Impressions from a school visit

Natasha StreinNatasha Strein
Founder of ‘’Paradise’’

The gloomy brick building of the Cardiff Sixth Form College inspires depression ... but we in Britain believe: the main thing is not the form, but the content!

We wander through beautiful classrooms and laboratories. Nothing interesting: neither your paintings, nor fleshy guys on the rugby field, and there is no field ... but there is study, and it is here itself a work of art.

For admission you need 6-7 grades of "A *". Or according to the new system - solid “8” and “9”. Like a snake, I stretch my neck. They captured my attention! Does it happen?! Apparently, yes, if as many as 320 people study at this factory of super-excellent students!
