This nation-wide competition started at this school. This is the 17th year, under the patronage of the Ambassador of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to the Czech Republic, Her Excellency, Ms Jan Thompson, under the auspices of the Ministry of Education and Youth of the Czech Republic, and under support of the Mayor of the Prague 13 City District.

In this article you can read about the history of our school, its educational curriculum, the extended language programme and many tradiditional and occasional activities of our school community.

This school started its new history as a school with classes with Extended Language Programme at the beginning of the 90ties of the 20th century after the Velvet Revolution. There were two classes with the ELP opened in the 1990/1991 school year. In one of the classes, English was the first foreign language, while in the other, German was taught. During the time the number of these classes has risen and in the higher classes, the second foreign language has been added. In the years of 2007 and 2008, when all basic schools in the Czech Republic were creating their new curriculum, the pedagogical staff of this school created the curriculum called Co se v Mládí naučíš – What you learn in the youth (first half of the saying: What you learn in the youth, you will find useful in the old). This new curriculum is based on the former official curriculum for basic schools with extended language programme. English is still the first foreign language taught in our school, but we start to teach English earlier, in the first classes.
