INFORMATION REGARDING ALL NEW APPLICANTS

Transfer between two schools part of the AEFE network in London:
An agreement (the “Charter”), between French schools in London, which are part of the AEFE network, regulates the transfer of pupils between such schools.  

This policy guarantees pupils  the possibility  to  continue  a  French  education  in  London  in the AEFE network, until  the  end  of  their  school  studies (end  of  terminale).   
Children attending a French school in London, part of the AEFE network, must generally remain in that school until the end of the curriculum. (Except if there's an admission in British Section).
The Lycée français Charles de Gaulle shares this policy with other French institutions in London. (Places will be given to pupils coming from the partner schools in CP, 6ème and 2nde, subject to availability and following our Criteria for admission)

Parents are also strongly advised to apply in all the other French schools in London offering the relevant level.  Jacques Prévert, Ecole de Battersea, CFBL, Lycée International de Londres for CP, CFBL and Lycée International de Londres for 6ème, Lycée International de Londres for 2nde.)
