Every child has something special inside. British schools establish what it is and actively encourage the development of skills and talents of every individual.

Your choice of school

Time spent at a British school is a marvellous opportunity for your child. You can choose for him or her to attend:


Preparatory School up to ages 11, 12 or 13. Some ‘Prep’ Schools are attached to a Senior School and most pupils stay on to the senior school. Others are ‘stand alone’ Prep Schools and will guide pupils to apply to the most suitable Senior Schools anywhere across the country.


Senior School from age 11 or 12 (usually only for girls) or age 13 (girls and boys)

If a pupil starts at a Prep School, he or she will usually take national exams called Common Entrance, in order to move to the Senior School of their choice.  Some students may also be entered for Scholarship exams.


Sixth Form entry, age 16 plus

You can select:
a) a co-educational school for boys and girls
b) a girls only school
c) a boys only school
d) the area in which you would like your child to study (e.g. country/town/city and north/south of England/Wales/Scotland)

PLEASE NOTE:  Depending on your child’s level of English, you may be advised to consider a short, intensive English Summer School course or up to a year at an International Study Centre. An ISC prepares students to enter boarding schools, by teaching English and other subjects in a residential setting.

Lucullus offers specialist language teaching within Moscow, which could be an alternative to an International Study Centre.

Our consultants

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.
