LinguaPlay-Beckenham was founded in 2008 and was the first LinguaPlay school. Until 2013, the school was located in Bromley, and it was during these years that we developed and tested our approach and curricula to children’s bilingualism.

LinguaPlay-Beckenham today is an effective system of teaching Russian language to children from early childhood to successful completion of GCSE and A-Level qualifications. We develop not only the language skills, but reveal the creative and academic potential of the child. Together with the parents, we are looking for an individual approach to each student.

Today, in the senior classes of our school, there are students that have been studying with us since the age of 3-4 years old. Their example shows that developed bilingualism reveals the personal potential of children in an amazing way.

We achieve such success thanks to specially designed Russian language teaching materials and the use of creative techniques. The classically presented at school grammar lessons organically coexist with creative reading, discussions, debates and the theatre studio. Artistic creativity plays an essential role in our pedagogical approach.

LinguaPlay-Beckenham operates from St Mary’s Primary School on Saturdays. The health and safety of children is a top priority. The school is registered with OFSTED.
