for English-speaking children in EU countries

  • Are you the parent of an English-speaking child in a non-English language school system?
  • Would you like them to be taught how to write well in English, alongside other English-speaking children, and give them the chance to experience Anglo-Saxon teaching methods?

  • Would you like them to get a recognised qualification that could help them gain entry to further education establishments in the English-speaking world?


I ​

If so, then we would love to welcome you to our online secondary section!


Classes are taught by Ruth Marx on ZOOM and are open to students within the EU.

  • KS3 Skills (11-13 year olds) & Edexcel IGCSE English Literature & Language (14+ year olds). Students who are ready to sit the exams after following this two/three year course are entered as external candidates at a test centre in their country of residence.

  • Philosophy May be of interest to any student sitting "l'epreuve de Philsophie" as part of their Bac in France, with a possibility of sitting a UK School Certificate at the end of the year.












Please see our Courses section for detailed information on what the classes contain and the methodology behind them.

"Where else will your kids be excited about Shakespeare and beg to buy more of his plays?! Amazing classes and community."

"Clémence joined JITB Toulouse at its outset in 2012 when she was 10, two years after our arrival in France, and we've never looked back!


Last year, she passed the IGCSE English Language and English Literature exams with grade 'A's in both, and these achievements are now featuring in her UCAS application to British universities.


Although she was always an avid reader, we would never have been able to help her progress with her written language skills in line with her peers in the British system without the classes at Jack in the Box Toulouse.


Apart from really enjoying the challenge and fun of the lessons, she also appreciated being connected with other children like her, which helped her to feel less isolated.


Mark's structured exam preparation programme and his unfailing support and belief - in all his pupils - supported her through the final straight, and ultimately helped her to approach the exams with confidence.


A big thank you to all the wonderful, motivating JITB teachers we have encountered over the years, and especially to Emma, without whose determination Clémence wouldn't have had the chance to blossom in her mother tongue!"

- Rosemary, mum to Clémence (17)
