Eight in a row! Ecole Jeannine Manuel in Paris is ranked best school in France by L’Internaute for the eighth consecutive year while our sister school based in Lille comes third in a ranking by L’Express. Congratulations to our fellow students, teachers and staff for this outstanding achievement!
Read the full statement from Ecole Jeannine Manuel below:
En ces temps difficiles, il nous semble plus que jamais nécessaire de partager et de célébrer ensemble les bonnes nouvelles. Premier lycée de France pour la huitième année consécutive au classement de L’Internaute publié aujourd’hui, l’École Jeannine Manuel Paris confirme son excellence. Son école sœur de Lille conforte quant à elle sa troisième place dans le palmarès de L’Express.
Au-delà des classements, propres à chaque média, ces résultats témoignent à la fois de l’excellence pédagogique et de la capacité de l’école à accompagner avec bienveillance l’ensemble de ses élèves jusqu’au Baccalauréat. Cela est d’autant plus vrai dans les circonstances exceptionnelles que nous traversons actuellement. Individuellement et collectivement, nos équipes déploient depuis plusieurs jours des trésors d’imagination, d’organisation et de souplesse pour permettre à tous nos établissements de fonctionner autrement.
Avec toute l’humilité qu’implique un tel contexte, nous avons des raisons d’être fiers aujourd’hui : fiers du talent de nos élèves, remarquables de créativité et de curiosité, fiers de l’engagement de l’ensemble de nos équipes pédagogiques qui partagent leur savoir avec passion et n’ont de cesse de faire progresser les élèves tout au long de leur scolarité, fiers enfin de l’esprit de solidarité et d’entraide que nous avons pu voir émerger au cours des derniers mois au sein de notre communauté.
As a UNESCO school, we are very happy to celebrate the International Day of Education with the launch of our Readathon in support of the Chifundo Foundation, a charity dedicated to educating children in Malawi. We are particularly proud and honoured to be supporting the Chifundo Foundation as it was created by the family of our very own Mr Cogavin, teacher of English. We can’t wait to see how many books you will read!Read More
We were very pleased to receive our STARS silver certificate over the holiday. STARS is TfL’s accreditation scheme for London schools and nurseries and has the objective to inspire young Londoners to travel to school sustainably, actively, responsibly and safely by championing walking, scooting and cycling, and encouraging a better understanding of the benefits of public and shared transport.
STARS supports pupils’ wellbeing, helps to reduce congestion around the school and improves road safety and air quality.
We were awarded Silver Status in recognition of our efforts to promote sustainable and active travel to school over the past school year and are looking to progress on to Gold Status this year.
From hands up surveys, to pedestrian skills training, to charity work in the community and presentations to our local borough travel officers, pupils and staff have been taking part in a variety of activities to improve their awareness and understanding of how they can be more sustainable, active, responsible and safe.
We continue our efforts to achieve Gold Status!Read More
Last week, pupils in Year 7 took a trip to the Royal Society of Chemistry for an event entitled “1001 Inventions: Journeys from Alchemy to Chemistry”. Through various talks and practical experiments, they discovered how the science we now know as Chemistry evolved throughout the ages. Highlights of the trip included workshops on making oobleck – a cornstarch-based substance that acts like a liquid when being poured, but like a solid when a force is acting on it – and a workshop on soap and perfume making. The visit was a fantastic opportunity for pupils to learn about chemistry whilst also finding out about the history of science. In the words of the students: “We all loved it and we all came out with a different perspective on science.” Thank you to science teachers Ms. Mummery and Mr. Turner for organising!Read More
On a chilly autumn evening, the 38 members of our school choir, ranging from ages 7 to 13, joined the vibrant University College London student choir to take part in the popular festive tradition of carol singing.
Gathered at the foot of Bedford Square’s sparkling lit tree, their angelic acapella voices filled the air and spread festive fun and cheer all through the Bloomsbury area.
Comforted by a warm cup of mulled wine or hot chocolate, the delighted audience of parents, staff, neighbours and friends softly bobbed their heads to the sounds of ‘Up On the Housetop’ and even joined in for the chorus of ‘Silent Night’!
A magical and unmissable annual tradition.Read More
A very big thank you to Transport for London for talking to our Primary School students about safety on the road and on public transport! TfL’s STARS programme inspires young Londoners to travel to school sustainably, actively, responsibly and safely – we will be hosting more events as the year goes on!
The judges have spoken! After months of reading and discussing the books shortlisted by the Royal Society for their Young People’s Book Prize, our students had their final judging meeting this week. The Royal Society will use their final scores and comments to decide which book will win the 2019 edition of the prize – we can’t wait to find out the final result!Read More

A huge thank you to the Metropolitan Police who came to visit our Reception pupils yesterday! The students were very excited to meet Tempest and Phoenix and had plenty of questions for the police officers. They now know all about the mounted police. Thank you to all those who made this possible!
“En dehors de ses excellents résultats, qu’est-ce qui fait la renommée de votre école? Son ouverture et les valeurs sur lesquelles elle est bâtie, ainsi que l’épanouissement de nos élèves qui développent ici leur autonomie et leur esprit critique !”

“From an early age, all children are taught to share. Parents teach siblings to share. Teachers model and support sharing among classmates at school…Faced with the idea of sharing the planet, our young authors have looked at the simple – sharing with a friend – and the complex – sharing resources across borders.”
This year, the theme for Ecole Jeannine Manuel’s 8th edition of the Printemps des Jeunes Auteurs was “Sharing our Planet”. We are extremely proud of the ten students from our school whose texts were included in the publication.
