The only bilingual French‑English all‑through school in the UK. From 18 months to 18 years old.
The vision behind L'Ecole Internationale Franco‑Anglaise (EIFA) was to bring a truly bilingual school to London. A school where a combination of high quality, imaginative and engaging teaching gives students the priceless gift of two mother tongues.
With Little EIFA for the infants, a Junior school and the Senior school, EIFA is the only French‑English bilingual school in the UK catering for students from 18 months to 18 years old, offering them the continuity of environment that develops the basis for a lifelong multilingual ability.
A school for London's international community
In our increasingly globalised world opportunities can arise in many different countries. EIFA gives children from all backgrounds the critical, creative and language skills needed to take these opportunities wherever in the world they arise.
EIFA is a candidate school to offer the Bilingual IB Diploma Programme in French and English. It will be the first school in the UK to teach the IB Diploma Programme in both languages. This ensures that our students' qualifications will be accepted by institutions in whatever part of the world your children's talents and ambitions take them.
Quality at the heart of everything we do
The concept at the core of the EIFA approach is quality. High quality staff, teaching high quality lessons in a high quality environment. Children are naturally inquisitive and open minded. The EIFA philosophy is to develop this natural curiosity by teaching children the skills to think critically about the world around them.
The result is children who are happy, open minded and inquisitive, giving them the skills they need to become true citizens of the world waiting for them.
Applications are considered throughout the year, and visitors are welcome to our school every Tuesday and Thursday. Please contact Mrs Panhelleux at gp@ecole‑ifa.com to book a visit. We are located in the heart of Marylebone. Our Nursery School and Junior School are located at 36 Portland Place.
