Bangkok Prep Learning Hub: The beginning!!

Dear Parents,

Thank you to those of you who participated in our recent Community Language Survey. Your feedback has paved the way for exciting opportunities that we are thrilled to share with you.

Our Bangkok Prep Learning Hub will begin with offering a selection of exciting Thai activities after school beginning at 16:00 each day. These sessions will begin this term on Monday 13th May and run for approximately 4-5 weeks until Friday 14th June. The Thai department have volunteered to be the first and these activities are being run as a trial before we roll out further activities in Term 1 of next academic year. The cost is 800 Baht per session or take advantage of the discount on offer for a block booking! 

Potentially, expanding to weekends and holiday programmes, if you and/or your children are interested in exploring the rich culture and language of Thailand and or bring yourselves up to speed with Thai focusing on conversational activities as well as other opportunities, please consider the activities on offer on our Bangkok Prep Learning Hub page. Beginning next term. we’ll have our own Firefly page and have weekly entries and reminders in the Weekly Blogs.

I would like to dispel any concerns that could arise, as at Bangkok Prep, we take pride in the excellence of our Thai curriculum and programs, catering to students of all abilities. Our Thai departments continue to thrive, reflecting the high standards you would expect from Bangkok Prep and in no way will these optional activities conflict with the hard work we are already renowned for except to enhance and support or even to simply try something new! Such activities are extra for you!

Initially, the Thai activities on offer can be seen on our “Bangkok  Prep Learning Hub page. However, look out for summer activities that some of our staff will be offering for those who are not leaving for the summer and would like to keep learning! Such activities will include Thai, EAL, English, French, Physics, Maths, additional Football, Art, Forest school, etc. Please keep an eye on the Bangkok  Prep Learning Hub pages for updates, offers, discounts etc!

 

Our Bangkok Prep Learning Hub is at its early stages and your support is greatly appreciated as we look forward to its development and growth. How refreshing and exciting to have such endless possibilities.

Primary School

The Head of Primary at Bangkok Prep emphasizes the importance of primary education in shaping students’ lives academically and socially. The school aims to prepare global citizens capable of facing life’s challenges in an ever-changing world. With a dedicated team of educators, Bangkok Prep sets high standards, encouraging students to dream big and work hard towards their goals.

Aligned with the National Curriculum of England and Wales, the school’s curriculum is adapted to reflect Thai culture and society. Teaching follows an innovative thematic approach, integrating real-life contexts with academic rigor to develop well-rounded individuals. Learning is personalized to cater to diverse abilities and talents, fostering mutual respect, trust, and inclusivity.

Bangkok Prep’s primary curriculum extends beyond statutory requirements, focusing on engaging cross-curricular themes to facilitate high-quality learning. Emphasizing active and interactive learning experiences, the curriculum encourages exploration, questioning, and collaboration. The school aims to nurture students’ curiosity, helping them discover lifelong passions and talents while preparing them for a fulfilling future.

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.
