Our daughter was born in London and went through the English primary school system (state school). Going to EIFA was an amazing transition to secondary for her in September 2020. Until then, we had managed her learning of the French language via Saturday schools, private classes and, later on, CNED tuition, so joining EIFA then was a step up into a fully integrated bilingual education. The fact that kids have uneven level of French or English was handled well by the school and never at the expense of academic progress. In hindsight, probably an asset to be able to collaborate with diverse profiles. Overall, EIFA offers the best of the IB curriculum with the added bonus of bilingualism, opening even more opportunities down the line to go back to a particular educational system (whether UK, French or international).
