St. Clare's Oxford Private School reviews

Vasily L. - a review about St. Petersburg. Clare's Oxford

My daughter studies in St. Petersburg. Clare's Oxford : we are happy with the choice of the school, and the work of specialists Smapse. We will note the most important details, because in almost three years they have accumulated a lot:

  • We were not imposed any school - really helped to choose, and not something to shove, with what they have a special advantageous contract. We chose a long time, read a mountain of reviews, and in the end are really happy with the choice.
  • All the documents were helped us to do it quickly, at the set time, all the work was clear and competent. The visa was delayed a little, but here we understand that even the best agent is powerless - only from the visa center and the consulate depends. But our manager kept in contact with the school administration, and they "waited for us"
  • There are a few Russian children at school. This is good for English training, and in general for broadening the horizons. There are many French girls in the residence, on her biological and chemical classes there are a lot of guys from Asia, China, and the sportsmen are all British and Canadians. We believe that this is good, especially since further study is also planned abroad.
  • Very correct, polite and attentive administration of the school. We are regularly sent data sheets and characteristics, any recommendations from teachers, ask if we want to clarify something or something to talk about. In general, we have a problemless child, but in the autumn we want to come with her and already talk with everyone personally - just in the format of the excursion.

Well, as usual, the classroom is equipped with a campus, beautiful, clean, security systems are new, the rooms for living are beautiful - well, this is the British hostels, the whole world famous, here we have no doubt.

My husband and I heard a lot about all the advantages of classical English education, but something was always in the way: there was no money, then there was work and then something else.

About a year ago, my husband was seriously promoted, so it was possible to offer Alina (this is our daughter, she is 16), studying in England. She at us very much loves languages, but at school with it or this affairs are not so. She was happy, but said that she would be very bored. Chosen the school St. Clairs in Oxford. Teachers are wonderful, there is a large library, excellent living conditions and a good prospect for further admission to one of the universities. We do not regret it, although we had to spend it.

Elena Lobintseva (daughter of Lara), St. Clare's Oxford, IB

I express my gratitude to SMAPSE for choosing a program for my daughter, organizing her training and my trip to visit on vacation.

Lara is happy with the school. The IB program is ideal for itself, calls intelligence to the university. Life in Oxford has borne fruit. My daughter, who was not enthusiastic about the offer to study in England, is now intensively preparing to enter a local prestigious university.
