Elizaveta

Elizaveta From Russia
Programme: 1 Year IGCSE Programme
School Destination: King’s Canterbury

Comments: Bishopstrow has taught me British culture and traditions as well as how to behave in and outside of the classroom. I have become a more independent person, which has given me the confidence to achieve my dream of going to King’s Canterbury. As well as learning how to play different sports like netball and hockey, which we don’t do in Russia, I have become familiar with the British system of education and its standards. Bishopstrow is not just a school, it is more like a family and staff really care about the students.

Saeid

Saied From Iran
Programme: Junior College Programme
School Destination: Le Rosey

Comments: Before I came to Bishopstrow I knew very little English but over time my English has improved greatly. I was at school with my younger brother and we have learnt to play lots of new sports, how to live away from home but more importantly we have experienced a British environment. We enjoy all our academic subjects and love all the activities and trips throughout the week. The classes are very small and this has given us the opportunity to progress academically with all the teachers supporting us.

Olenka

Olenka From Ukraine
Programme: 1 Year IGCSE Programme
School Destination: Cheltenham Ladies College

Comments: I would sincerely recommend Bishopstrow to any international student who has the chance to come and study here in the UK. It is a wonderful place. At Bishopstrow, it is possible to improve your English and your knowledge of other academic subjects as well. You will learn a lot of cultural things and will enjoy making new friends and talking to them in another language. This will make you feel very proud of yourself! The College will also help you become more independent and careful with your time. You will get the opportunity to challenge yourself in different areas, including sports and studying. The only reason not to consider Bishopstrow is if you are fearful of new adventures!
