About the educational program: To complete the school education, students take exams for 3-4 disciplines (Pre-U or A-level programs). Pre-U, developed by Cambridge experts, according to the teachers of the school is a full-fledged and promising alternative to the A-level. Exams are seldom, that is, the students have time to more fully and qualitatively learn the material, on the other hand, the A-level advantageously differs in compulsory writing of its own research project and the course "Global Perspectives". Such additions to the main program not only deepen knowledge, but also help to better prepare for further university studies.

List of Pre-U exams consist of 18 subjects:

  • Geography;
  • Biology;
  • The photo art;
  • Drama and theater studies;
  • Cooking and food production technology;
  • Textiles and fashion;
  • Business fundamentals;
  • Higher mathematics;
  • Dance;
  • Sports science;
  • Design and technology;
  • English literature;
  • History of art;
  • Critical thinking;
  • Government and politics;
  • Physical Culture;
  • Art;
  • ICTs;
  • Housekeeping;
  • Religious Studies;
  • Economics;
  • Music;
  • Latin language;
  • History;
  • Foreign languages:
    • Greek;
    • Spanish;
    • French;
    • Russian;
    • Italian;
    • Chinese;
    • Japanese;
    • German.

Additionally, you can take a culinary course (5 months) at the legendary school Leiths School of food and wine. If any subject or topic causes difficulties, it is always possible to add supportive and corrective activities to the personal curriculum (similar to the supporting English language course for foreign students).
