The GCSE certificate is highly valued around the world, as subjects are studied in depth, at a sophisticated level. Among studied disciplines there are both compulsory (foreign languages, mathematics and natural sciences), and elective, which students choose independently, being guided by personal interests, propensities and requirements of the future profession and specialty.
Tuition fees on a daily basis are CHF 30000-55000 per academic year, at the boarding school - CHF 60000-85000 per academic year (the price varies depending on the chosen program).
The independent private school Shiplake College (Shipleyk College) accepts for boys from 11 to 18 years of age and girls for the high school program (16-18 years). Here there is both a daytime form of education and a boarding house (from 13 to 18 years, only for boys), the total number of students is 400 people. The school is located in the county of Oxfordshire, a small town of Henley-on-Teems: the journey to London takes only about an hour. It is a cozy, picturesque area on the river bank - the total campus area reaches 18 hectares.
Shiplake College was founded in 1959 as a men's school, and it was not until 1999 that girls began to take girls exclusively to the graduate, senior Sixth Form program. Each child here is perceived as an independent person and at the same time as a member of one large family: students can always rely on help, advice, friendly advice or helpful advice. Here, active teaching, constant involvement of students in the learning process, live and direct communication, try to get as far as possible from the traditional format of boring monotonous lectures.
A large number of sports teams and creative, musical groups, choirs and orchestras work here, various concerts and events, competitions and relay races are constantly arranged. This helps to educate the students in the team spirit and the feeling of a comradely shoulder, self-confidence and one's own strength, show their own talents and abilities, develop a natural giftedness.
