    Head of Music Department, Teacher of Music & Year 7 Tutor

    Jaime Gibson

    studied my Bachelor of Music in Sydney focusing on performance on the Saxophone and Clarinet and Music Technology. I became passionate about Wind Orchestra and studied conducting with Symphony Australia and under many American professors through the Australian Band and Orchestra Directors Association which led me to studying in Los Angeles and New York.

    I love to perform and when I moved to London to teach I also joined the BBC Elstree Wind Orchestra on Clarinet and performed in a range of Blues and Pop bands. I became a Teacher Ambassador for the Royal College of Music while working in London which was a great honour. I really appreciate the musical history of Europe and decided to base myself in Warsaw to be closer to the birthplace of so many of the great composers such as Frédéric Chopin. The relationship with Juilliard was a big factor in choosing to work at BSW and I’m excited about the upcoming projects.

    Art Teacher & Year 7 Tutor

    Martyna Kaldonek

    Art has always been a part of my life,. Whether creating, admiring or sharing it. I set out to keep it that way in my professional life too. I studied Fine Arts in the picturesque town of Falmouth in Cornwall, surrounded by likeminded artists each following their own particular area of interest. It was an inspiring and enriching experience, and I produced many pieces myself that were later exhibited in London and Warsaw.

    In equal measure to creating art, I take great satisfaction in sharing my passion with others. I completed an IPGCE that opened the door to teaching in an international setting - an exciting environment that is very familiar to me since I experienced it first hand when I was at school. The British School Warsaw is just such a place with many driven pupils, so I relish the opportunity to bring out the best in them and hope to inspire those that may not yet have discovered their interest.

    I have been a teacher for five years, both internationally and in the UK. I am incredibly lucky to have chosen a career that I enjoy so much and that has enabled me to meet some incredible people from all across the world. Before starting at TBS Warsaw, I taught in China, in a city called Qingdao (it is not very well known, but has a population of 9 million people!). Previous to that, I taught in a high-achieving state school in London. These experiences were obviously completely different to one another, but the consitent theme was how much I enjoyed interacting with students and discussing literature with them.

    I took the decision to join TBS Warsaw due to the school's excellent reputation. I also can't deny that it will be great to be closer to home, and most importantly I won't have to wake up at three in the morning to watch Arsenal matches! Warsaw is a city that I am excited to explore in more depth. It is an exciting, vibrant and historically significant city that I would love to experience in more depth. As well as retaining its links to its history, the city has become a forward-thinking, modern, global city.

    Science Teacher & Year 7 Tutor

    Barbara Peplinska

    We arrived in Warsaw In March 1993, with our three small children. I had been very happy teaching Chemistry in a large Comprehensive school in central  London for 6 years, but had to give this up for our new adventure. My eldest daughter joined Reception in September, by which time, the school had already grown exponentially.  Finding it difficult to cope without the stimulation of a job, I managed to find work and it wasn’t till September 1996 that a part-time Science job became available for me at The British School. I have been teaching in the school ever since. I have been part of the school’s growth from Primary, to Secondary to IB. Virtually every year has seen a new challenge and it continues to grow and change.

    I have a Master’s Degree in European Integration from the University of Limerick and a Bachelors International in Public and Social Policy.
