La Petite Ecole Française (PEF) is an independent French school that follows the French national education system. The school is part of the AEFE (Agence pour l’Enseignement Français à l’Etranger) and enables its students to progress to existing French speaking schools in London. PEF is has been awarded French Education Nationale ‘Homologation’ status for all its levels from Petite Section to CM2. The ‘Homologation’ confirms that the school is following the learning methods and objectives of the French curriculum.
The school caters for 140 children from the age of 3 to 11, after which they progress to schools such as the Lycée Français, Ecole Primaire Jacques Prévert or the Lycée International de Londres Winston Churchill. There are currently two Petite Section classes, a Moyenne Section class, a Grande Section class and a double-level Moyenne-Grande Section class. In the primary section, there are also two double-level classes, CP/ CE1 and CE2/CM1 and the last level, CM2, is a single level class. The classes are intentionally kept small so that each child can be given the special attention they require.
