In 1945 the Follow-up Coal Industry Professional School was created. In 1949 the school was moved to a sanitary barrack. It was used as a school building until the beginning of March 1953. Then the current building, at that time under the name of Basic Mining School, was transferred and put into use. For many years the school taught electricians and mechanics for the “REMAG” Repair Works. In the 1950s students and teachers had opportunities to go to Polish health resorts within the framework of worker vacations. In January 1986, on the 40th anniversary of the school, it was given the name of “Tomasz Klenczar” as a patron. Since 1st of September 2016 the school has the name of Tomasz Klenczar Technical School No 15.

The school equipment and technology are on a high level, we have many specialized workshops and laboratories to get the best results.
We run regionalism classes too. For this reason we created the Silesian workshop in our school. The school has many years of experience of cooperation with local educational and cultural institutions. Students of our School have had a lot of success. They are winner of the project for the civic budget in Katowice. We are open to young people from outside European countries in areas at risk of war.
