Applications to the international English School of Science and Technology in Lefortovo are accepted all year round and students often start during the course of the school year. There is no deadline for applications.

In order to enrol your child at ESS:

Step 1

Contact the Admissions Office by phone: +7963-976-2228 or via an e-mail: info@english-school.org.uk and inform them that you are interested in possible enrolment. We will be able to tell you about current and projected availability of places.

Step 2

Normally, families then arrange a personal visit to the school. This can be with or without children. A visit can last anything from 30 minutes to an hour.

You are welcome to arrange as many follow up visits as you like. We are happy to offer a probation day when your children can spend a day (or half a day) with their prospective class where possible.

Some families choose to take advantage of this as part of the decision making process. Others prefer to make the decision and then have their children spend time at the school to help them adjust to the planned relocation.

While most families do visit the school, this is not a condition to enrolment and interviews can be done by Skype.

Step 3

Complete the Application Form (one for each child) and submit this along with the following documents to the Admissions Office:

  • The most recent school reports (translated into English) for your child;
  • Copy of your child´s medical and immunisation record from your doctor OR medical details (filled in School’s Medical Form);
  • A copy of your child’s medical insurance;
  • A copy of your passport, a copy of your child’s passport or birth certificate;
  • A copy of your and your child’s residence registration (home address) in Moscow
  • Your child’s passport sized photograph (with the name on reverse)

We can proceed with the enrolment on the basis of electronic versions of these documents, however we will ask you to send printed signed copies for our records.

Step 4

Upon receipt of these documents from you we will prepare and sign the Educational Contract and issue an invoice for the Enrolment Fee.

If your child is starting soon after the time of Application (i.e. after the time that tuition fee invoices are issued for this period) you will also receive an invoice for the tuition fee at this time.

Upon payment of the Enrolment Fee the place is confirmed as being reserved for your child. Please note, it is not possible to reserve a place without payment of the Enrolment Fee.

Before starting at ESS

You will receive all of the practical information that you need for your child to start school by email. You will also receive an information pack by post where possible.

Finally, we understand that relocating a family and starting a new school can be an administrative challenge! Where possible we will be flexible with the above procedure. Please, just contact the admissions office if you have any questions.
