We are proud to announce that we are now an authorised IB World School for the Diploma Programme. The IB programme is recognised for its academic rigour and emphasis on personal development.
Pupils entering Sixth Form will be offered a choice between the IB and the French baccalaureate (British Section OIB).
Both tracks have coexisted successfully at Ecole Jeannine Manuel in Paris for over thirty years and both are highly valued by the world’s most prestigious universities. Pupils will choose the baccalaureate track that best fits their talents and higher education aspirations.
For Pauline Prévot, Head of School, “this new accreditation recognises the school’s commitment to providing an outstanding, world-class education for our students and paves the way for the school’s planned extension.Read More
Yesterday, our Year 7s took a trip to Great Missenden to visit the Roald Dahl museum as part of their study of creative writing and literature. They visited the shed where the great man wrote his most famous children’s books, explored the sites he used as inspiration for his stories in the village as well as coming up with some story ideas of their own!
As part of their studies of First World War poetry, and to coincide with Remembrance events at school, we took all our Year 9s to the newly renovated National Army Museum in Chelsea on the 13th of November. Pupils got the chance to handle genuine artefacts from real First World War soldiers and were lucky enough to do a poetry workshop based around the objects with a published poet and a poet who was also a serving soldier!
As millions of people commemorated the centenary of the end of the First World War on the 11th November 2018, École Jeannine Manuel played host to a series of acknowledgements honouring those around the world who took part in the Great War. From Nursery to Year 11, our pupils engaged in heartfelt tributes around the theme of Remembrance such as poppy and bleuet making, British and French poetry readings and a dramatic performance.
Similar commemorations took place at our sister schools across the Channel:
We are pleased to announce that we will be holding our very first Charity Dinner at the National History Museum on Saturday 11th May 2019.
On October 10th, our Year 8 pupils visited Burnham Beeches Wood in Buckinghamshire as part of their study of geology in science. They explored the woodlands and observed geological soil layering, ancient sites of clay mining for bricks, quagmires and areas where sinkholes exist!
In addition, pupils learned about pollarding trees and how the woods are being managed and preserved for future generations. They took soil samples at different locations around the trail and these will be analysed back in school for their pH, texture, and profile. This information will then be related to the dominant trees found growing in each sampled area.
A challenging and exciting day rooted in fun!Read More
