25 – 26 April 2020
Online Recruitment Weekend – Years 10 & 12

Online recruitment weekend (25 – 26 April 2020)

The April recruitment weekend will be conducted online due to the coronavirus threat. Candidates will receive e-mails with guidance on the 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 online recruitment weekend in April, 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 the 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

Take part in the online recruitment weekend.
The recruitment process lasts for two days and is conducted 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.

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.
