Admissions Procedure

Thames British School Warsaw is open for admissions the whole year round. The admissions process is designed to ensure that pupils joining the school will be able to cope with the National Curriculum for England and enjoy their learning experience at our school. All parents and pupils are invited to meet the Head of Admissions who personally oversees every application with the support of the teaching staff.

We also host Open Days where you can come and visit us along with your child and get a feel for our school to see if it is the right place for you.

The Process of Admitting Pupils

Firstly, we always invite any interested parents and pupils to our school as we believe it speaks for itself. This can be requested via the Request a Visit link found below or by calling the following numbers: For Polish: +48 666 924 205 For English: +48 574 797 778. Our phones are attended from Monday to Friday between 9.00am and 5.00pm.

Then, you can fill in our Student Enrolment Form either in person or directly from the link found below and send it back to us at admissions@thamesbritishschool.pl.

From that point on, our Head of Admissions will proceed with your application and get in touch with you regarding our entry requirements.

Entry Requirements

For Early Years, we invite both yourself and your child to come visit the school. Children applying for Nursery and Reception places are not required to have any prior knowledge of English.

From Year 1 onwards, we conduct an interview with your child to assess their level of English. From Year 3 to Year 6, children will have to take a written English test. We will also require copies of their reports from their previous schools as well as a letter of recommendation from their previous teacher.

After conducting the admissions procedure, we will confirm a place for your child at our school and send you the necessary documentation if successful. This will need to be signed and returned to the Head of Admissions.

You will then receive more information about your child’s place at our school shortly before they start. This ensures they are fully prepared for their new school life here at Thames British School Warsaw.

Thames British School Warsaw is not affiliated with any other international school in Poland and in particular we are not connected to ISW or the Nord Anglia School in Warsaw.
