The Basic School
About our school
Our school is one of the thirteen public Primary school in Kladno, which is a town with seventy thousand inhabitants, located 25 km north-westwards our capital city Prague in Central Bohemia in the Czech Republic.
Our school was founded in 1912 and its name is Základní škola a Mateřská škola Kladno, Zd. Petříka 1756. However, it is known as „ Old Amálka “. The school campus consists of two parts, historical buildings, located close to each other. The school is in the centre of Kladno. It has two divisions: Lower ( grades 1 – 5 ) and Upper ( Grades 6-9 ). The average number of pupils in a class is 28.
With our great leadership we have started to change the profile of our school to one of the best public school in Kladno.
We have extended our teaching programme above the common frame by addition of more Information Technology and English Language Teaching in the new Language Laboratory established in 2012. We have available a range of equipment such as two renewed gymnasiums, IT lecture room with 31 well-equipped PCs, projectors and overheadprojectors, interactive white boards, English and German Language Classrooms, special classrooms for Science, Arts and Music and even a Kitchen Classroom.
Our school also started to offer school snacks additionally to hot lunches in its school canteen. We also participate in „Milk and Fruit to Schools„ EU and state programmes.
Besides, we organize a swimming training, ski course, short trips ( e.g. London, Paris, Berlin, Dresden, Wienna )and special English course. The range of free time activities increases every year. Not only, our afternoon Daycare School ( for younger pupils ) works well but also our clubs of Drama, Pottery, Dodgeball, Physics, School Magazine, Spanish, English and German.
As the finantial support of the state has become weaker we manage to obtain additional financial source via international projects and projects supported by Ministry of Education. We are the first school in the Czech Republic that obtained a subventian from the "EU Money to School" European project.
