About

In June 2018 Parliamentary Review invited Angloslav International to act as a representative for 2018/2019 and to share our best practice as a learning tool to individuals within the public and private education sector. Development of this project drew our attention to the whole period of our operation since the company was established back in 1993 as a Guardianship agency for international students.

For over two decades, our team has helped nurture the next generation. Initially known as AngloSlav Education, the company is now named Scion Mastery to better reflect our approach. A scion is an inheritor, not of wealth, but of learning – each of our international students embraces their responsibility to achieve the best possible education and harness their innate ability.

We work with families from Russia, Europe, the Middle East and North and South America, giving both parents and students the peace of mind that their educational and personal development needs are being met. With a skilled and dedicated team, Scion Mastery offers professional and diligent support in negotiating the intricacies of the British school and university system, and in making sure students reach their full potential.

We have helped hundreds of students and parents achieve their academic and professional goals since our inception and maintain a close relationship with our clients, both past and present.

‘Working together with parents, students and schools, Scion Mastery creates a pyramid, at the apex of which lies success.’

Our Philosophy

Scion Mastery creates an approach tailored to the individual. Using creative, fun and unusual solutions, we challenge traditional, didactic routes to success. We design an individual career trajectory according to a child’s current achievements, inspiration and family traditions. We seek the impetus, unique to each young person, that will allow them to enjoy the process of achieving their goals and desires.

Academic coaching, career planning, guardianship, personal development and leadership training, all combine to allow parents and students to be secure in the knowledge that Scion Mastery will create a nurturing environment.

With a comprehensive knowledge of the British education system of prestigious private schools and leading universities, our highly qualified staff work with students not only at school, graduate and post-graduate level, but also into their subsequent professional careers to maintain the practical and emotional skills required in a rapidly changing world.

A Noble Shoot Grafted for Life

It is vital that parents feel comfortable in their decision and confident that their children will receive the support they require while at school. It is a legal requirement that any overseas pupil studying in the United Kingdom has a guardian.

Selective School Placement

The majority of fee-paying independent schools and non-fee-paying grammar schools in Britain have a competitive admissions process. In secondary education, this process commonly has three stages known as 11+ (Year 7), 13+ (Year 9) and 16+ (Sixth Form) Entry. Applications for places should be made one to three years prior to entry, with tests run a year before. However, as a general rule, it is recommended to apply as early as possible, and each school will have their own enrolment system meaning dates may vary. For instance, Eton College requires children to be registered before they are 10 years and 6 months old.

While it is possible to enter schools at any time, Scion Mastery would advocate joining at the stages indicated. This allows your child time to acclimatise to their new environment, hone their language skills if required, and adjust to the GCSE or A-Level course. There is some flexibility in the admission process for international students. For instance, starting Year 9 at the age of 14, would allow more time to learn the language before beginning the GCSE course.

Scion Mastery can advise on every step of an admissions process that can initially appear daunting.

After passing our academic assessment and interview with our advisors while in your home country Scion Mastery will offer you five to ten schools that we feel will suit your ambitions and abilities. We suggest choosing three or four schools from this list and can advise on your choices. We will work with those schools and determine the chances of your child being offered a place. We will organise school visits, entry tests and interviews.

Once you have selected the school that best suits your child, Scion Mastery can help prepare for entrance exams and interviews. These usually occur from November to January before Year 9 and cover verbal and non-verbal reasoning, maths and English, followed by interviews for successful applicants. Many establishments, such as Eton College and Westminster School, also use their own individually designed aptitude tests. For A-Level and International Baccalaureate (IB) entry subject specific entry tests may be set in order to evaluate the ability of a student to cope with the rigour of an A-Level programme. Depending on the test results and students’ career choices, schools may advise on changing areas of study.

The initial consultation with the leading Career Strategist is required prior the Entry process to identify students’ needs and to prepare the trajectory of our future work together.

11+ (Year 7) Entry

For candidates wishing to enter the first year of secondary education (Year 7) applications should be made a year prior to entry (Year 6). Enrolment examinations (January, Year 6) will be required in Maths, English and Verbal Reasoning.

13+ (Year 9) Entry

GCSE courses are high pressure and academically rigorous, and grades achieved remain a life-long indicator of your child’s ability and performance in their chosen subjects.
Therefore, it is best for them to enter school in Year 9, so they can fully adjust to their new environment, choose their subjects and prepare for exams at the end of Year 11. Applications for Year 9 Entry are made in the beginning of Year 8.

16+ (Sixth Form) Entry

For students hoping to join a school to sit A-Level exams, entry to Sixth Form (Year 12) will depend heavily on GCSE results. If they are an international student, the respective equivalent to GCSEs will be required. Applications to Sixth Form are made at the beginning of Year 11.

