An employment tribunal found that the Lycée Francais Charles de Gaulle was "guilty" of unlawful age discrimination and victimisation against Ms Delambre.  She had come to England in 1999 and joined the Lycée, a large French school in London with some 4,000 pupils and 450 staff, in 2001.  She still works at the school now.  In 2008 she was refused promotion on grounds of her age and was then victimised by the headmaster and other leading members of staff for complaining.
