Impressions from a school visit

Natasha StreinNatasha Strein
Founder of ‘’Paradise’’

Royal Russell has always been patronized by someone from the royal family. Relations with the royal family surrounds the school with a half of selectness, it is not surprising that there are no problems with those who want to get here. The director of the admissions committee - Mr. Mosley - has been working here for 39 years!

An investment of £ 8 million in the construction of new residences for boys added extra points to the school. A London school with beautiful spacious rooms. Residences are ambitiously called Oxford and Cambridge. The girl’s rooms are old and dull. They are in no hurry with their renovation: there are fewer girls, and they themselves fought for gender equality!

We are invited to the tables: a solemn lunch. The deputy director at my table, a Frenchwoman, suggests “let’s be French”! It turns out that it means "let's roll." A new expression in our vocabulary. We didn’t have time to enter the school, as we had already learned something!

That would be all school inspections were held at such a pace! You walk slowly along the rustling leaves, birds are singing around, a blushing tree looks at you from the very middle of the courtyard, the church bell counts the clock. And next to him there is an English gentleman who shows, tells, jokes, opens doors, gives numerous examples from the life of his students.

It seems to me that Graham Mosely knows absolutely everything about his Royal Russell School. And no wonder. This is his fortieth year as director of the admissions committee. He saw everything and knows everything. Most importantly, he knows who is called a true student of the school. After several years, everyone turns into them. This is a certain community, friendship for life.

The school was built in the 19th century with funds from a charitable foundation, and Charles Dickens also contributed. But it was named after John Russell. By the way, the school under the patronage of Elizabeth II, she was here four times. “More than all other schools!” - remarks my guide.

Mr. Mosely calls media science a particular pride of the school. There is almost a full-fledged television studio, a recording studio, a studio for photography. Art and technological design at the highest level.

For the first time this year, the television studio will broadcast from meetings of the UN model. And every year they have a festive ceremony ending the year. Awarding for sporting achievements, educational achievements are shot by three different cameras, everything is connected all into a single broadcast. A very professional level of training for those who in the future plans to connect their live with television, production, etc. So, one Russian school graduate is an employee of a well-known Russian television company.

Royal Russel School is a large school (about 900 people study here), while the processes inside are so logically organized that everyone has enough time for everything. And enough support: educational and non-academic.

The surrounding reality is beautiful: a huge green area with many magnificent sports fields. And London - here it is! Just 20 minutes by train.

The school day comes tan end and the students stomp along the paths of the school - ordinary boys and girls, easily greet us, some are joking with adults.

The success of the students is impressive: the project on photography (A-Level exam) draws on a full-fledged exhibition of the photographer.

Special attention deserves technical equipment. Mac computers, because it is the technology of the future, the strongest branch of computer science. One of the students even received a scholarship of 10,000 pounds for admission to the university. By the way, she is Russian. Ours are very strong in this area.
