We are the largest Russian Exam Centre in London,  with a current 100% A*-A pass rate for students taught through Znaniye

year on year, the top results in the country.

Not only are we here to prepare the students, but we also act as a consultation and guidance team for

the student and family throughout the entire process.

Our GCSE course thoroughly prepares students to sit the GCSE Edexcel Pearson examinations in the UK. We are an Edexcel accredited school and official exam centre. Students can additionally opt to take the Russian GCSE exam at their own school and simply prepare with us!

We also accept students from other schools to sit their exams at our centre.

Students who decide to take their exams with Znaniye must first sit a mock examination, this takes place in November and January, and allows us to alter the course to each student and ensure that each student is able to receive the best grade possible. The course ensures each student is prepared for each component of the exam:  Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening/Understanding, through various methods such as historical texts, videos, essays, text review and more.

My two children studied GCSE and "A" level at Znaniye Russian school. For both exams they achieved top grades. From knowing little of Russian literature they now have a sound knowledge of some of the Russian literary greats. What was particularly impressive that the "A" course also covered aspects of Russian history, geography & socio-economics.  The children found the teachers easy to follow, friendly and motivating. All in all I think Znaniye has done a great job .

This 2-year course was designed specifically to prepare students for the A Level (A2 or GCE) exam. This course is in depth and provides the students with a much deeper level of understanding of not only Russian language, grammar and complex speech, but also culture, history and more. We do now however have options for express courses, and online only courses as well

The Russian A-level can be taken with or without previous Russian Examinations in GCSE level. Our new program was developed in response to the changes in the A-level Edexcel examination which were introduced by Edexcel in 2017

Students who decide to take their exams with Znaniye must first sit a mock examination, this takes place in November and January. Students from other centres or schools can again request to sit their exams at our centre.



At Znaniye we also offer private tuition. Families may opt for this type of teaching if they would prefer a one-on-one teaching style or are unable to attend weekend classes, these can be in person or online for our global students.

If parents or tutors would like to prepare their students from home they can book a consultation to find out more about exam preparation and studies. 

Consultations are available to asses a students current level of Russian, to then asses and plan the best route to exam preparation.
