Bangkok Prep Community – UPDATE

To be an outstanding learning community that is internationally-minded, inspiring all members to achieve their potential.

Bangkok Prep Community – UPDATE – Friday 15th January 2021

Dear Bangkok Prep Community,

We are delighted with the way the students of Bangkok Prep have engaged with online learning. Yet again, they have demonstrated resilience and maturity. We all hope to have permission to open the school to students again in the very near future.

School Closure – update

The orders under the current Emergency Decree will see the school remain closed until at least Monday 1st February 2021. The ability of schools to reopen thereafter will depend on the control of the spread of the virus in Thailand. We will update the Bangkok Prep community accordingly.

As you are aware, our school is compelled to follow the directives from the CCSA, BMA, Ministry of Education and OPEC. We will continue to remain optimistic and hope that we will be able to reopen the school as soon we have approval and in the meantime we will continue to provide enhanced online learning.

Bangkok Prep Panda – making resources available for enhanced online learning

This week we have made resources available for our students to use at home. Our pick up and delivery service ensures that your child has all of the learning resources they require to continue high quality learning at home. It is a quick and safe service that is just another way we are adapting to help and support our students.

Students are doing very well with our Enhanced Online Learning

In Primary, we have been very excited to read and hear all the positive feedback from our parents on both our feedback form and in our Class Parent Representative Forums with Year Leaders about our Online Learning. We are so pleased to hear that parents feel the transition has been smoother, and that such a high percentage rate our Online Learning across the Primary school as “Excellent.” The work children have been producing is of an exceptional standard, and it’s heartwarming to see and hear the videos children have produced. You can see some of the inspiring examples on our Weekly Blogs this week. The participation in Zoom sessions across all subjects has been extremely high, and we are so proud of our Primary Children.

In Secondary, engagement in online learning has been extremely impressive. With an average daily attendance of 97.8%, we continue to be immensely proud of students’ dedication and hard work. We can all learn a lot from students’ resilience throughout this period. While life around the world may be far from normal at the moment, students at Bangkok Prep have continued to uphold the same standards that they always have. Particular mention must go to Year 11-13 students who have had examinations during this period: Year 11 have transitioned seamlessly to online mock examinations and have worked with us to ensure these help their progress for the examinations in May and June. Watch out for Shout Outs which will be released later today to celebrate some of the great work students have been doing!

Admissions Procedure

When choosing Bangkok Prep for your child, you’re welcomed into the school family, ensuring a warm and supportive environment. The admissions process begins with completing a brief enquiry form, followed by an invitation for an introductory visit and tour. Conveniently located on Sukhumvit 77, Bangkok Prep offers both Primary and Secondary campuses. Upon deciding on Bangkok Prep, applicants submit their application form and required documents. Assessment sessions are then scheduled based on the applicant’s year level, ranging from 30 minutes to 3 hours. The assessment includes various activities and tests tailored to different age groups. After assessment, the admissions team evaluates the application and notifies the family of the decision within 1-2 weeks. Successful applicants receive a formal offer letter and an invoice for initial fees, including placement, security, and registration fees, which must be paid within the specified timeframe to secure the child’s place.

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. Bangkok Prep fosters a warm, inclusive community and actively participates in regional competitions and events. The school encourages student involvement and leadership, ensuring a thriving learning environment. Contact information is provided for further inquiries.
