Head of school's welcome
Dear Parents, Carers, pupils, colleagues,
All CFBL staff and I are delighted to be able to welcome 700 students for the 2021-2022 academic year.
Our school is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year and at the same time is implementing its new establishment project which it commits to for at least the next 3 years. As defined, our new school plan sets the 3 general objectives that will guide our action for the next few years: ensure quality education for all, pay attention to the development of all potentials and confront our excellence with that of others.
An outstanding school
CFBL | Collège Français Bilingue de Londres is the only French school in London which was rated “Outstanding“ by Oftsted in all standards: "Overall effectiveness", "Effectiveness of leadership and management", "Quality of teaching, learning and assessment", "Personal development, behaviour and welfare", "Outcomes for pupils". You can read the full report here.
Pupils participate in numerous diverse school projects including: Friday Jams - musical performances, School Houses – just like those at Hogwarts!, Miracle Mornings - extra sport sessions to help benefit children’s physical, mental and emotional well-being, the chance to take part in the DofE Award, Radio Récré - CFBL’s bilingual web radio, Poetry nights, the Eco-Fair, Art week, Musical Show and so much more.
A chance to work at CFBL
I am delighted to have had the privilege of starting at CFBL more than 10 years now, and to have been able to take on the roles of teacher, primary coordinator, primary deputy head and now head of the school.
This last position as Head teacher is an opportunity for me to be back in the epicentre of two school communities which have always been part of my career.
I will pursue this duty with the same consistency regarding what has always seemed fundamental to me, whatever the position I have held: maintain a close bond with the students. I will always consider a priority in the way I carry out my function: the well-being of all students, and in particular those who are the most vulnerable, as well as having as much direct contact with pupils as possible in the limited time available to me.
I remain at your disposal for any additional questions or other clarifications.
Best wishes, cordialement,
David Gassian - CFBL Headteacher
