Polish Saturday School

in Plymouth

Polish Saturday School in Plymouth founded in November 2007, as one of over 120 Supplementary Polish Schools in the UK, under the patronage of Polish Education Society in London. 

Main aims of the school are to teach our pupils Polish language, history, geography, religion, tradition, culture and heritage.

Polish Saturday School is open on Saturdays from 9.30 am till 2.00 pm during school terms.

We educate children from the age of 4 to 16. There are over 240 pupils enrolled for the academic year 2019/2020.

We work closely with Polish parents by providing information about English education system, exams, advising how to support their children and what to do if they have any problems or queries. On the other side we can provide background information about Polish community, economic migration its problems and issues.

From February 2017 we are under honorary patronage of Pedagogical University of Cracow, Poland, and we receive the support and training to develop bilingualism in our children, by introduction of the new method of reading (The Cracow Method) we became their research centre in the UK.

The first significant relationship of Poles with Plymouth took place during World War II, when the aftermath of the September Campaign in 1939 and the evacuation of Polish Navy, provisional base was established her; later the Southern Command of the Polish Navy. The building on Albert Road became the Polish Navy Cadet School.

Another chapter in the history of the city, where the Polish community has left, and leaves its imprint is the period of Polish accession to the European Union in April 2004. Great Britain opened its borders and a huge wave of Polish immigrants poured across the island, reaching the farthest corners

It is difficult to estimate how many Poles came to Plymouth, different sources give various data. It appears that the peak period of the wave of emigration was in 2006 when the Polish community could reach 20.000 people. In later years this percentage has been steadily declining, and indeed the national census, which will take place in 2011 precisely determine this number.
