21 – 22 November 2020
Online Recruitment Weekend – Years 10 & 12

Recruitment Weekend (21st-22nd November)

The recruitment weekend scheduled for 21st-22nd November will be conducted online. Candidates registered for this weekend will receive e-mails with guidance on the online recruitment process.

The recruitment process is treated primarily as an opportunity for us to learn as much as possible about candidates for our school.

In accordance with the innovative design we have created for our school, we have also created a unique recruiting process unlike any other in Poland. During the upcoming recruitment weekend in November, students can apply to:

  • Year 10 – for the Four-Year Programme, comprising two years of iGCSE taught alongside our own assessed courses, followed by the Two-Year A Level programme, as in the United Kingdom (Years 10 – 13).
  • Year 12 – for Two-Year Programme, involving only A Levels (Years 12 – 13).

The stages of recruitment

During the various stages of recruitment, we aim to learn as much as possible about the skills and aptitudes of the student.

Parents can contact our Admissions officers by e-mail or by phone to learn more about how the school functions, the requirements of the academic programme, the school’s teaching philosophy and the later stages of the recruiting process.


Stage 1

The recruitment process lasts for two days and is conducted online over the course of a single weekend. Our recruitment (assessment) weekend include:

  1. University lectures in English supplemented with tests to check the students’ abilities to learn and understand new content, analytical thinking, ability to draw conclusions, and the ability to compare data.
  2. English Language competence testing. 
  3. Individual meetings with subject teachers: we check not only a student’s knowledge but also, more importantly, their predisposition.
  4. Mathematics test.


This assessment process was created with the aim of uncovering the academic knowledge and talents held by each individual student. In doing so, we can better understand how these may be enriched, developed, and employed in propelling students along the educational pathway to which they are most suited. All meetings are conducted exclusively by our own teachers.

This detailed, analytical entrance process was designed by us, based on our personal knowledge of and experience within the Oxbridge interview system, as well as A Level requirements and other assessment methods.

The cost of participation in the recruitment weekend is 2 000 PLN.


Stage 2

At the end of the process, the parents and the student receive a tailored report to be discussed at an individual meeting. The report outlines recommendations for the student’s educational path, based upon the student’s optimal learning style, needs and predispositions, as well as guidance for further development.


Stage 3

Decisions regarding admissions are based on the final report.
