Extra Curricular Activities
Do you have After School Activities?
All children from Nursery upwards can take part in our LEAP (Learning Enrichment Activity Programme). We offer a variety of activities that run every day of the week afterschool and in lunch hours. Our LEAP offering will change from term to term, and include a wide variety of music, sports and creative activities. For most activities there is no extra charge, however occasionally we bring in external contacts to provide activities that are over and above our capabilities within the school.
My child loves sports - will they be able to pursue them at The British School Warsaw?
We have specialist Physical Education (PE) teachers, and all classes have two hours of PE a week. Our school sports teams compete against other schools in Warsaw in a variety of sports. In addition, there are lots of opportunities to play different sports as part of our LEAP programme and through external groups outside of school.
What is your music programme like at The British School Warsaw?
Our children have one music class each week. From Year 2 upwards, these classes involve learning a musical instrument. We have school choirs, a Jazz Band and instrumental groups, and we have lots of music in our LEAP programme. We can also offer individual music lessons with specialist teachers. Our Music curriculum is designed in collaboaration with our global partner Juilliard, further information aobut our Julliard Music and Dance programme can be found here.
Are there any other extra-curricular activities held at your school?
In addition to the wide range of clubs and activities offered by our staff, we have a number of outside organisations that use our school as a venue outside school hours. Activities held at The British School Warsaw include activities as diverse as football, gymnastics, martial arts, drama, pottery and chess.
What sort of excursions and trips do you offer your students?
From Year 5 upwards, all students go on a residential trip within Poland each year. There are other opportunities for students to travel with the school, for example inter-school sports tournaments and Global Classroom activities. All classes have a comprehensive programme of day trips to enhance classroom learning.
How will The British School Warsaw ensure my child settles in quickly to their new school?
We are known for our warmth in welcoming new families to the school. We provide lots of information about the class and school prior to your arrival and are ready for you from your first day. We can put you in touch with a family before your child starts here, and we always arrange a ‘buddy’ for our new children.
