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 3 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: 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 students 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 100% for the Brevet with over 74% "Très bien" honours and over 99% for the Baccalauréat (over 64% "Très bien" honours); in the British section, 100% for A-levels (over 79% A*/A) and 100% for GCSEs with 79% 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.
Headmaster Didier Devilard 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."
