NEW ADMISSIONS

For all inquiries during the school year, please contact the admissions office at: secretariat-eleves@lyceefrancais.org.uk. They will inform you about the procedure to follow (FAQ). For pupils who do not attend a partner school (AEFE) in London please consult our admission calendar.

NOTES

  1. Students are eligible under priority criteria and the number of places available. Therefore, the first registered is not the first accepted.
  2. Only children who are or will be living in London in September 2019, with at least one of their parents, can be enrolled in one of our schools. This restriction does not apply to students with a merit scholarship from the French Ministry of Education.
  3. Families can only select one primary school on registration. If the first choice was not possible, the application will automatically be re-assessed for another school where places are available. At Wix and Marie d'Orliac schools, if it is impossible to offer a place in a bilingual class but possible in a non-blingual class, the family will be notified.

Non-EU students

The Lycée Français Charles de Gaulle and its primary schools (Ecole de Wix, Ecole Marie d’Orliac, Ecole André Malraux and Ecole South Kensington) are not able to sponsor a student’s application to obtain a visa. Before applying at the Lycée Français Charles de Gaulle or one of its primary schools, it is mandatory for the family to obtain all relevant documents (passport, visa…) so the student may study in the UK. Only schools licensed by the Home Office may sponsor a student. For more information, click here.

 

Initial registration fees are non refundable. Please make sure that your child is authorized to study in the UK before applying.
