  • New website at www.lfigp.org. Previous domain www.lgp.ae returns an error. Presumably email address intendance@lgp.ae is no longer valid.
05 September 2008
  • Lycee Georges Pompidou Ecole primaire Sharjah is often referred to as the Sharjah French School
  • Fees updated for 2008-2009.
  • Add registration fee of 5000 dhs (first time student is enrolled) and deposit of 4000 dhs.
12 January 2007
  • Website www.lgp.ae ok Jan 2007 but DNS error for www.lyceegeorgespompidou.ae.
  • Contact details from the LGP website, another email is administration@lgp.ae. Some searches will throw up sites giving different contact details in Sharjah ie: tel +971-6-5523430, fax +971-6-5369587, PO Box 255, Sharjah, email lyceeshj@emirates.net.ae. It's not clear where these come from although they do refer to LGP.
  • As expected, the majority of staff and students are French (or Arabic with a French connection).
  • Parents and students seem to be reasonably satisfied.
  • See also Lycee Georges Pompidou Ruwayyah (LGP Ruwayah) and Lycee Georges Pompidou Dubai (primary annex to the Sharjah school).
12 September 2005
  • A Khaleej Times report 12 September 2005 highlighted "Goerge Bombaid" Private School as one in which the principal, "Christian Locus", was also a licence partner, which is not allowed according to the report. Not confirmed if the report was referring to Georges Pompidou School but that seems to be the closest match.