University Selective Entry Training (UNISET)

Although academic grades remain essential for admission to degree courses, universities are also increasingly considering the personality and extra-curricular activities of students, together with what they will contribute to university life.

A crucial element for successful university admission is an excellent personal statement and a confident interview, allowing students to convey their passion, intelligence and individuality. Scion Mastery exclusively organises the University Selective Entry Training (UNISET) residential weekend each September. Using stimulating and thought-provoking exercises to improve these skills in advance of university application deadlines, Scion Mastery also offers advice on how to navigate the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS).

The weekend focuses on three aspects of the admissions process:

Choosing your University and your Course

We use interactive workshops to explore your choice of academic field, current experience and areas for further research. We set ambitious, yet achievable targets for your remaining school year, your mock and final exams.

Writing a Personal Statement

Scion Mastery has created a bespoke personal statement writing technique deploying life scripts to help students to create their own personal academic story. Critically review your personal statement through discussions with our teaching staff and your peers. Write your statement highlighting your individual qualities, effectively express your interest in your area of study, and learn to avoid common mistakes made in personal statements.

Interview and Communication Skills

Whether you are an introvert or extrovert, we can help develop your confidence and improve your skills at interview. We organise mock interviews run by our tutors, all of whom attended the UK’s best universities including Oxford, Cambridge, UCL and Imperial College.

UNISET has a marked effect on results, with those who attended in Year 11 and Year 12 achieving significantly improved grades. Attending UNISET at this early stage in their academic career drives students to analyse what they want from university and their future professional career. UNISET compels students to see clearly the impact of their grades on both university entry and on their future job prospects.

Please contact us to find out more details about the forthcoming trainings and available places.

University Entrance (Undergraduate and postgraduate programmes)

Scion Mastery can advise on which undergraduate and postgraduate course might be suitable for your experience and ability. It is important to be aware of the range and variety of degree courses, and how your choice can influence your subsequent career path.

Be it a BA, BSc or Master’s Degree, Scion Mastery can guide you through the process of applying for university through the UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service) system, with additional advice on Oxbridge applications, composing personal statements and conducting mock interviews in preparation for university entrance.

Scion Mastery also runs residential courses, designed to coincide with the Easter and Summer School holidays. Packed with activities, these hugely popular courses are held on university campuses and afford a taste of students’ life.

Academic Coaching and Tuition

Scion Mastery draws a distinction between tuition and academic coaching. An individual tutor can be a crucial aid in completing a single educational goal, such as a specific examination. An academic coaching can apply a range of techniques to ensure children become as effective as possible at learning throughout their school career.

Our tutors are selected to meet the individual needs of students and establish a close relationship throughout the academic year, working distantly outside of term time. Tutors incorporate work undertaken at school as a foundation upon which to build using coaching techniques from the business and enterprise worlds.

Scion Mastery academic coaching develops long-term habits that are not necessarily taught at school, allowing students to manage even the most complex of challenges. We give them the ability to identify the steps needed to complete a project, establish the order in which to tackle them, how much time might be required, and how to ensure the consistency and quality of this work. A tutor will help a student complete their homework – an academic coach gives the skills to work effectively alone: a benefit to them throughout their life.

Life Coaching & Further Career Development

Designed to allow you to develop the skills to lead a successful life on yourown terms, life coaching improves the quality of your personal and businessrelationships. Life coaching can help you make better decisions and ensure betterresults, making you the author of your own destiny and able to fulfil your potential.

This engaging, informative and practical course is designed to inspire a positive outlook to deal with any situation and build a healthy prosperous relationship with your children. The course draws on leading names in this field such as Virginia Satir, Adele Faber, Elaine Mazlish, Tony Wolf, Suzanne Franks, Mia Kelmer Pringle, Salvador Minuchin, Napoleon Hill and Esther Perel.

Character Development

Scion Mastery is the only company in this field to offer students courses in character development as part of our guardianship services. We place students in mock situations they might encounter in the real world, in order to give them the opportunity to develop skills such as how to stay focussed, how to identify their values, learning the importance of working hard and team work, and, crucially, confidence and discipline. The course also gives students vital real-world skills such as financial management and mortgages, preparing them for life beyond education.

Professional vs. Educational career - differences and nuance

It is easy to make a division between learning at school or university and learning at work – Scion Mastery believes in the importance of life-long learning in any environment. An educational career to post-graduate degree level requires strategic planning to build a solid foundation for your subsequent professional life.

A professional career can be developed continually by broadening your knowledge within your field and expanding your personal skills. A career for life is also no longer common and a working life can now encompass a number of different arenas. It might take a decade to reach the peak of that field and may require a return to school or university to attain further qualifications, underlining that an academic and professional career are indistinguishable.
