École Jeannine Manuel in London is a French, bilingual, international school which opened its doors in September 2015 on Bedford Square with the objective to bring a unique perspective in the landscape of international schools in London. We welcome pupils from all nationalities, cultural traditions and native languages.

Everything we do at École Jeannine Manuel is driven by our mission, which consists in "promoting international understanding through the bilingual education of a multicultural community of students, the fostering of pedagogical innovation, and the constant exploration of best practices in the context of an ever-changing global environment."

To achieve that, our curriculum is based on an enriched version of the international sections programs of the French Ministry of Education. The English, Science and Chinese programs were developed by our Paris sister school, a UNESCO associated school founded in 1954 and recognized as the top French Lycée for the fourth consecutive year. In History, the curriculum is complemented so pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain's past and that of the wider world. Co-curricular activities include sports - with outside facilities at the pupil's disposal - as well as a wide range of after-school clubs.

English and French are used equally in class. We welcome non French-speaking students at all levels and beginners in English up to Year 7. Our aim is to bring pupils to a native proficiency - oral and written - in both languages because a true bilingual education enhances pupils' capacity for abstract, conceptual thinking and develops a sense of nuance, nurtured by exposure to multiple perspectives.

The key drivers of our school's pedagogy are coherence and innovation. Inspired by current research in cognitive sciences and by best practices from around the world or designed by our school's pedagogues, our teaching methods aim at making pupils think, do and share. Our international teams of teachers stimulate new ideas that lead to a creative, pioneering education: hands-on manipulations in math, inquiry-based learning in the sciences, and teamwork are among the practices that foster pupil engagement and growth.

In its first year, École Jeannine Manuel welcomed 190 pupils representing 37 nationalities from Reception to Year 8 pupils. 120 new pupils will join us in September 2016, from Nursery to Year 9, first steps towards a primary and secondary school of 1,100 pupils leading to the French and the International Baccalaureates.
