Warwick School is one of the UK's leading and most prestigious men's schools. Here boys from around the world aged 7 to 19 years receive education (full-time and boarding). This is the oldest school of separate education in the country: the exact date of its foundation is unknown, but the first mention in the sources refers to 914.

Throughout the whole period of its existence, the institution has constantly increased, strengthened and repeatedly changed its location. Today Warwick School is located in Warwick (Warwickshire County), close to the Avon River, and occupies a vast territory of 50 acres. The ancient town of Warwick is famous for its majestic castle built in the 11th century, as well as numerous international music competitions and festivals. Many scientists and researchers are inclined to believe that it was Warwick that served as a prototype of the legendary cities of Edoras and Minas Tirith from the universe of John Tolkien (who, by the way, was married in the same city). Not far from the campusvthe railway station is located  (just 10 minutes walk), and the nearest major cities are Oxford and Birmingham, you can get to London by train - the journey will take about an hour and a half. The countryside, where school is located, allows thу foreign students to concentrate on lessons: here, boys are not distracted from learning, achieving high educational goals.

Many famous figures of art, culture, professionals of various fields of activity came out of these walls:

  • Car designer Jeffrey Healy
  • Art critic Michael Billington
  • British Parliament member Harry Greenway
  • High Court Judge David Fockett
  • Court poet and writer John Macefield and others.

In addition to providing a high quality British education, the school seeks to educate valuable and active members of society, instill in the pupils useful social skills: respect and tolerance, compassion, flexibility and at the same time firmness of character and belief, sense of responsibility, Independence, initiative. By creating a sufficiently strict academic atmosphere, a comprehensive, harmonious development of the individual is achieved: graduates demonstrate honesty, curiosity, a high level of self-discipline, wit and openness, affability, developed imagination and ingenuity. The motto of the school is the Latin expression Altiora peto, which can be translated as "I aspire higher." In 2014, Warwick School solemnly celebrated 1100 years from the date of its foundation - an extremely small number of institutions around the world will be able to boast of an equally rich history.

The school is divided into two studying blocks:

  • Junior School (7-11 years)
  • Senior School (11-18 years).
  • The total number of students reaches 1200 people:

    • 240 pupils at the lower level

           960 students at the senior level (of which 250 at the Six Form level).

    In one class, up to 20 students are usually engaged (in Six Form classes - up to 10). Students attend an average of 45 lessons per week, each of which lasts for 35 minutes.

    The institution provides a classical education of the gymnasium pattern - in the priority here mathematics and languages are: everyone can study at least 2 foreign languages, including ancient and Classic (such as Greek and Latin).

    Participants in the Six Form program follow the clear structure of the MEI (Mathematics in Education and Industry) program - this forms a flexible, step-by-step approach to the number of mathematical disciplines studied in the course and subject to examination. Also at a higher level of sophistication is taught such discipline as "Technology and Design": students regularly participate in a profile contest of the Rotary Club, receive awards and prizes, and more recently two students won the prestigious Arkwright scholarship in engineering. Innovation of the educational institution is a unique course "Science in Action", uniting three disciplines of the natural science block, it implies a huge number of practical experiments and active interaction of teachers and students from different schools. The theory here is minimized, the subject is not an examination.

    Warwick School is rightly proud of the academic successes of its graduates:

    • The vast majority of them enter the elite universities of Britain and the world (universities in Durham, Bath, Exeter, Cardiff, Bristol, Nottingham, Birmingham and Leeds)
    • 8-12 students each year enter Oxford or Cambridge
    • In 2013, 57% of the students passed the A-level exam to the A* -A score, 84% - to the score A * -B, 100% received from A * to C
    • In 2013 the results of GCSE were as follows: 41% of graduates - A*, 75% - from A* to A, 92% - from A* to B.

    Before entering, all foreign students are tested, which determines their level of language skills. If it is not sufficient to fully absorb the curriculum, a supporting language course is assigned to them for a fee.

    Lessons can be held individually and in mini-groups up to 6 people. All basic language skills are actively developing: colloquial and written speech, reading, listening. Additionally, the teacher can help to master the basic school curriculum for the rest of the subjects.

    The level of academic achievements are monitored constantly, testing is conducted regularly. Once a student reaches a sufficiently high level of language knowledge, he is transferred to a standard, general group of students. Also, during the studying on a supporting course, you can effectively prepare for the IGCSE (the discipline is "English as a foreign language") or to the IELTS test.
