The golden standard of British education, the A-level program is designed for 2 academic years and is offered to students 16-18 years old: according to statistics, this is the most popular in the UK training option in the graduating classes of Sixth Form,
The program is academically complex and intensive: subjects are studied thoroughly, in-depth, almost at the university level. All subjects for personal curriculum students choose on their own: for the first year (AS-level) is 4-5 disciplines, the second of which remains only 3-4. This option helps to focus on studying the most necessary, priority subjects: as a rule, at the stage of the Sixth Form, schoolchildren are already well aware of what faculty and specialty they plan to do. The A-level certificate is highly valued: it allows students to enter even the best, most elite and privileged universities without additional entrance examinations and examinations.
Subjects for the curriculum can be selected from the following extensive list:
Each student at the A-level receives his mentor - one curator for 10 students. He is constantly in contact with his group, monitors the progress of students and helps with the solution of various situations, controls the process of preparing documents and submitting them to the university.

Private independent school Rochester Independent College works for schoolchildren 11-18 years: full board is available from 15 years, and partial - from 11 years. Founded in 1984, the school aims to fundamentally differ from prudish, overly strict British schools. It surprises schoolchildren from all over the world with their free, creative, fruitful atmosphere, where everyone can show unique talents and abilities.
So, here students turn to teachers by name, there is no strict form or fixed religious affiliation, and many lessons are held outdoors - the school has for this purpose a large number of gardens, glades, arbours and shady groves. There are no strict rules for admission and complex entrance examinations, but there is a system of individual mentoring and supervision: teachers and educators tend to be "on the same wavelength" with their pupils and, together with them, to strive for a successful future as versatile, harmonious individuals. The administration of Rochester Independent College really understands its students!
As a plus, the small size of the school also works: there are only about 270-300 people studying here, and the classes include up to 8 (!) Schoolchildren - this is one of the unique indicators not only in Britain, but all over the world. Everyone knows each other in person and by name - both children and staff - constantly interact and work on a single goal. Foreigners here are approximately 15%: they are provided with supportive English language courses (ESL), staff assistance and active joint activities with the British, which help the children to quickly join the cultural, social and academic environment + a separate team of personal tutors. The English course includes the preparation for the IELTS exam (if they did not pass it early): listening, writing, reading, speaking + test exams and constant testing-tests make the course extraordinarily productive, and the opportunity to pass the exam directly to the walls of Rochester Independent College - more convenient.
