We are a welcoming and vibrant international bilingual school located in the prestigious Marylebone area in Central London.
Our mission is to develop internationally-minded bilingual students, who will be at ease in more than one culture, communicate in more than one language, respect the views of others and understand how these are shaped. Students at all levels are called upon to think critically, creatively and inclusively by learning to observe, question, and evaluate all options before drawing conclusions.
We are home to 310 students from over 40 nationalities, and we celebrate their diversity and individuality. At the heart of our philosophy is that each student will be known personally and valued by his or her teachers and the entire school community as an individual with unique talents and abilities. In small classes, committed, passionate teachers nurture and build upon students’ strengths, and provide them support when they feel challenged. Our specialist teachers stimulate them to fulfil their sporting, creative and musical potential, which they can further develop by taking part in our exciting extra-curricular activities and community projects.
As a family of three schools - Little EIFA, Junior EIFA and Senior EIFA - students join us at different stages of their learning journey and, up to Year 8, we accept children who have not yet mastered one of the two languages of instruction, French or English. At the start of Year 10, students may choose to follow courses leading to IGCSE examinations or opt for the French certificate, the Diplôme National du Brevet (DNB). EIFA offers its students the opportunity to follow the International Baccalaureate® Diploma Programme (IB DP), whose ethos corresponds to the school principle: enabling young people to become articulate citizens of the world fully supported in their physical, intellectual, emotional as well as ethical development.
The IB Diploma covers a wide range of disciplines, each of which contributes to foster students' autonomy by enabling them to be involved in their learning.
EIFA is one of very few schools to offer students the opportunity to choose between the International Baccalaureate® and the Bilingual International Baccalaureate®. Both are regarded as excellent preparation for higher education and therefore welcomed by leading universities worldwide.
EIFA enables pupils to pursue a bilingual education from nursery to the International Baccalaureate®.
We are happy to arrange individual visits and taster days so you and your child can experience EIFA International School first-hand. Please call +44 (0)20 7637 5351 to make an appointment or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
