On September 14th we celebrated International Dot Day. On this day we could see students dressed in outfits full of dots. The teachers also took part in the events taking pictures of themselves within a dotted picture frame.  The lessons had special activities such as: painting dots on a large sheet of paper as demonstrated by the youngest group,  creating coloured images from one dot in class 2A by launching an application on the mobile phones in class 10. Class 5 on the other hand, celebrated Dot Day by recording an interesting video that you can watch in our story.  The culmination of the day was funny photographs taken with the dotted picture frame using various props.

We invite you to take a look through our gallery and we would also like to thank everyone who took part in the International Dot Day.

International Dot Day

New School Year 2019/2020

On the 7th September, 2019 we met again at the Polish School to start the new school year.

The school Director, Mrs. Katarzyna Satława-Rusin started the proceedings by leading everyone into singing the Polish National Anthem. She then provided the introductory speech and welcomed parents and students gathered in the main hall.  We welcomed last years GCSE and A Level students and congratulated them on their great exam results. The students received Diplomas and small gifts. The teachers received flowers as a thank you for preparing the students for their exams. Following a short reminder regarding the school regulations, the teachers led this years students to their classes.

We invite you to view the photographs below taken at the event and we wish all our students good results and fruitful learning in the new school year, 2019/2020.

" When you grow up, you discover you have two hands, one to help yourself and the other to help others.."

We started this morning on an exceptionally sweet note!

Cakes, cookies, cupcakes and coffee. 🍩🍮🎂🍰🍪☕

For the first time, our school joined the Macmillan Coffee Morning campaign to support people affected by cancer. But we already know that this is not the last time!

We thank our teachers for preparing delicious cakes, classes A1 and GCSE led by Mrs. Joanna Sikorski Adamowicz  for help in selling the cakes and to our dear parents for being actively involved in the campaign!

The total raised was £234.07 !! We believe that next year we will break this record, because if not us, who will?! Together we can do more!

On December 14th, the “Christmas Play” took place at the Polish School. It was produced by the theatre club. Class 10 students were helping during the performance but the carols were sung by everyone under the baton of the music club students.  We all had the opportunity to feel the magic of Christmas approaching.

Why is homework only for students?

On the 29th February, the second Mother Language Day was

held in our school, the first being held last year. Going along with many other schools in the world, we took on the task of showing the students the richness of the mother language, which is not only grammar and spelling, but the history of Poland and Poles hidden in the words. The main theme that students discussed with teachers was based on the sentence: Changing the world for the better. The work of Stefan Żeromski was read, social problems were compared to those of several decades ago to those of the present time, but also playing with words,  descriptions, dialect and metaphors new language terms were learned. Selected students from classes 6 - A1 also participated in a writing competition in which they could show their imagination, lightness of the pen and also empathy because the topics were on bringing help. Winners will be selected and prizes awarded soon!


Students from the art club will learn new types of art  in each class. This time we present to you Agamographs - day and night in one drawing 🌞🌛 🥰😊 is it possible? Check it out! 😊
