The Lycée Français Charles de Gaulle de Londres is governed by the AEFE (Agence de l'Enseignement Français à l'Etranger, a vast network with over 500 French schools in about 140 countries). 3,450 pupils are taught, spread over the main site in South Kensington and the three locations of its primary schools: Ecole Marie d’Orliac (Fulham), Ecole de Wix (Clapham) and Ecole André Malraux (Ealing).
Since its inception in 1915, the school has evolved and more than forty nationalities now make up its community. One thing has not changed though: its ability to develop educational practices whilst never losing sight of its tradition of excellence. Whichever section it be, British, International, Bilingual, Multilingual or French - this balance of tradition with modernity provides our pupils with a unique experience in an exceptional environment.
Delivering first-class education, this centennial institution offers various curricula leading towards public examinations (French brevet and baccalauréat, GCSEs, A-Levels) with consistent outstanding results. Typical success rates are 99.6% for the Brevet with over 82% "Très bien" honours and over 99% for the Baccalauréat (over 64% "Très bien" honours); in the British section, 100% for A-levels (over 62% A*/A) and 100% for GCSEs with 78% 9-7 grades.
The school makes a simple and honest commitment: to offer each child the best conditions to realise their academic potential, to be able to develop and thrive in a peaceful environment and achieve the level of excellence required to access their desired course even at the most competitive universities and higher education institutions worldwide.
The Headteacher confirms: "We nurture each individual with care and help them build self-confidence - this remains our pledge to our families as much today as it has been for over a century."
