The staff at Sauveterre are all integral in your child’s education and enjoyment of their term in France. All of the staff are passionate about French culture and language and are dedicated to instilling this into every student who attends Sauveterre. Additionally, the staff are truly committed to encouraging students to thrive during their time with us by increasing their confidence, independence and resilience. Our pastoral and support staff are all English-speaking, with many of our Gap year students being past Sauveterrians. Our academic, catering and domestic staff are all French locals, many of whom have been part of Sauveterre for over a decade.
