About College Francais Bilingue de Londres
CFBL‘s education is based on bilingual and bi-cultural teaching methods accredited by the French Department for Education.
CFBL works in partnership with the AEFE, a public institution working under the aegis of the French Foreign Office, which oversees a network of more than 400 schools worldwide.
It is a private fee paying independent school but pupils who are French nationals can apply for a means tested bursary from the French Consulate in London.
CFBL is inspected by both British (Ofsted) and French (AEFE) inspection services.
