Every parent dreams of his dear son or sweetheart daughter to have an excellent education. But, unfortunately, the Russian educational system does not always guarantee realization of this dream. Therefore, more and more families send their children to get some sense into their heads abroad. Most often the choice falls on the UK and this is not surprising as the British are known not only for their conservatism, but also a great contribution to the global science, history and culture. As for their private schools, they are known for unusual educational methodologies. After all, education is based not only on teenager’s interests, but also features of their character.
Little Englishmen most often study at day schools or boarding houses. In the first case, they attend it only for classes and then go home. In the second, children not only learn, but also live at school grounds. Representatives of other countries prefer to send their children to boarding schools as students are under the control of adults all the time there. The children also get plenty of additional training and opportunities – for example, various sports clubs, discussion clubs, visiting the library at any time and much more.
Children of 7 to 11 visit the so-called Preparatory School. Among others, compulsory subjects include math and English. Children can also study other subjects (e.g. geography, music, history). To enroll in such a school, a child must pass tests in compulsory subjects, reading and oral presentation. Preparatory school prepares children for enrolling in a senior school, which usually admits children of 11-13 years old. Over the years, the number of subjects increases as the child decides on his future profession and starts preparing for entering a university. At the age of 14, students choose subjects they need to pass the GCSE. Usually, a child is asked to choose 9-12 subjects for study. Compulsory secondary education ends at the age of about 16. Teenagers, who want to enter a university, continue to study the special A-Level program. It features studying 3-4 subjects required for entry to the desired faculty.
There is the International Study Centre for residents of other countries, who want to get an education in private schools, but not ready for it yet. They can improve their English there and better learn principles of studying other subjects. Studying at such centers takes from three months to two years, after that a teenager can continue studying at a private school or immediately enter a university.
If you want to send your child to study abroad, make sure that they have successfully pass the tests. We will be happy to help you to prepare your child for enrolling in a private school. To make it easier for them to adapt, we suggest improving English at special courses. Also, do not forget that many private schools have summer training programs for children who want to study at their schools.
