Collège Français Bilingue de Londres (CFBL) is a private, independent school located in Kentish Town, a family-friendly neighborhood in North West London, within the borough of Camden. Established in 2011, CFBL offers French-English bilingual education to approximately 700 students between the ages of 3 and 15 years old. The diversity of the student body reflects the school's commitment to tolerance and openness, as it comprises nearly 35 different nationalities.

The school is situated near Hampstead, within easy reach of three magnificent city parks: Hampstead Heath, Primrose Hill, and Regent's Park. Additionally, CFBL is close to King's Cross St. Pancras stations, providing excellent public transport connectivity. A large French community in the Camden area enables new families to integrate seamlessly into the neighborhood.

CFBL is accredited as outstanding in every field by Ofsted and has obtained "homologation" from the French Ministry of Education, which accredits the school's compliance with the French curriculum. CFBL follows the French curriculum as set out by the French Éducation Nationale, aiming to foster academic excellence while delivering a bilingual, multicultural education.

At the end of their schooling at CFBL, students typically transition to a French lycée in London (the Lycée International Winston Churchill, the Lycée Charles de Gaulle), or alternative schools in France or overseas. Some students join the English educational system. The school's management is managed by the Headteacher, who chairs the process for pupils' admission in accordance with the French education community's plans.

CFBL's primary goals are to provide students with the best of French and British educational cultures and to prepare them for life in the modern world. The school cultivates bilingualism, foreign language teaching, and an extensive extracurricular offering, fostering students' individual support and continual innovation.
