Ecole Jeannine Manuel London is a co-educational bilingual international French school for 3-18 year olds in the heart of London. Our school is the sister school of its Paris namesake, ranked first among French lycées for the last eight years. The school’s mission is to promote international understanding through the bilingual education of a multicultural community of students. It believes in pedagogical innovation and the constant exploration of best practices, in the context of an ever-changing global environment.
École Jeannine Manuel London welcomes over 500 students from Nursery to Year 13, representing almost forty nationalities and every major cultural and religious tradition.
Students follow an enriched bilingual curriculum and, in Year 12, choose between the French track leading to the international option of the French baccalaureate (American section) and the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB). Academic standards are high: our students achieve excellent marks in both examinations.
Each year, the school welcomes new non-French speaking pupils. These students, key to the cultural diversity of the school, are enrolled in an adaptation program where they receive intensive and immersive French tuition tailored to their individual level.
The school’s teaching approach is based on constant self-evaluation and innovation with regards to its methods and objectives. Innovation in the classroom is inspired by the latest research in the fields of education and cognitive science and by the creativity of its teaching staff. Students are encouraged to be active learners and to develop a heightened self-awareness of their progress.
The school has developed several in-house programs in collaboration with leading researchers, including an integrated science program designed with Nobel Prize-winning physicist Georges Charpak, and a Chinese language-learning tool developed with the Sesame Street team.
École Jeannine Manuel London is accredited by the French Ministry of Education, the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO), Ofsted, Cambridge Assessment International Education, AEFE, and the Independent Schools Association.

During these complicated times, the school has been our anchor, and we are truly grateful. The seamless switch to online learning during lockdown was both efficient and impressive.
Heaven for a child who wants to be encouraged to think and discuss and experiment rather than regurgitate facts.
