The British School, Warsaw recognizes the importance of helping our students to prepare for the future. Members of staff are always available to offer support and advice and a system of mentoring and guidance provided by staff ensures our students make the right choices.
At the age of 16 students can take part in the Duke of Edinburgh's Award, developing community awareness, building on interpersonal skills and having fun while learning about the world around them. It is our aim to give students real-world experience, placing them in situations where they will develop the necessary skills to accomplish tasks successfully in the future. In Year 11 students are given guidance during the process of selecting their IB subjects and they can also undertake additional personal career profiling (Futurewise).
University application process is the next big step for our IB students. We understand the importance of this big decision, therefore it is imperative that we do all we can to help them. We make Higher Education information accessible to all students and their families including a special Career and University evening. Centigrade tests help our Year 12 students in deciding about their careers and our Higher Education Advisers are here to help our students make the right career and degree choices for their future. From Year 12 onwards the students have the opportunity to engage with a number of visiting universities from around the world. This helps the students with their course research and personal suitability. At the end of Year 12 students have regular individual meetings with tutors and university advisers preparing personal statements, writing application essays and completing other requirements of the application process.
