Gresham's School reviews


A little-known school, but we really liked it, the daughter has been studying for the third year.

Note that the school is a bit “out of the way”, far from more or less large cities, but on the seashore. On the one hand, it’s a long way to get to some civilization (including London airports), on the other hand, children are completely immersed in this whole atmosphere, not distracted.

Ohhhhh a lot of options for sports, the British are really obsessed with this. In general, the school works according to traditional principles - all the time children are busy, add. a bunch of classes, the curriculum is rich. But we wanted this, so there was no discontent. I like our curator, Alicia, a very polite and friendly lady, she helps my daughter a lot and answers us all the questions promptly.
