Ecole Maternelle homologuée à Londres / An accredited French preschool in London

Welcome to
Le Hérisson School

An education based on the French curriculum and valuing open-mindedness toward other cultures.

Founded in 1989, Le Hérisson is a French preschool based in West London and accredited by the French ministry for education. The school has signed a partnership agreement with AEFE (Agence pour l’Enseignement Français à l’Étranger), the official network of French international schools worldwide.

Le Hérisson teaches the French maternelle curriculum in the French language. Although many of our pupils are French or from French speaking families, all nationalities are welcome and will receive a sound French education at the school. We welcome up to 76 children between the ages of 2 to 6 years old, who are allocated to 4 classes, depending on their dates of birth.

The school is located in the lower ground floor of the Methodist Church on Rivercourt road, in the heart of West London. The school offers spacious indoor accomodation and the children benefit from regular excursions to the nearby green spaces of Ravenscourt Park.
