Independent preparatory schools do not have to follow the National Curriculum or submit test results to the Department for Education so there is no individual school performance data or star rating.

Visit the school's website to learn more about their unique curriculum, policies on testing and common leaver destinations (a good indicator of pupil progress). See our About page for information on Choosing A Prep School.

School Description

The school was registered in September 2012 and was first inspected in June 2013. La Petite Ecole Bilingue is an independent day school for pupils aged from three to 11 years. It is a bilingual school open to parents and carers who wish their children to have a secular, bilingual, French-English education. It is located in Kentish Town, London. The school aims to ‘provide bilingual education and for pupils to be confident in both English and French.’ In line with the requirements of the French education system, reading and writing are not formally taught in French until pupils reach the age of six years. The curriculum is taught in both English and French. The school uses the local park for physical education (PE). The school is registered for 165 pupils and there are 74 pupils currently on roll aged from Inspection report: La Petite Ecole Bilingue, 14–16 November 2017 Page 8 of 11 three to 11 years. There is a full time Nursery class and a Reception class. There are no pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities or pupils with an education, health and care plan. There are no disadvantaged pupils. There are very few most-able pupils. About four fifths of pupils speak English as an additional language (mainly French speakers). The majority of these pupils are at early stages of speaking English. The mobility of pupils is well above average. There are very few pupils who start in the early years or key stage 1 and stay until the end of Year 6. There were very few pupils in the Year 6 cohort who left the school in 2016. The arrangements for governance are fulfilled by the sole proprietor. By the end of the inspection, the school met the statutory requirements for the publication of information on its website. The school was first inspected in June 2013, when the overall effectiveness of the school was judged as inadequate. This was mainly because some of the independent school standards were not met. The subsequent progress monitoring inspection in December 2013 found two regulations not fully met. These related to the provision of accommodation for the medical examination and treatment of pupils. A progress monitoring inspection took place in June 2014 to check the school’s progress in addressing the weaknesses. The monitoring inspection concluded that the school made good progress in tackling the weaknesses and met all regulatory requirements.
