Ecole Jeannine Manuel

Ecole Jeannine Manuel London, founded in 2015, is a co-educational, bilingual, international school for 3-18 year olds, recognised as a Cambridge International School. Its sister school in Paris has impressively been ranked first lycée for the past five years – and most likely will for the sixth. Ecole Jeannine Manuel London prides itself on their mission to promote international understanding through the bilingual education of a multicultural community of pupils and to foster pedagogical innovation.

‘The opening of the Upper School will complete our 3-18 year olds’ education cycle and further our mission of international understanding.’ – Pauline Prévot, Head of Ecole Jeannine Manuel London

The exciting launch of the Upper School will benefit from multiple partnerships established by the Primary and Middle schools, with London cultural institutions such as Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and University College London for sports facilities. The school will also extend and expand its bursary program for current and new Upper School pupils.

Successful pupils entering Sixth Form will be given the opportunity to choose either the International Option of the French baccalaureate (British section OIB) or the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB). Each course is challenging and stimulating. In particular, the bicultural curriculum in History-Geography and an enriched English Literature syllabus from the OIB course offers the most demanding French lycée curriculum, requiring a native command of both French and English. The IB program is also recognised for its academic rigour, with six subjects distributed among STEM disciplines and the humanities.

‘Both programmes are highly valued by the world’s most prestigious universities. Pupils will choose the baccalaureate track that best fits their talents and higher education aspirations.’ – Pauline Prévot

Ecole Jeannine Manuel London is also a fantastic choice when considering university and further steps into education. Their successful university counselling system comprises of a team including a French specialist, a UK university adviser and an American college counsellor. Each will help every pupil, define goals as well as planning the application process.

‘École Jeannine Manuel sends more graduates to Oxbridge and to Russell Group universities in the UK, and to Ivy League colleges in the US, than any other school in France. We will bring this expertise to London so that each pupil can benefit from it.’ – Bernard Manuel, Chairman

Ecole Jeannine Manuel London is a brilliant choice when considering schools for talented pupils with a skill for languages.
