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
What difference between IB and A-Levels?
We are often asked why we offer A Level as opposed to the International Baccalaureate (IB). The most obvious answer is that we will always do what is best for our student cohort and we believe that the A Level curriculum best meets the requirements of our students.
For A Level most students study 4 or 5 AS Levels in the Year 12, reducing to 3 or 4 in the Year 13. Students will study 6 subjects over the two 6th Form years, 3 at Higher Level and 3 at Standard Level. In addition, each student will complete an Extended Essay, a Theory of Knowledge course (TOK) and the CAS programme. (Creativity, Action and Service).
What foreign languages are taught in EIS?
Across all key stages Russian language is taught as second language for not-Russian students. Also French courses are available from Year 3 (7 years old). Spanish can be offered as extra curricular activity. Find out, click on Languages programmes

What the difference between Russian Curriculum and English National Curriculum?
British education is constructed in such a way that by the time of entering a higher education institution, the student has already all necessary knowledge and skills for study according to the program of the higher education.
On it is general to the accepted statement, the British education system reminds a pyramid where
- The basis is represented by elementary grades in which children are given basic knowledge in all range of objects,
- The middle – high school at which a small set of obligatory objects is combined with objects of the choice, that is objects the most interesting to the school student,
- The top is a pre-university preparation which includes deep studying only of a small number of objects which will become specialization of the student at university. Thanks to such approach in teaching school students already classes gain at 10-13 rather profound knowledge within the future specialty and gain the academic skills necessary for study in higher education institution. Transfer to university for the British school students is painless, practically without demanding adaptation neither in educational process, nor in student's community.
Other important difference of two approaches in training – the emphasis for independent work which is the cornerstone of British education. The British school students since the earliest years are focused on independent obtaining information, whether it be the analysis of thematic works in library, studying of sources in the multimedia center or work on the scientific project. Such technique of training is supported further and in higher education institution.
Does English International School qualify as a Russian school?
No. Although we teach the Russian Language to every year group, we do not teach the Russian National Curriculum. Our schools are formally recognised by the Russian Ministry of Education.
What is the bullying policy in your school?
Englsih International School regards bullying as a serious infringement of individual rights and a serious threat to the self-esteem and self-confidence of targeted pupil(s). Therefore it does not tolerate bullying of any kind.
Every report of bullying is treated seriously and dealt with, having due regard for the wellbeing of the targeted pupil(s) and the perpetrator(s).
An 'Anti-Bullying Team', made up of all staff members, exists to cultivate an environment free from bullying. The immediate priority, should a bullying incident occur, is ending the bullying, (thereby protecting the person(s) being targeted) and resolving the issues and restoring the relationships involved insofar as is practicable using a “Reform, not Blame” approach.
How can parents meet teachers?
There are formal meetings between parents and teachers at least three times in each school year. However, you can make an appointment to see your child’s Class Teacher at any mutually convenient time. English International School strongly encourages a open-door communication between students, parents, teaching staff and management.

How long does it take to do a homework?
We believe that the setting of regular homework from Year 1 helps to engender a spirit of enquiry, curiosity and investigation in students. The homework set is designed to enhance the work we do at school by giving students an opportunity to prepare, research, reflect, learn and complete various tasks. Homework will not normally be used to introduce new concepts or skills.
Years 1 and 2 - Approximately one hour per week (Excluding reading)
Years 3 and 4 - 30 minutes per evening (Excluding reading)
Years 5 and 6 - 45-60 minutes per evening (Excluding reading)
Years 7 and 8 - 45-90 minutes per evening
Year 9 – 60-120 minutes per evening
Years 10 and 11 – 90-150 minutes per evening (Excluding reading)
A Level - Key Stage 5 students (Years 12 and 13) are not included in the schedule, but are expected to spend at least one hour on independent study for each hour of contact (lesson) time they have in school, which will include homework and independent study tasks set by their teachers.
