Principal’s welcome

A very warm welcome to the Poznań British International School website, which I hope you find informative and helpful.

Our School is the only school in Poland accredited by the Council of British International Schools (COBIS) –

Founded in 2000, the Poznań British International School (PBIS) is experienced in combining a high quality, challenging British International education to pupils from 3-16 from a variety of cultural backgrounds. We aspire to create an environment where children feel happy and motivated. Our aim is for our pupils to become successful academically, personally and socially.

The PBIS welcomes families of all nationalities and offers a quality British education in a truly multicultural community. This international environment allows the PBIS pupils to develop as confident learners. We offer both nationally and internationally recognised educational opportunities from Nursery through to lower secondary school to children and young adults whose families are internationally mobile.

Our highly qualified British and international Staff are experienced, enthusiastic, caring and deeply committed to the promotion of quality learning, working together to help our pupils reach their own individual potential in the wonderful family atmosphere that is so special to our small School. We treat each of our pupils as individuals and work extremely hard to ensure that all pupils at the PBIS have the opportunity to excel and reach all set targets.

Small class sizes, the maintenance of rigorous academic standards in a caring, but disciplined setting, courtesy, team work and responsibility are some of the features of a PBIS education. We understand the needs of families looking to be grounded in the host country whilst keeping a global outlook.

Whether you are currently in Poznań, or considering moving to Poznań, the education of your child is one of the most important decisions you will need to make. If you are contemplating applying for a place for your child at our School, I encourage you to browse our website to see what the PBIS can offer.

However, there can be no substitute for a personal visit and you are warmly invited to come and see the School and our pupils at work and play – please telephone and make an appointment. You’ll be made to feel very welcome!
