|Lycee International de Londres Winston Churchill today|
The building includes the refurbished Brent Town Hall (before the merger of Wembley and Willesden, Wembley Town Hall) and a new block for primary pupils. The school's website shows the completed site, complete with running track where the Council car park used to be.
One can't but notice that the building looks far more substantial than many recent new school builds in the borough.
The school is due to open on September 3rd 2015 for Years 1 to 11 with Years 12 and 13 starting in subsequent academic years.
The school will offer a bilingual education with 'an Anglo Saxon' ethos and will be fee paying:
2015- 2016 school fees will be as follows:
- Maternelle: £10,470 / year
- Elementaire: £9,770 / year
- Collège: £9,770 / year
- Lycée: £10,470 / year
These fees include lunch, insurance and, from Primary onwards, an appropriate tablet device.

There is a non-refundable £90 pre-registration fee per pupil.
The school has published a welcoming letter to parents on its website:If you are offered a place, you will receive an email explaining in detail the acceptance procedure and the Terms and Conditions. A first registration fee of £1,200 per pupil, as well as an advance payment of £1,000 on the first term fees, must be paid to secure the place. These fees are non-refundable.
It is my pleasure and privilege to welcome you to the Lycée International de Londres. Our school aims to create a nurturing and vibrant environment where students and adults thrive sharing the joys of teaching and learning alike. The Lycée provides an international education based on the French National Curriculum leading to the French Baccalaureate.
Rooted in the tradition of French educational excellence, and aiming to offer the most modern pedagogical approaches, our ethos reflects our commitment to foster the development of the whole child along with collective achievement through mutual respect and dedication.Our campus encompasses newly refurbished and purpose built buildings surrounded by large outdoor leisure and sports facilities on five acres of land. These beautiful surroundings and brand new teaching spaces will offer the school’s 1,100 pupils a wonderful campus style environment. The Lycée also houses a large gymnasium, a bright and spacious library, state-of-the-art science labs, a music room and a drama studio: we want to offer the best a modern school can offer today.
The website includes a video extolling the virtues of blingualism/multilingualism:
We hope you and your children will join our community, share our values and adhere to our ethos. We look forward to welcoming our first classes Autumn 2015.
It is a great honour for me to be entrusted with the mission to build and lead, with your support, such a vibrant community of learners.
