"This is just a brief note to let you know that Blythe received an A* in her French GCSE. I wanted to personally thank you for your good efforts and support in making this result possible. Considering that she had so much ground to cover when you began, this is an excellent result"Father of French IGCSE student
"Couldn't recommend Maria more. We worked together for two years on my Spanish and French A Level, and she helped me get the grades I didn't think were possible! She knows how to adapt her lessons to suit each student and keep them engaged and motivated. She finds the perfect balance between professional and casual, and manages to build a solid friendship with her students. Thank you Maria!"A2 Level French student

The Rise of the IB
The International Baccalaureate is now on offer at 194 schools across the UK, educating over 5000 students. The UK has happily ambled through the last half of a century with dreams that the A-Levels are the best assessment for eighteen year olds. Whilst most of us would have agreed, clearly others have been left wondering if there is a better option.
Considering UK Universities from Abroad
‘What shall I do when I leave school?’ is just one of several important questions students make during their final three years at school. But it is one that they shouldn’t feel daunted by as this is an exciting time and, typically, the final step in their formal education. The most salient point to remember is that there is a spider’s web of people from whom they can seek advice: teachers, parents, friends and even current university students.
