History, activities, and structureEdit
It was formed in 1975 from the merger of INS (the National Institute of Sport) and ENSEP (L'École Normale Supérieure d'Éducation Physique), and has roots in the 1817 Amoros Military Gymnasium. It trains athletes in 26 different sports.
It operates under the French Ministry of Youth and Sport, and functions based on centralized athletic partnerships with prominent high schools in Paris — such as Lycée Condorcet, Lycée Saint-Louis, Lycée Janson de Sailly, GHS Claude Monet, and The International School of Paris — with a measure of autonomy.
