A green and optimistic future … at Bangkok Prep

Dear Parents and Students 

As you know, Bangkok Prep is the second school in the world to be accredited with the highest Eco Schools Award – the Green Flag!

We are very proud of this achievement but we are realistic in the challenge ahead. In March 2019 our school hosted the first FOBISIA Environmental Conference in Thailand. This conference focused on reconnecting with nature in our cities. Children explored ways in which we can live more sustainably. 

Bangkok Prep is also extremely proud to be a fully affiliated member of the WWF (World Wildlife Fund).

I hope that many of you have had a chance to hear Greta Thunberg’s passionate speech to the UN earlier this week:

She has been an inspiration to millions of people and she bravely reminded the politicians about the urgency that we should be addressing climate change and why we should be saving our planet. Also earlier this week, Sir David Attenborough shared this heartening video which implores people in power to make a change immediately. It is clear that this is an issue that world leaders need to solve as soon as possible. 

Please take some time to watch (or even share) these videos. 

Our school is also working very closely with the Foundation for Environmental Education to provide training, resources and information for schools, teachers, students and parents. This will help to improve community engagement and meet the shared goals of higher levels of Global Citizenship.

The school has also developed the Bangkok Prep Forest School initiative on the purpose built campus on the Green Lung. This enables students to have regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment with trees. We have the honour of hosting the first UK Forest School Training Level 3 in October 2019. This will enable our teachers to skillfully facilitate outdoor learning and embed it into our curriculum. There is no doubt that this style of learning has a deep and profound impact on our children’s well-being and their understanding of the environment.

The new facilities made available when our new Block D is completed in June, will be very impressive and will include another huge array of solar panels. These solar panels will add to the complement of panels that have been in use since August 2017. 

Clearly, Bangkok Prep is fully committed to environmental education and sustainability! We have fully and authentically embedded the UN Sustainable Development Goals into our curriculum which we use as ‘guiding lights’ to shine the path towards a sustainable future. 

The staff and students of Bangkok Prep fully recognise that to enable a ‘real impact’, we all have a collective responsibility to ensure we recycle and follow a more sustainable pathway. 


Yours sustainably

Early Years

At Bangkok Prep, the Early Years curriculum follows the Early Years Foundation Stage framework of England, emphasizing thematic topics and child-led learning for a stimulating and enjoyable school experience. It nurtures learning through play and focuses on developing concepts, skills, and positive attitudes across various areas including personal, social, emotional, communication, language, physical, literacy, mathematics, understanding of the world, and expressive arts and design. The curriculum prioritizes individualized learning, ensuring continuous progress while maintaining confidence and a can-do attitude. Specialist sessions in Thai language and culture, music, library, physical education, and swimming further enhance learning opportunities. Supervised by native English teachers and Thai-speaking teaching assistants, children immerse in language acquisition through the immersion method, preparing them for the international community. The Early Years program prioritizes outdoor learning environments, valuing them as essential for children’s wellbeing and development. It serves as ideal preparation for the transition into primary school and provides resources for parents on the Foundation Years website.

Secondary School

Bangkok Prep prides itself on being a distinct international secondary school in Bangkok, prioritizing student needs and providing a stimulating learning environment. Central to this is the pastoral system, where each student is assigned to a tutor group led by a Form Tutor, ensuring personalized care and support. The curriculum evolves to meet students’ changing needs, offering a core curriculum supplemented by option subjects as students mature. Key Stage 3 (Years 7-9) focuses on a broad curriculum adapted from the English National Curriculum, fostering personal growth. In Key Stage 4 (Years 10-11), students choose option subjects alongside a core curriculum, culminating in IGCSE examinations. Key Stage 5 (Years 12-13) sees students specialize in Advanced Level courses while also engaging in a core curriculum and receiving support for university applications.
