As part of the Great London Fire topic, our Primary children visited the Old English Court Museum in Moscow. It is one of the oldest buildings in Moscow built as a private home for a wealthy merchant in the Zaryadie region (famous as the centre of trade in medieval Moscow) and later became home of the first foreign representation in the Russian capital.
Our Year 10 students sat their Mock Examinations in Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Humanities, English and modern languages in January 2018. At a strong school like ours where the class sizes are small and the teachers are experienced and dedicated, our students are academically at least half a year ahead of their age-group, that is why our Y10 students will sit 3 out of 8 (I)GCSE tests a year earlier.
Last year our Christmas Activities were open by the traditional Decoration Day. This is a popular event amongst our pupils when they start a variety of interesting and exciting activities with a “Christmas feel”.
The International School of Science and Technology has played host to several motion pictures, documentaries, and commercials throughout its history. With its unique traditional English school design, large classrooms, picturesque surroundings and knowledgeable staff, the ESS is a popular location for filming and expert interviews.
The educational process consists of lots of factors that directly affect the students. These factors witnessed great change in the 21st Century and thus what was considered a good education 50 years ago is not sufficient for success in an economy driven by innovation and knowledge.
Our students had a very busy but exciting time in December 2017 as the festive season was approaching very fast and they had a lot to do.
Dear Parents and Friends,
In December 2017 Mr. Ross Hunter, our school’s Headmaster and the international education expert, had an interesting conversation with John Harrison from the Capital Ideas about the secondary education and international schools in Russia. Some of the shooting was done in our international English School of Science and Technology (ESS) in Lefortovo. We’ve decided to publish a short fragment of this interview where you can watch Mr. Hunter speaking about schooling in Russia.
Recently John Harrison from the Capital Ideas posted a new issue of this very popular video magazine about life and business in Russia. The issue is devoted to the secondary education in Moscow. Part of the shooting was done in the international English School of Science and Technology (ESS), which is one of the best international schools in Moscow. We are publishing some of the highlights of this issue where you can see our school, some of our teachers and a short interview with Mr. Ross Hunter, ESS Headmaster.
