Preparing for the Future

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.

We aim not only to provide an outstanding teaching and learning environment, but also to support and guide students to make informed decisions about their future. Our careers programme, embedded across the curriculum, includes a wide range of events and opportunities to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to develop their career path and inspire them to achieve their full potential.

The careers programme is primarily based on career guidance offered in the new PSHE programme, as well as through access to two comprehensive career portals with personalised profiles:

University Guidance

Whilst traditionally the majority of our IB graduates have applied to UK Russell Group universities, we are aware that the higher education landscape is both vast and dynamic and that there are plenty of competitive alternatives available. We aim to provide a high standard of global university guidance, via formal presentation and information events for entire year groups and bespoke one-to-one meetings with individual students. 

Mr Clark (University Guidance) and Miss Szyperska (Careers and Work Experience) take the lead on advising students across the key stages, but there is strong input from Form Tutors, Heads of Year and academic subject specialists. 

Students are encouraged to be proactive and independent in their research, but also to make appointments with tutors and guidance counsellors to discuss options and to seek help with the nitty gritty of completing application forms.

The Resource Room, adjacent to the IB College Learning Centre, is stocked with university prospectuses and various guides on, for example, additional testing for university applicants such as IELTS and SATs. This room also provides a useful space for quiet research and small group discussions with advisers.
