Ecole Jeannine Manuel is a co-educational bilingual international day school for pupils aged 3 to 18. The school welcomes 360 pupils representing over 40 nationalities. A UNESCO associated school established in the heart of Bloomsbury, the school is approved by the French Ministry of Education and registered as a Cambridge International School.
Pupils follow an ambitious bilingual core curriculum through Year 11. For their final two years, they choose the course of studies (IB or French-international track) that best suits their tastes, strengths, higher education aspirations and cultural preferences. Both tracks are recognized by the most selective universities in the world. Non-French speakers are welcome at every stage. If they come early, they quickly join our bilingual core; if not, they follow an English-driven curriculum leading to the IB Diploma Programme, but are still expected to attain a high level of French proficiency.
Ecole Jeannine Manuel is a young school in London (2015), but its Paris namesake is one of France’s top schools, ranked first for the past five years by l’Internaute, one of two major French league tables. While we are proud of our pupils’ academic achievements, our school’s ethos is first and foremost student-centred, focused on each child’s overall development and well-being. These aims are supported by an international team of passionate educators, all native speakers in their language of instruction. Our pupil/teacher ratio is 9:1.
Supporting pupils’ higher education ambitions is a key feature of education at Ecole Jeannine Manuel. University counselling begins in Year 10, focusing primarily on the UK, the US, France and Canada, but also reaching the growing number of English-taught programmes in Europe and in Asia. Although London pupils have not reached Year 13 yet, our Paris sister school sends more graduates to Ivy League colleges in the US, to Oxbridge, and to Russell group Universities in the UK than any other school in France.
