The beginnings of the Grammar school on Pankúchova Street trace back to the 1990s when there was still an Elementary school operating here. Around 1990, the idea of establishing a Grammar school emerged. The first students started attending on September 1, 1992. It began with four-year and eight-year study programs, each with two classes of up to 34 students per class.

There was significant interest in the Grammar school, aided in no small part by the school’s focus areas. Initially, these were mathematics and physics, biology and chemistry, physical education and sports for a certain period, and later the school’s focus on ecology and foreign languages.

After Slovakia joined the EU, the school started bilingual studies. Initially, this was part of the 8-year Grammar school, later transitioning to a 5-year bilingual study program. This includes teaching some subjects, such as biology, chemistry, and geography in English, along with a continuing course in European Studies. This course was initially created as a collaborative project with schools in Vienna, the Czech Republic, and Budapest and later became an integral part of the curriculum.

On September 2, 2020, the Grammar school was officially closed to allow its successor organization, Spojená škola, Pankúchova 6, Bratislava, with two organizational units, an Elementary school and a Grammar school, to fulfill its vision starting September 3, 2020.

Vision and Goals

The school’s goal is to implement a comprehensive system of quality language education from the first grade of elementary school through to graduation. When Spojená škola, Pankúchova 6, became an IB school, it became one of only two schools in Slovakia offering a continuum of three international educational programs for children and youth aged 6 to 19 years.

The aim of all IB programs is the development of people with an international mindset. International-mindedness is a multifaceted and complex concept that captures a way of thinking, being, and acting characterized by openness to the world and recognition of our interconnectedness with others. Each of the IB programs reflects the central desire to provide education that transcends disciplinary, cultural, national, and geographical boundaries.

IB programs provide students with opportunities to explore many national and global issues and ideas. IB education promotes international-mindedness by helping students reflect on their own perspectives, culture, and identity. IB students gain understanding, think, and collaborate across cultures and disciplines, necessary to make progress towards a more peaceful and stable world.


Spojená škola on Pankúchova Street in Bratislava’s Petržalka district is proud of its students, who succeed in regional, national, and international rounds of various competitions, winning first places or ranking among the top positions.
