AZBUKA Cultural Centreis for all ages, but activities are mostly aimed for children between 2-18 years old. The Club has also aspired to be a Russian and Bilingual Education Resource for the wider community.
AZBUKA staff frequently undertake external talks, presentations and short courses to support Bilingualism in the Early Years and Bilingual education. Talks and training courses (CPD) have been run in English schools and for English speaking teachers and parents.
We are happy to announce that the Azbuka International Children’s Orchestra in London will launch in the Spring Term 2022 at the Azbuka Russian-English Bilingual school in Ravenscourt Park. Azbuka is a unique educational and cultural project in the UK, the leading Russian-English bilingual school and a charitable foundation open to the wider community of families in London and beyond.
