What Students & Parents Say

“Hi! My name is Mariana and I am currently enrolled at the Third Faculty of Medicine, Charles University in Prague, studying General Medicine. I made the decision to undertake the IB Diploma Programme at Park Lane in Autumn 2018 and let me tell you why this was the best decision I’ve ever made. The biggest thank you that I owe to Park Lane is for teaching me to be confident in myself and my own beliefs. Theory of Knowledge, Global Politics and English classes taught me how to develop and express relevant arguments. Our IB Maths teacher, apart from making me work hard on my (dreaded) maths homework, taught me not to apologize for asking questions, however dumb they may sound. Mr. Čihák, our IB coordinator showed me that problems are not to be swept under the rug but rather solved immediately. All of these are soft skills that I value deeply and will always be grateful to Park Lane for showing me their importance. Not only did my school prepare me well academically for the difficult medicine entrance exams, but most importantly supported my classmates and I in becoming respectful individuals and members of society❤.”

“My student life at Park Lane began when I was only 7 years old, so one could say that by the time I graduated, I had become one of the ‘elders’ amongst the school community. Starting my journey in Year 2, I was the only student in the class. Yet,…

Jan Čihák

After completing my MA in Czech and French philology at the Charles University in Prague I taught shortly in a private Czech secondary school before I started teaching Czech and French at the English College in Prague in 2003. Over the years there I took various positions such as Senior Tutor or Head of Czech department. Over the past few years I was responsible for all matters related to the Czech educational legal background working as Director of Czech educational matters. I have been involved with the International Baccalaureate Organisation since 2011 by leading and facilitating face to face and online IB workshops (also abroad), and I am an examiner of IB Czech A course. I cooperate closely with CERMAT on the concept of the state leaving examination, so called maturita and I also worked for a few semesters at the Charles University leading seminar on how to teach Czech efficiently - this was also the time when I finished my Ph.D. in sociolinguistics there. Most of all, in school I have a passion for teaching and discovering new methods of efficient learning. Students´ progress and enjoyment of their own learning is the most important imperative for me and I can not imagine this happening without humour in class. In my private life I enjoy cycling, reading and making music - I am an enthusiastic guitar and bass player, but I also try new instruments such as accordion. I have a little daughter and spending my spare time with her is my biggest pleasure.

I am originally from Lincolnshire in the UK. I studied mathematics at City University in London and at first embarked on a career as a computer programmer. After a number of years in the industry I decided to change my career and pursue mathematics teaching. The start of my teaching…
