If it is a Catholic school then it is your choice but you would need to be ready to take the kids yourself.

However, the state schools are different. If there is a specialist course on offer that you can't access anywhere else then yes you could go, especially at lycée level.

I thought you needed permission or a 'derogation' from your Mairie if you weren't going to the local school. Or has this changed? Or is it only primary school.

By the way, salvager, children in the UK don't have to go to the nearest school.

If you need a school bus to take the child (children) to the school in a different dept, you may find you could have a problem.

Yes as long as you can get them there and the school is happy to accept them theres no reason why not.There is no such thing as children having to attend their nearest school like in the UK.
