Before you move to London, you will have to make important choices, such as the choice of your health insurance in London, the neighborhood where to live or the school of your children ...
The decision is difficult
When you are moving in London, school is often one of the primary concerns of families. The choice of schooling is unique and specific to each of them and to make a choice, it is necessary to research and know all possible scenarios, to understand the characteristics of each mode of schooling proposed in London. They are many and varied, more accessible today, and generally open to bilingualism. French, English, bilingual or international school, which system would be best for your child?
If you want to stay in the French system, you can benefit from a varied offer that has grown considerably in recent years and makes London a unique place. Four schools, each offering a bilingual project in their own way, have opened their doors in the space of 7 years, which has considerably increased the number of places for students. How is English and French taught, what project for the school, what subjects are taught in English, are all questions that arise for you.
Alternatively, take advantage of London to enroll your child in one of the many public or private English schools to enable him to learn English in immersion, confront him to another culture and benefit from an education that promotes personal development, autonomy, self-confidence. The English system may seem rather complex, very heterogeneous in terms of academic level according to the schools and expensive if you opt for the private sector. That is why, to choose a good school, you must first and foremost: clearly determine your goal and your means, know what values you want to transmit to your child, and also have the right tools to help your decision like the OFSTED or ISI reports for example.
