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
We are delighted to announce that our first cohort of pupils have achieved brilliant IGCSE results. All pupils sat IGCSEs and 100% obtained A*-C marks with A* or A achieved by 58% for First Language English and 67% for English Literature. These outstanding results mean that we are ranked #4 amongst small independent schools throughout the UK! Congratulations to all the pupils and their teachers.

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.

Un immense bravo aux collégiens et enseignants qui ont participé au concours de la Flamme de l’Egalité organisé par l’Education Nationale pour promouvoir la recherche autour du thème de l’esclavage. Leur projet, un récit du Chemin de Fer Clandestin raconté sur Twitter, a été retenu pour une rubrique spéciale sur le combat mené par les femmes alors qu’elles étaient esclaves. Le jury a notamment salué “la grande originalité du compte Twitter créé, la mise en relation de l’histoire de l’esclavage, et la mise en avant de personnalités historiques” au sein de leur projet. Bravo à tous !

Un beau moment d’apprentissage pour tous !Read More
September 2018: a ‘murder’ is committed within the walls of Ecole Jeannine Manuel in Paris. Following the discovery of the body, a team of Year 11s from our schools in London and Paris are tasked with identifying the culprit! After nearly nine months of close scientific collaboration with their Parisian peers, our students headed over to Paris to close the case.
Since September, pupils had been using forensic techniques, such as fingerprinting, blood typing, Henssge Nomogram or hair sample analysis, to whittle down the original list of 15 suspects. Throughout the year, students in Paris and London worked together to collate data from their experiments and reach conclusions. By early June, the number of suspects had been reduced to three and the students travelled to Paris to carry out the final stage in their research together. Using DNA Gel Electrophoresis to analyse DNA samples recovered from the crime scene, they were able to clearly identify the killer.
For Science Teacher Mr Smyth, “this project was an excellent opportunity for Year 11 pupils to become familiar with some of the forensic techniques used in crime labs around the world, and to collaborate with students at Ecole Jeannine Manuel in Paris.”
