is the aim that each pupil not only gets fulfilment and enjoyment from their school years but leaves the school with an understanding and value of self and with the necessary skills and knowledge to succeed at university and in the wider world. That success depends not only on high academic and extra-curricular achievement but also on having acquired the necessary human skills and values that will enable them to operate in a global society. 

Bellevue Education has been working in partnership with the leadership team at this GEMS school since 2019.
