Curriculum Overview

The English International School, Moscow curriculum is based on the English National Curriculum, enhanced to meet the needs of the expatriate and local population. 

Essentially this means that in addition to the core curriculum, there is an opportunity for pupils to study Russian. Expatriate students are introduced to the Russian language and fluent Russian speakers can maintain familiarity with their native language. All pupils learn about the culture, history and geography of Russia.

The English National Curriculum is a set of subjects and standards used by schools in England and by British style international schools.  It covers what subjects are taught and the standards children should reach in each subject.

English as an Additional Language

At English International School, Moscow West we provide an English as an Additional Language (EAL) programme for pupils whose first language is not English and who require additional help with the English language in order to access the mainstream curriculum successfully. There is an extra charge for this programme.

The EAL program operates across all Key Stages and at different levels to cater for a pupil’s individual needs and requirements. New students are assessed on arrival at the school to determine their level of English and are grouped accordingly.

Exisiting students are assessed at the start of the academic year to determine the group they will join.

During the school year pupils are assessed regularly and have an opportunity either to move to a higher group or leave EAL altogether.

We specialise in supporting children whose first language isn't English

Frequently Asked Questions

Who owns and manages English International School, Moscow East?

Orbital Education Ltd owns EIS Moscow. Orbital was founded in 2005 by Kevin McNeany, who was formerly the founder of Nord Anglia Education PLC. Several other Orbital executives have long associations with Kevin and collaborated with him in the founding of upwards of 20 international schools in Europe and Asia for Nord Anglia and Orbital. The first international school was founded in Warsaw in 1991.

Can pupils transfer to UK schools or other international schools?

Yes.  As the National Curriculum is well defined, transfer to any other British style school is straight forward. In our experience, pupils transfer without difficulty to other international schools and to schools in the home country. The School actively helps parents in this transfer process by providing full transcripts enabling children to integrate smoothly into their new school.

Does English International School, Moscow East welcome learners of English?

Of course! Younger children need not have any English.  As they get nearer to the examination years, they require progressively stronger English skills. We welcome a minority of non-Anglophones in every class.

Does English International School, Moscow East qualify as a Russian school?

No. Although we teach the Russian Language to every year group, we do not teach the Russian National Curriculum and are thus not a local Russian school. 

Will my children achieve their full potential?

Yes. We aim to expand all our pupils’ horizons, raise their expectations and give them the skills and knowledge to be ready for their next challenge. They should be responsible, caring, high achieving and ambitious, ready to make a positive contribution to society. Your children will be supported throughout by their teachers, tutor and Principal to achieve their full potential.
