We are very proud to have French classes from the CNED programme since September 2017.

Pupils aged between 6 and 11 years old, whose mother tongue is French, have the opportunity to follow the French curriculum (seulement la matière "français") alongside the English curriculum. We do this by offering the CNED programme; a well-established programme validated by the French Ministry of Education to provide a French educational standard for students living overseas.

The company Tutoring London ( is dealing with both teachers and families . Pupils are taught by qualified French native-speaking teachers and they study French within their respective classes i.e. CP- CE1 – CE2 – CM1- CM2.  Lessons are taught in small groups of 1 to 5 children and are at the charge of the family.

The programme, textbooks and evaluations are all provided by the CNED, Centre National d’Enseignement à Distance based in Toulouse, France. Families are responsible to buy these supports . This organisation provides an end of year report certifying that the child has completed the CNED programme which subsequently allows pupils to return to a French school at the right level.
