Rugby School for A-level education has developed three comprehensive training systems and provided the possibility of combining two major programs for the preparation of applicants. Complexes offer an academic course for study with different levels of complexity. Students can choose 3 - 5 AS / Pre-U subjects.
One of the complexes stipulates the conduct of a full-scale study and the preparation of scientific work with the justification of the goals. It is this variant with Extended Project that schoolchildren are most often preferred, since higher schools pay attention to the ability of the entrant to search for the actual problem, to develop methods, technologies and means for solving it, and to conduct an exciting presentation.
The second academic year also includes 3-4 A-Level or Pre-U disciplines and the writing of a new scientific study. You can also choose one more AS level object.
The school accepts the sixth form after taking examinations in 5 disciplines (level B) according to GCSE requirements. In the certificate of incomplete secondary education received by the student, the items he plans to attend at the A-Level must be indicated. For natural science subjects and mathematics, level A is required. To those who have studied music, Rugby School also sets strict requirements: assessing the level of A, playing a musical instrument and gaining industry theoretical knowledge for more than five years.
In addition to the standard list of disciplines studied, consisting of physics, general and higher mathematics, chemistry and physical education (all AS or Pre-U), lessons are provided for the specialized subjects of the Pre-U program. Rugby School purposely prepares professionals in the arts and clothing design sectors for Pre-U. The acquisition of historical knowledge is possible at the level of AS (on the subject "Ancient World") and the general level (the political structure of countries, the significance of personality under revolutions, waging wars and religious trends). Students are provided with a choice of five foreign languages, geography, design, modern technology and media sphere, photography and theater, philosophy and graphic skill.
The subjects studied can be expanded at the expense of the French language (AS / A2 levels); Japanese or Russian languages of the GCSE standard; History of arts, English, math, music, or design (all AS); Italian language (GCSE and AS standard).
The classic boarding school for Marlborough College (Marlborough College) was founded in 1843 to train boys from the clergy families (Anglican Church). Today it is a selective but friendly school designed for 870 people aged 13-18: only 2% of students study on day time, the rest at boarding school; about a third of the students are girls. Students represent both British subjects and diverse countries of the world - there are no differences and children of any color, nationality and religion are accepted.
The history of Marlborough College is full of interesting events and facts. So, literally next door from the ancient city there is a large mound: according to legend, here lies the great magician Merlin, the tutor of King Arthur, who is lulled by the wicked witch Morgana. In the XI century on this hill stood the royal castle - and now the territory is occupied by the campus of the college. Today, the school's director is Jonathan Leigh, and the institution itself is a member of the Conference of School Directors (HMC) and the Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL).
The specialization of the college lies in the field of classical education: it is an in-depth, fundamental training in mathematics, English and foreign languages, as well as subjects of the aesthetic cycle. The effectiveness of the curriculum is confirmed by the results of the examinations (we will submit statistics for 2013):
