About Us

The 'Ecole Française de Londres Jacques Prévert' is a French school in London which admits boys and girls from the age of 4 to 11 years. It is located in a residential area of West London, in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham.

The school was founded in 1974, initially to serve the local community of French nationals. There are currently around 260 pupils on roll. None of the children under the age of five years have entitlement to free education.
Unlike its English equivalent, the French system works on full calendar years, with the age of children calculated from the 1st January of every year. As a consequence, the French and the English systems work slightly differently*:

Over the years, an increasing proportion of bilingual French/English pupils have been admitted. About one third of pupils have dual British and French nationality and some have solely British nationality. A few pupils speak other languages than French or English at home.

The school is ‘une école conventionnée’ subject to the authority of the French Ministry of Education, exercised through the Agence pour l’Enseignement Français à l’Etranger (AEFE) and the French Embassy in London. The school teaches the French national school curriculum in French. A substantial amount of time is devoted to the teaching of English. The vast majority of pupils continue their education in the Lycée Français but some choose to transition to the British system at 11. The school is also registered as an independent school with the Department for Education (DfE).

It was last inspected by Ofsted in March 2018, which concluded that the school is outstanding and met its aims fully. Parents are extremely positive about the school's work, typically saying, 'The teaching team is amazing and very supportive of all children' ".

As a French school in London, we aim to ‘promote a friendly, familial atmosphere… to provide a harmonious educational experience based on the official French programmes, and opened to the culture of the United Kingdom’.
