Hurtwood House School reviews

Vitalina P.

My daughter studies second year here, finishes the program for high school students (A-level).

Hurtwood House School was chosen by a combination of factors. We came to the agency for the first time, we did not know where we would study. There are good conditions here, a lot of subjects to study and a fairly reasonable price. Yes, and to London is relatively close - one can say, the "London area".

She studies at the boarding school. There are a lot of useful sports studios: children do not get bored and stay behind the books for more than they should be. 

As for disadvantages: the high cost of additional textbooks (the basic course is included in the price, but for more effective study you need a lot of additional benefits). We will not attribute the high complexity and insufficient free time to shortcomings. But if you are looking for an option to make it easier and have more rest - Hurtwood House School will not work, it is very demanding on its students.
