According to statistics for 2009-2013, graduates take the A-level exams to the highest A * -A scores in 55% of cases, and for further higher education choose universities Russell Goup, for example, Exeter, Leeds, Durham, Cardiff. 57% of graduates study at Russell Goup, and 6% could go to Cambridge and Oxford - this clearly demonstrates the effectiveness of the proposed academic programs and plans. The ratio of teachers to students is 1: 8, which allows each student to pay maximum attention and carefully monitor both his progress and possible difficulties, if necessary, adjusting the curriculum. In addition, the school is proud of its internationality: among foreign students there are representatives of 20 countries, that is why the institution always has a cheerful, benevolent atmosphere.
