Further Information

Thames British School is a new and expanding school. Our preschool campus opened its doors in September 2018 and we opened a second campus outside Warsaw accommodating children from Nursery to Year 6 in September 2019. From September 2020, this campus will extend to cater for students up to Year 9. We will also be operating from two new campuses in the centre of Warsaw, and we will be accommodating students from Year 2 to Year 13 within these sites.

The school’s mission is to encourage our children to go further than they thought possible by nurturing resilience, cooperation and enthusiasm in a safe environment. Our approach to the National Curriculum for England provides broad and balanced educational experiences through encouraging children to take ownership of their learning.

It is an exciting time for our school as we are in the process of applying for accreditation from Cambridge. This will further extend opportunities for our teachers to develop within our school and the wider community of Cambridge schools.
