A word from our Founder


As parents, it is only natural to worry about your children’s education. All of us would like to give our children the best start in life by sending them to the best schools and universities. I have seen my own children grow and move from a Russian to a British education system.

It became clear after a conversation with the Registrar at Harrow School that foreign children were often unprepared, therefore unhappy, at boarding school. Their English language skills and subject-specific knowledge were often behind their peers’, due to differences in the education system, which affected their confidence. They found it difficult to adjust to the cultural traditions of Public Schools, for example the importance of teamwork through activities such as sports and drama and quickly became disheartened and homesick.

My idea to found the first British-run educational consultancy in Moscow was born out of this conversation. My aim was to create a consultancy that would prepare children and their parents for boarding school life, while providing schools with confidence that our students were well-prepared by consultants acting in the interests of each unique individual. We are not agents for schools, but consultants and representatives of families, our clients.

Newton Bright Educational Consultants was founded to provide students and parents with expert advice on the best route in education. We strive to get to know our students as well as possible, so that we are better able to ensure they thrive in their new environment. Our service is tailored to each student’s strengths and weaknesses, which we identify on a week-long assessment programme in the UK.

We are here to support you and your children throughout their academic careers. Our philosophy is that academic success is not the only goal – each child must be happy and fulfilled.
