Case: Kostya, selecting preparatory school Wellesley in England, entering Harrow School in England

When Kostya was living in Moscow, his father tried unsuccessfully for years to get him interested in chess. Kostya obediently attended chess classes twice a week, however his enthusiasm for the game never grew.

When Kostya entered an English preparatory school called Wellesly House, he joined the chess club. The club quickly realised Kostya’s talents for the game and sent him to the regional competitions and then onto the English Chess Championship for children. This motivated Kostya to improve and develop his skills, and he even began asking his father to buy computer training programs and books on chess.

After Wellesly School Kostya, as well as 21 other classmates, went to Harrow school. Here he became head of the chess club at the age of 16.

Ever since I have been working with families who have decided to send their children to study in England I have made the journey with each and every one of them from the choice of a school to the choice of university and then their career. Many of my students have their own families now. One of my greatest joys has been to see how the British school system changes these children, how they start to believe in themselves and become more responsible and mature.
