EIFA International School

Portland Place, London, W1B 1LS


We are a welcoming and vibrant international bilingual school located in the prestigious Marylebone area in Central London. 

Our mission is to develop internationally-minded bilingual students, who will be at ease in more than one culture, communicate in more than one language, respect the views of others and understand how these are shaped. Students at all levels are called upon to think critically, creatively and inclusively by learning to observe, question, and evaluate all options before drawing conclusions.

We are home to 310 students from over 40 nationalities, and we celebrate their diversity and individuality. At the heart of our philosophy is that each student will be known personally and valued by his or her teachers and the entire school community as an individual with unique talents and abilities. In small classes, committed, passionate teachers nurture and build upon students’ strengths, and provide them support when they feel challenged. Our specialist teachers stimulate them to fulfil their sporting, creative and musical potential, which they can further develop by taking part in our exciting extra-curricular activities and community projects.

As a family of three schools – Little eifa, Junior eifa and Senior eifa – students join us at different stages of their learning journey and, up to Year 8, we accept children who have not yet mastered one of the two languages of instruction, French or English. At the start of Year 10, students may choose to follow courses leading to IGCSE examinations or opt for the French certificate, the Diplôme National du Brevet (DNB).  EIFA is a candidate school* for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme and pursuing authorisation as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.

We are happy to arrange individual visits so you can experience EIFA International School first-hand. Please call our Registrar at +44 (0)20 7637 5351 to make an appointment or e-mail registrar@eifaschool,com.

*Only schools authorised by the International Baccalaureate can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme or the IB Career-related Certificate (IBCC). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorisation will be granted.
