Our values (for children and staff) are:
Considerate: caring, polite, community, fairness and understanding, encouraging others

Effort: participation, perseverance, resilience, willingness and desire to improve
Our bicultural ethos
For over 20 years Wix has shared its site with École de Wix, a French primary school which is an annexe of the Lycée Français Charles de Gaulle de Londres. Between us, we offer three streams onsite: the English Stream (run by Belleville Wix Academy); the French Stream (run by École de Wix) and the Bilingual Stream (run jointly by the two schools).
We aim to ensure that all children on site have routine and meaningful opportunities to play together, work together and learn from one another. All children eat together, wear the same uniform, and share playtimes with their peers. We value and cherish the rich mixture of cultures and world languages represented at Belleville Wix and are particularly proud of the bicultural spirit on site.
