As 'secondary (or high) school' covers student ages from 12-13 to 18-19, it is not a simple choice between 'lycée' and 'collége' in my part of the world. It may be better to give an age range clue for the students if looking for a specific French level of schooling to be given, as there is no uniform standard in English.

Bonjour Maarten and Kay,
Thank you for your comment!
'UK - Aus Secondary school' / 'US middle school' = collège
'UK 6th Form / US high school / Aus senior secondary school' = lycée
I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
So Maarten is collége and lycée acceptable in this context? What about l'école secondaire/intermédiaire?
