Les Petits Ecoliers has been under the current management since April 2012. We are three working mums who are very enthusiastic about having the opportunity to run the school and make it a success for both the parents and the children. Christelle is our headteacher and during the week is a language teacher at Stormont School. Annelaure and Caroline handle the administration, finance, contracts and library.

As mums of bilingual children attending the school, we have seen first-hand how our children benefited from the teaching. We believe the school is important in helping and encouraging our children to speak French and learn about its rich culture and history.

The school has attracted bilingual families from all around Hertfordshire and we have grown to accommodate approximately 200 bilingual children. We also offer classes to non-French-speaking parents.

We are always open to new initiatives, so if you have ideas or comments on what we can do to improve our offering, please get in touch by email!

Headmistress and French teacher Christelle


Director and Teacher

I am from a village near La Rochelle. I have extensive experience as a French teacher and have worked in both the USA and the UK. I'm married with two children. I currently work as a French teacher at Stormont School and was previously languages coordinator at St Albans High School for Girls.



I am French and British and grew up in both France and the UK. I was brought up in a bilingual environment and educated at the International Lycée of St-Germain-en-Laye near Paris. Because of this experience, it is important to me to provide the same opportunity for my two boys. I have lived in the UK since 1997 and work as an actuary (assessing the financial consequences of risks using mathematical modelling, statistics and financial theory) with a specialism in longevity risk.

Director Caroline



I'm from Castres in South West France. I have both French and Swiss nationalities. I studied in Manchester for one year through a European university exchange programme before moving to London and finally to St Albans. I'm married with two children. I work as a head of global mobility (I advise my company on all things relating to employees' expatriation).
