Message from the Head of School

Wednesday 30th June

Dear Parents and Students

As we complete the last few minutes of this academic year, I remain extremely proud of all that has been achieved during 2020–2021. This year has been another year of difficult challenges for all of the members of our outstanding learning community. I have been very impressed by the extraordinary resilience that has been demonstrated by the children of Bangkok Prep and despite the pandemic they have managed to make impressive progress as you can see from their end of year reports.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all parents for your unwavering support for your children’s education. As a parent of three children, I fully recognise that the moments when your children are learning at home, can be very challenging. The regular feedback that you have provided, throughout this year, has enabled the teachers to gain a meaningful perspective on your thoughts and ideas. This feedback has also been essential for the refining of our learning systems and further enhancing the online learning sessions.

Learning at home, by its very nature, must be quite different to the learning that occurs when the children are in school. However, we must comply with the government directives and mandates. Without doubt, the teachers would much rather have children in school learning in the classroom but we have had to ensure that safety is always a priority.

Please be reassured that the staff at Bangkok Prep will continue to work tirelessly at preparing both campuses to fully open in August 2021.  I remain very confident that the COVID -19 situation in Bangkok will improve in the coming months and the new normal will become apparent. You will, no doubt, be pleased to hear that we have invested significantly in the pastoral care and wellbeing of the children in our school.

I am delighted to inform you that, by the end of July, all Bangkok Prep staff including teachers will be fully vaccinated and therefore safe to be with your children, in school, for the next academic year. We believe that the full vaccination of educational staff is essential and well worth the substantial investment.

I hope that your children will enjoy taking part in the comprehensive supplementary sessions which will begin on Monday 9th August 2021. These sessions are exclusively available for children registered at Bangkok Prep and will be free of charge. Further details of the activities and registration will be shared with you in due course.

Our reputation, as a great school, continues to grow and many of our year groups are full for next year. I believe this is a clear indication of the confidence that parents have in our school.  Bangkok Prep will be back, stronger and better than ever, for the next academic year.

It is really important that children have a recreational break after the recent period of emergency closure and lockdown.  I hope you and your family are able to find some opportunities, during the next few months, to spend some high quality time together.

Have a wonderful summer break and I look forward to seeing you all safe and sound on Thursday 19th August 2021 for the first day of the next academic year 2021 – 2022.

Please stay safe and healthy!


Warmest regards

With a dedicated team of educators, Bangkok Prep sets high standards, encouraging students to dream big and work hard towards their goals.

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.
