How there was an idea of carrying out competition on receiving a grant on training at Adcote school?
Many years among pupils of Adcote school the Ukrainian schoolgirls study.
As the principal, I paid attention to high academic successes of our schoolgirls from Ukraine, an active way of life, a wide range of interests and amazing working capacity.
Besides, girls make a huge contribution to school life – for us it means the interesting communication, new ideas in implementation of projects, acquaintance to new culture. After all creation of the many-sided and interesting environment of communication is an integral part of a good education.
Many years we watch how training at Adcote school gives excellent signal to start in life for our graduates, we sincerely rejoice for them and we do everything from us depending that the bigger number of girls has an opportunity to use all advantages of quality education at traditional school board.

The school constantly develops, there are new scientific laboratories and studios. Good tradition are also musical concerts and theatrical performances participation in which accept practically all schoolgirls.
