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 seven years later - and they still own and run the business together. Elena has a degree in journalism and 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 staff members include English, Chinese and Russian speaking account managers all of whom studied in the UK and have extensive knowledge and experience working in educational sector. They look after the company’s main international markets as well as UK based clients.

Our SEN consultancy team advises on both special schools, and the mainstream schools with good SEN support, from reception through to the specialist colleges for 19+.

At specialist music, dance or performing arts schools, the arts aren't optional extras. They’re intrinsic to the school curriculum. Students are expected to fit in high level training and hours of practice alongside a full academic provision.
It's a lot to ask any child to take on, but for those with exceptional performing ability this kind of education can be transformative.
There are currently around 163 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 in what 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.
