Bilingual Teaching

L’Ecole de Battersea is an international bilingual school that follows the French curriculum with parallel teaching from the English curriculum.

Our method is unique in the manner it combines different languages through different subjects. Children are immersed in both languages and cultures throughout their day at school, whether in class, in the playground, in canteen, in arts and sports or on outings.

*Pupils born between September and December will be the equivalent of the school English year below.


We are proud of the high quality of our teaching and of the high academic standards reached by our pupils.

The school is homologuée by the Ministère de l’Education Nationale and partenaire de l’Agence pour l’Enseignement Français à l’Étranger (AEFE -Agency for French Education Abroad) and registered with the English Department for Education (DfE).

The school is inspected by the Inspector for French National Education as well as by the English Office for Standards Education, Children’s Services and Skills (Ofsted).

By taking the best from both systems our children master skills in both languages from an early age and develop adaptive and open-minded capacities in their approach to the world of tomorrow.

All our teachers are qualified with either an English or French degree, with pupils receiving teaching in both languages throughout the day and every day.


They blend the French and English curriculum seamlessly which has given my daughters an international outlook and broadened their horizons.
