Schools in and near Geneva area??

Errr... don't know where to begin. My partner and I are due to move to Geneva ASAP with our 9 year old son. He is in an int school in London and learning French (main language is English).

Can anyone give me some idea about the schools around Geneva and how difficult or easy it will be to get him a place ASAP. London is v difficult you have to put their names down to a school before you give birth
Do they also need to take an exam (like in the UK) :-((((

Many thanks

Re: Schools in and near Geneva area??

I have 2 children at the British school of geneva - they have just opened a primary section - however the school is small, advantages are small class sizes, no waiting list etc. but some things can be limited.
I also have 1 child at school in France in english national program.
I know that if you have assistance with school fees there are some great choices but there may be a wait list.
Good luck with your move, if you need any further advice feel free to contact me
