Warsaw Poland
British Primary School of Wilanow

Welcome to BSW !

BSW offers an excellent international primary school education for families in Warsaw.  
Our school is known for its warm welcome, its family atmosphere, its small class sizes and individual attention. It also has a very strong reputation for academic rigour and excellence with a culture of respect, courtesy and good manners. Set on the edge of glorious countryside, yet still in the heart of fashionable Wilanow, the school campus is a modern one with ambitious plans and with the resources and space to grow and develop.

We want all students to become better people, in their learning, in their interaction with others and in their understanding of the world. Through this reflection we call on this community to act to make our school, our locality and the world a better place. Though the website is an excellent window into BSW, nothing can replace a personal visit and please contact us to arrange a tour.


We are a value-driven school offering a world-class education founded in the National Curriculum of England. For more information about our mission and values, please click here.
