Long story short I am fluent in both English and Polish and have lived here since the age of 4, should I include this into my personal statement and ,if so, any advice as to how? I am applying for maths and computer science, thank you.

It's not particularly relevant to the course you want to study so doesn't need to be included, but you can if you want to. The personal statement should be personal so it's entirely up to you what you choose to include. It doesn't matter to universities whether or not you are an immigrant, if you have any extenuating circumstances relating to that then it is best included in your reference. If you feel that being fluent in another language is beneficial you could mention it briefly in your personal statement if you wanted.
