Summer School 2019


General information – Embassy Summer School

The project-based approach allows us to introduce new skills, develop existing ones and inspire each child’s imagination and creativity to the best of their abilities. It also gives us the opportunity to work within all of the key areas of learning and development, and to carefully tailor activities to the needs, abilities and age of each individual child.


The idea is to immerse your children in the English language while exploring a range of topics from local history to environmental issues to inspire their imagination, creative thinking, expand their awareness about the world around them and help them express their thoughts, feelings and ideas through a range of media.


Please note that participation in trips for the very youngest children may be subject to approval and additional conditions. Again, there will be a wide variety of exciting and creative activities, including local attractions and making gluey, gooey, sticky and messy things.


Please note that all of our Summer School activities will be conducted entirely in English and so your child should be reasonably communicative in the language.


Summer school cost:

  1. 1000 PLN per week for all children aged 7 – 12
  2. 700 PLN per week for children aged 3 to 7


If your child would like to join us for one of the weeks listed below, please contact the school office and label your email “Summer School”
