The 1st and 2nd year of study

The diagnostics process continues throughout the entire first and second year of study.

Our mentors, all experienced teachers and educators, carefully observe the progress of their pupils, identify potential problems and suggest optimal solutions and paths to development.

Under the watchful eye of their mentor, each student follows a specific program and gradually prepares to start making decisions related to the choice of their educational path.

The 1st and 2nd year of study – program

The first two school years focus on the GCSE program.

The first two years of school equips students with essential knowledge and gives them the necessary skills (English proficiency, study habits and the ability to think critically) that will allow them to successfully pursue their main areas of study in subsequent years.


The 1st and 2nd year – CORE curriculum:

  • Mathematics – available at four different levels (Express / Advanced / Standard / Studies);
  • English –  English Language and Literature or English as a Second Langauge (ESL);
  • Polish Culture – lessons are conducted within the framework of our uniquely-designed curriculum in blocks pertaining to themes around Polish cultural heritage, and are supplemented by activities in the field of visual arts;
  • Global Studies
  • Critical Thinking – exercises the mind to become more critical, creative and analytical;
  • Visual and Music Culture – on making connections between art, music, literature, world history, history of art and religion;

The 1st year – foundation

Foundation subjects obligatory for all students:

  • History
  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Physics

The 2nd year – main academic focus

Each student chooses from one of these profiles:

  1. Natural Sciences (Physics, Chemistry, Biology)
  2. Social Studies (Economics, History, Politics, Human Science – sociology and anthropology)
  3. Humanities (English and World literature, History, Religious Studies, History of Art)

 

The 3rd and 4th year of study

Students select three or four A Level subjects out of a larger group of approximately twenty.

They are still free to choose at this point and are not obligated by, for example, their core concentration studies from the first year.

From the diagnostics process, students will already have knowledge of their strengths, weaknesses and predispositions. This should allow them to make informed choices regarding their educational paths in accordance with their potential.
