Lycée Français International Georges Pompidou Sharjah is a private non-profit primary school located in the Al Abar area in Sharjah. The school was established in 1978 by the board of governors as a school for French expatriates and international students.

Lycée Français International Georges Pompidou Sharjah is one of the LFIGP branches located within the UAE, a school group approved by the French Ministry of National Education. The school is also recognized as part of a network of Agency for French Teaching Abroad (AEFE).

Both the primary and the secondary phases of Lycée Français International Georges Pompidou in Dubai are rated as Outstanding by the KHDA, Dubai's education regulator. It is a fair assumption to make that policies and processes will be fairly uniformly applied across locations.

Currently (2016/17) the Sharjah branch caters to 400 student and employs 25 teachers, and 6 assistants. There are 16 primary classes, 6 kindergarten classes and 10 elementary classes from CP to CM2.

The school follows a mixed French and Ministry of Education curriculum with a majority of subjects being taught in French. Depending on the year level, students also have the option to learn English, Arabic and Spanish.

Facilities seem acceptable with modern sports facilities (gym and two football fields), an infirmary, a library, a computer room and a science room. LFIGP Sharjah is also "twinned" with the neighboring German International School allows sharing some facilities - such as its swimming pool. The two schools also jointly run many events together.

Lycee Francais Georges Pompidou Sharjah offers a program of cultural and sports extracurricular activities every day from 13:45. These include arts, DIY, cooking, theater, and dance. The program changes each quarter. School trips are organized each year for classes CE1, CE2, CM1 and CM2.

Fees as of 2016/17 for the school range from between 24,000 to 29,000 AED per year.
