British Lyceum in Moscow British Lyceum Moscow was founded in 2015 by the University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE). The purpose of creating such a school is the formation of an educational environment that will allow foreign and Russian students to prepare for successful entry into prestigious universities in Britain and other European countries.
As an authoritative source in the field of European education, the Center identifies the GCSE and A-Level system as the most effective in preparing students for entry into the leading prestigious universities in the UK and other countries. The institution offers its students four levels of training (I, II, III, IV) depending on the age and training load.
To its educators, the British Lyceum in Moscow provides methodological assistance and professional support through CIE's educational resources. Teachers can improve their qualifications through online courses, as well as through trainings and seminars organized in Cambridge itself.
The elementary school in British Lyceum Moscow includes two levels: for children 6-7 years (1-2 grade) and for students from 7 to 11 years (grades 3-6). Students from the first stage are immersed in the English-speaking environment through training in English and foreign fellow students. The training program includes the following disciplines:
The curriculum of the first stage is aimed at honing the skills of reading, writing and general subjects. At the second stage, more complex topics are introduced in the disciplines studied, and the attention of the children at this stage is focused on the development of research skills + preparation for the transition to secondary school.
The program is aimed at increasing the knowledge of the English language in different aspects of the language: grammar, vocabulary, speech, writing and not only. Also on this course, the academic program introduces the academic subjects necessary for the transition to the educational program GSCE. The training ends with the Common Entrance Examination exam, the successful surrender of which is necessary for transfer to the senior school.
General Certificate of Secondary Education - a document on secondary education of a foreign sample, which confirms the required level of knowledge for a particular program. The program implies two levels of training - I and II.
Within two years, students 14-16 years of age receive a theoretical basis for a particular subject in combination with independent work and practice. In the list of disciplines studied (at least 7 subjects) there are those for which exams are required: English, mathematics, natural sciences, modern foreign language. The remaining disciplines vary depending on the degree.
The AS course is part of the British A-Level training program. Training on the AS course takes 1 year. The A-Level program does not have compulsory subjects, but according to the requirements of universities, students should choose 3-4 subjects from any area. The British Lyceum offers a choice of the following disciplines:
At the A2 course students pass after the completion of the AS program. Students aged 16 to 18 years after completing the GCSE course switch to A-levels, where they study for two more years (AS + A2). At this stage, students also choose 3-4 disciplines from the list. Teachers of the school can help in determining the choice of subjects for pupils and parents, taking into account the interests of the child, knowledge of the subject, motivation, perspective choice and other factors.
The qualifications awarded to the students of British Lyceum Moscow include not only learning the language and academic subjects, but also the development of each student in a sporting or creative way:
