Please find below information regarding preparation for the new school year, including our orientation days, uniforms, lunch cards, Leap Club and school communication.
Orientation Day: Friday 30th August
Orientation days are an opportunity for new parents and students to meet their new class teachers, to look around the school, sort out uniform, meet the PTA and other key staff members and generally get prepared for the start of term on Monday 2 September.
The orientation day timings are as follows:
Limanowskiego Campus (Year 2-13)
9.00am – 1.00pm (you will choose an allocated appointment time)
Dabrowskiego Campus (Pre-Nursery- Year 1)
9.00am-3.00pm (you will choose an allocated appointment time)
Our location of our campuses are here.
On Friday 23rd August you will receive a link to your email allowing you to book an appointment with your child’s class teacher/form tutor. This will be an opportunity to find out more about your child’s class/year group and opportunity to ask any further questions. Please help us by coming only at your allocated time as booked.
Students do not need to wear uniform for the orientation days – any sensible clothes are fine.
Students in Pre-IB will not need to make an appointment. Instead, parents and students of this year group are invited to go directly to the IB Building and gather in the Learning Centre – near the IB Reception for 9.00am. They will then have a short group presentation before going with their Form Tutor to have a more informal discussion, meet and mingle.

School lunch cards can be purchased in our dining hall on the orientation day. Students are allocated a smart card and parents are asked to pay the lunch fees at the start of each term. This can be topped up during the school term. Please be aware that our catering company accepts cash and credit/debit cards. Primary students do not keep their own cards; these are held in the dining hall and payments are deducted automatically according to their daily attendance. Students can also bring their own packed lunch if they wish.
The Parent and Teachers Association will be on hand to meet and welcome you and your family and let you know about their events throughout the year and how to get involved.
Leap Clubs (After School activities)
We want to provide all our students with the chance to extend their learning beyond the formal curriculum and so have created a wide range of extra-curricular activities that students can get involved in, LEAP club registrations will open after the academic year commences on the week beginning 10th September, parents will be sent a link to our CHQ sign up site and will be able to select options available and confirmation will be sent shortly after.
Our Music extra-curricular programme offering one-to-one music tuition for students at The British School Warsaw. The school has brought together some of Poland’s finest musicians to provide a comprehensive scheme of instrumental and vocal teaching.
Our qualified instrumental and voice teachers set individual courses of study and may recommend students sit the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) or Rock School UK examinations. Both examinations are hosted at the school.
