The Ecole Française de Bristol has been providing high-quality teaching through its team of native French teachers to pupils in Bristol for more than 35 years. 

Based in Stanton Road in Southmead the school offers French lessons, tailored to the needs of the children who may attend the School from the age of two and a half in order to develop their speaking, reading and writing skills to fluent levels by the end of the French “cycle élémentaire” (UK Primary School stage). 

Headmistress, Monique Pellois, said: “As a primary school teacher, I acquired considerable experience teaching in France before having the privilege of taking up the position of Headmistress at the Ecole Française de Bristol in 2003.

“Teaching means the world to me and I am extremely proud to have established, over the last ten years, along with my valued colleagues, a school that provides a warm welcome to every child. We provide high level teaching of both spoken and written French and keep regular communication and close-knit relations with families.”

The School encourages children to gain better knowledge and understanding both of French culture and other cultures. Pupils are given the opportunity to develop and flourish intellectually, educationally, and socially within welcoming French cultural surroundings.

Monique added: “It is so gratifying to see the school developing and expanding the way it is. Last month, we opened our doors to over one hundred pupils and we look forward to pressing ahead with new and exciting projects and enhancing the services we offer, all delivered thanks to enthusiastic cooperation between the members of our team, the Committee, and Friends of the School.”
