Our aims & objectives
The main goal of the Russian School is to work with children with
Russian-speaking ethnic background, and also any Russian learning
children in Bristol and surrounding, helping them to acquire the
language of their forefathers and to discover the culture and traditions
of Russian people.
The Russian School offers quality education through a series of
interactive engaging games, with a flexible approach to developing and
improving language abilities for children of different ages and various
levels of comfort with Russian.
Each and every child can have an engaging and productive experience
at the School: we offer classes tailored to individual groups of
students, as well as interactive educational activities for toddlers.
School- age children range from 4-16 years old compose the Junior,
Intermediate and Senior classes. Their lessons introduce the Russian
alphabet, learning to read and write in the Russian language, the basics
of grammar, and discovery of Russian literary classics, as well as help
in preparing for GCSE and A-level exams.
To enrich the children's acquaintance with the Russian language, the
School offers singing lessons, the basics of rhetoric and drama, as well
as classes in art and dance.
The curriculum of the School for Junior classes is based on the
course by Dr Nina Vlasova-"Russian as a foreign language" which was
developed in Israel for the children of Russian immigrants.

We are very aware of the limited amount of time dedicated to weekend
classes. This is precisely why lessons in the Russian School work on an
individual approach depending on the habits and needs of each and every
student. The parents play an integral role in the process, and their
support is invaluable in helping the child acquire and develop
grammatically advanced language skills. The family circle is an
important and imperative component of such education.
The School sets the pupils appropriate homework, while the parents
are provided with kind recommendations as to how the child can
effectively increase their knowledge and develop their new skills.
Each of the teachers at the Russian School RUBRIC have the highest
teaching credentials and substantial classroom experience. We are
rightly proud of the high professionalism and success of our staff.
It is our belief that a fluency in another language gives any person
obvious advantages in the global world we live in. Bilingual habits have
proven positive effects in developing memory, quick thinking, reaction,
mathematical understanding and logic. Well developed bilingual children
have shown a trait of doing better in school than their peers, and have
a greater capacity to grasp abstract sciences, literature, and of
course - other foreign languages.
For the parents, our school is much more than a positive experience
of developing their children's culture. It also serves as a meeting
place, an opportunity to find new friends, partake in information
exchange with like-minded parents, and a chance to enjoy pleasant
conversation over a relaxed cup of coffee.
