In Westonbirt School our daughter is studying, and we are ready to leave a positive response about both the school and the company that organized our trip - Smapse.
If you want to send a child to study abroad - forget about independence and do not think that you can do everything yourself. Save time and effort, contact professionals! During the preparation of the trip, there were so many subtleties that we ourselves could not have done it right - and we were very glad that Smapse was chosen as our agent. We really liked the approach of specialists: very sensitive, pleasant in communication guys, unobtrusive and very professional, educated. Answered affably to all our questions, we chose the options for us, under our requests. And the enrollment in general was free, which surprised us a lot (expecting a large commission, even already put aside money for this): Smapse does not work as intermediaries, but as partners of foreign schools, that's why they do not take money from us. We paid only for the translation of documents and the booking of air tickets - but that's fine: after all, these are additional, non-mandatory services, and they costed perfectly according to Moscow standards.
The daughter's school really likes - the only thing she asks for the upper grades (now she's in high school) is to move her closer to London. It's probably nice for us to be in a pastoral village, and young people appreciate more big busy cities. When we look at universities and senior schools, probably, we will really pick up something more capital, although it will be more expensive. Another plus Westonbirt School - a fairly sparing cost of training: for Russia of course it seems a lot, but among British schools is normal. At the same time, we got acquainted with the ratings - Westonbirt School shows itself very well, and the daughter's teaching reports are excellent, we are sure that it will get good education.
