Russian Community Groups and Russian Schools in Scotland


There is a range of Russian Saturday schools operating in all major cities in Scotland. Operating as charities that provide Russian language and literature classes for the children from the Russian and mixed families, these schools are also excellent focal points for the Russian-speaking community in Scotland.

Apart from the language tuition the schools' curriculum normally includes other disciplines taught in Russian as well as extra-curriculum activities including dancing and singing.

Some schools also provide classes for adults.
