The Good Schools Guide review of UK Study Centre

Our tuition service grew out of our school placement service, which has been the main area of our work since our inception in 2006,’ says founder Elena Adamova, who adds that they also offer a guardianship service. In fact, it was because the tuition side took off that her co-founder Alex Nanian switched his role from part-time to full-time five years later - and they still own and run the business together. Elena has a Russian degree in journalism and a CIM diploma in marketing, together with experience in PR, while Alex – who has a BA in Economics and an MBA from the USA, as well as teaching experience in both marketing and economics – has worked in both business development and educational publishing. The three other staff members are Aizhan Tampayeva, business development manager, Alina Ryzhonkova, account manager, and Marianna Slivnitskaya, head of guardianship. At the time of our visit, UKSC were also looking to recruit a sixth team member to focus exclusively on tutoring as the last person in the role had recently left to pursue her PhD studies in Cambridge.

      There are currently around 164 state funded grammar schools located in 36 English local authorities, with around 167,000 pupils between them. There are a further 69 grammar schools in Northern Ireland, but none in Wales or Scotland. Almost half of these are considered 'selective authorities' (eg Kent and Buckinghamshire), where around one in five local children are selected for grammar school entry based on ability. The others are areas such as Barnet or Kingston, with only a few grammar schools. How to find a state grammar school Word of warning: not all selective grammar schools have 'grammar' in their…

  • Schools for children with performing arts talents

    As proud parents, we all know our children are unique. They're smarter than anyone else's, funnier, certainly more attractive, better behaved and above all bursting with the kind of talent that would leave Daniel Radcliffe or Charlotte Church standing. And sometimes, just sometimes, parental pride is justified.
