Attention deserves a legend about the foundation of the school: at the end of the XIV century, literally on the road in the small town of Sevenoks, an infant was discovered. Earlier foundlings were named after the city in which he was found - so there was William Sevenouk, who grew up in an ambitious and talented person: he became mayor of London, made friends with King Henry. The latter and entrusted him to found a shelter and school in the same place where William was found and acquired a new name. Today the school is considered to be one of the oldest in England and the UK, faithfully honors old traditions and the memory of centuries, not forgetting to introduce modern technologies and latest trends into the education process.

Graduates without special difficulties enter the best universities around the world:

  • Oxford

The average score for the IB program is 40 points - it's almost 10 points higher than the world average level, according to statistics! And in 2013, 14 students showed the best possible result, earning a maximum of 45 points for IB exams.

Constantine R.

I study IB program at Sevenoaks School. I chose this program as it's recognized everywhere and decided to get a higher education in the USA, at the University of Pennsylvania. IB program is accepted around the world and is highly rated.

Since I already studied in England for a long time, I had no difficulties with the language barrier. Study abroad, especially in the UK, is amazing. There is a lot of independence here - you can not shirk, because you can not pass the exams and will be expelled. Teachers are very attentive: on the one hand they give us a great opportunity for independence, for self-expression, and on the other hand, they are always ready to help, explain once again, to give a personal lesson or some additional activities. I really like lessons on the theory of knowledge (this is an obligatory subject on IB): in addition to the fact that the course itself is quite interesting, I think it will be very useful at the university.

Thanks to the company Smapse, which organized my studying! Everything was done at the highest level and in a short time! Special thanks for your patience with the consulate: I could not decide when it would be convenient for me to come to the visa application, and the consultants shown great patience with me.))
