Wembley : Pose de la premiere pierre

18 Jun 2014

Lycée International de Londres
 
Laying of the foundation stone
 
Tuesday 17 June 2014, 5pm – Forty Lane, Wembley
 
 
On Tuesday 17 June, the French Ambassador to the United Kingdom, Bernard Emié, laid the foundation stone of the new Lycée international de Londres in Wembley, northwest London. The ceremony was attended by Cllr Muhammed Butt, Leader of the Council, the French Consul General, the School Director, representatives of parents and several other key stakeholders.
 
 
About the Lycée International de Londres
 
The Lycée International de Londres (LIL), an 1,100 pupil French international school, will open its doors in the former Brent Town Hall on Forty Lane in Wembley in September 2015. LIL is a much needed addition to the oversubscribed network of French schools in London. Indeed, hundreds of children in London are turned down for spaces in the existing French schools each year with a particular backlog of demands at Years 7 and 11. The capacity crisis for French schools in London has existed for years with a group established to find solutions to the problem having been created in 2008. 
 
Currently, there are only two French secondary schools in London. The Lycee Charles de Gaulle (CDG) in South Kensington which has been there since 1915 and the College Francais Bilingue de Londres (CFBL) which opened in Kentish Town in 2011 as a partial abatement of the issue. CDG has over 3,500 pupils from nursery to year 13 spread over four sites. The CFBL has 700 students from year 1 through 10. Both secondary schools and the six other French primary schools in London are oversubscribed with substantial waiting lists, a problem which the opening of LIL is expected to relieve.
 
LILs’ beautiful campus setting is set over 5 acres with 12,000 square meters of newly refurbished and purpose built teaching space for the three levels of schooling. The school will house pupils from years 1 through 13. Primary school students will make up 170 of the 1100 pupil population with 360 students in “college” (years 7 to 10) and 540 in “Lycee” (years 11 to 13). LILs’ campus will include multiple onsite sports facilities such as two external sports pitches and a gymnasium. LIL will be unique amongst French schools in London to have these features onsite.
 
Bouygues UK are undertaking the refurbishment of the listed Town Hall building and the construction of the new adjacent teaching block. The construction works are well under way and the opening in September 2015 is anticipated with growing levels of excitement amongst the French community in London.
