The School provides an extensive, balanced curriculum which broadly follows the National Curriculum of England, enhanced as appropriate to take account of this country's unique and rich cultural heritage through the robust curricular scope of Polish requirements. We cover a range of academic subjects, including Numeracy/Mathematics, Literacy/English, Science, History, Geography, Art, Design Technology, Drama, Music and Physical Education.
We run this curriculum with the intention that children who study at BSW will be able to transfer, should they need to do so, to any other British curriculum school, in the UK or abroad, in a straightforward way.
Pupils, up to the end of Year 4, who wish to receive a Polish diploma each year will be able to do so, since our curriculum has been designed to allow for fulfilment of the requirements of the Polish Ministry of Education. There is an extra load associated with the Polish curriculum, which includes Polish language and optional religious instruction, along, typically, with some aspects of Polish history and geography.
Pupils are formally assessed against detailed UK national standards at regular points in their school careers - at the end of Year 2, Year 6 and Year 9. BSW pupils will take two-year (I)GCSE courses in Years 10 and 11, which culminate in externally-assessed and internationally-recognised examinations, and it is intended that they will study for the IB Diploma in Years 12 and 13 (age 16-18), a qualification favoured by many top UK independent schools and most of the best international British schools and recognized by all universities around the world.
