What is the level of English required for a child to obtain a place in the school?

For children in the Early Years Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception), previous knowledge of English is not required. From Year 1 onwards, we conduct an interview with your child in English. From Year 3 to Year 6, we test the level of English (oral and written) prior to the child´s acceptance in the school to make sure that the child will be comfortable in the class.

Do you study any other languages in school?

Yes, as part of the curriculum, we offer Spanish from Nursery to Year 6 as well as compulsory Polish lessons.

Are all of your teachers native speakers?

Yes, they are all native level English speaking teachers, qualified and experienced within the National Curriculum for England.

Does the school have children from other nationalities?
Yes, we offer an international environment, welcoming students from all nationalities. We currently have over 15 different nationalities at our school.
What is the age range you currently have in your school?

We currently enrol pupils from Nursery up to Year 6. In September 2020, we will be continuing all the way to Year 9 at our Piaseczno Campus.

What is the school schedule?

In Early Years and Primary School classes start at 09:00 and finish at 15:30.

Does the school offer after school activities?

Yes, we believe that there are social, physical and psychological advantages for children who participate in after-school activities. At Thames British School Warsaw, we offer some extracurricular activities that are for free, which are delivered by our native English speaking teachers and others that are provided by external professionals for an additional cost.
We like to offer a variety of activities to children in order that they can try different things and further develop their skills and knowledge.
The activities that we currently offer to our students can be found here.

Are meals cooked at school?
Yes, all meals are freshly cooked in the school. We provide a healthy and balanced diet.
The children are also provided with a snack in the morning and after school for those children staying for after school care. The snack consists of items such as fruit, yoghurt, sandwiches and fruit juice.
Is there a school bus service?

Yes. We provide transportation from an external transportation service which collects children at the beginning of the day and drops them off after the extracurricular activities are completed. You can get more details about transport here.

Are there any activities for parents at the school?
Not at the moment, however, we believe in building a community where parents and staff collaborate to offer the best opportunities for our students. For this reason, we are looking into creating a PTA as well as co-operating with local organisations to encourage parents to become part of a local and friendly community.
