Two international French colleges have been listed in the Good Schools Guide for the first time.

The Collège Français Bilingue de Londres and its Junior Section, both in Holmes Road, Kentish Town, were among only 11 new schools to enter the Good Schools Guide’s new London North and London South editions.

The bilingual independent schools, which teaches a French curriculum, are two of only three schools in London run by AEFE, the French government agency of teaching French abroad.

The college for pupils aged between 11 and 15 was hailed by the guide’s editors as a “sparkling little gem in the heart of Kentish Town”.

The reviewer wrote: “An interesting school that embodies all of the academic rigour associated with the French tradition, but with a strong emphasis on languages and English.”

The guide said parents of children at the junior section were said to admire its “socio-economic atmosphere”.
