Headmaster Didier Devilard, of Lycée Français Charles de Gaulle, describes the school’s capacity to develop their educational practices ‘whilst never losing sight of our tradition of excellence’. The school is highly academic, and welcomes more than 550 new students each year, all the way from the Petite Section (Nursery) through to Terminale (Year 13). 

There are 3450 students at the institution of Lycée Français Charles de Gaulle in London, spread between South Kensington and three other primary schools: André Malraux in Ealing, Marie D’Orliac in Fulham and Wix in Clapham. 

The School is multilingual, multicultural and multidisciplinary. All sites offer a bilingual programme of varying intensities. Student Life encompasses widely-ranging student activities from the Arts to Sports, Charity to Ecology and opportunities to enter into new interests. Sports such as volleyball, basketball and football are available. Once a week, Collègiens travel by coach to Raynes Park for athletics and to utilise the fields, and for swimming head to Paddington for St Mary’s Pool. 

Lycée Français Charles de Gaulle offers a British Section, comprising a traditional academic programme of GCSEs and Alevels. Education is delivered in English, and ‘Le British’ is situated on the main site at South Kensington; no less significant in its intensity or academic achievements, however. The British Section contains over 200 students from Year 10 to A-Level, with French as a mandatory subject at A-Level.

With qualifications of the Brevet, International Baccalauréat, GCSEs and A-Levels, Lycée Français Charles de Gaulle’s academics are incredibly highly regarded. Students are accepted at some of the most prestigious universities and higher education institutions such as Oxbridge, King’s College, London School of Economics, Polytechnique, Yale, Harvard etc.

Admission is academically selective, and is certainly more competitive for external applicants into the Senior School due to the assured progression of students from the Primary Schools. Pupils are admitted through a combination of assessments and interviews; of language abilities, future plans/motivations and grades.
