  • The new Primary Campus will be located next to the school’s already well-established Secondary Campus.
  • Designed for the future; state of the art clean air systems, solar panels, low energy appliances, and a campus situated in a green, low rise environment amidst Bangkok’s premier eco-living community.
  • With this new purpose built addition of the Primary School at Sukhumvit 77, Bangkok Prep will be the largest international school campus in the Sukhumvit CBD area.

Bangkok (November 19th 2021) – Plans are well underway for the development of the new Primary buildings, which are adjacent to the  existing Secondary School. The marking of the main construction pile of  ‘Block E’ and ‘Block F,’  commenced on November 11th 2021 and the campus is expected to be  completed by the first quarter of 2023.

Highlighting the school’s expertise in primary education for over 18 years, there will be 13,500 m2 of 21st century concept learning space –  purposely designed for children aged between 3-11 years old. The Primary School will contain a 25 metre swimming pool, a state of the art sports complex, a music recital hall, a modern 370 m2 library, contemporary and flexible learning spaces and a “co-working space concept” for every Year Group.  There is also a purposely designed 1,300 mEarly Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) indoor learning space with its own paddling pool, a large outdoor playground and a sports field. The building’s focus is on sustainability and will include a ‘FreshAir System’ which provides clean air and ventilation throughout as a  preventative measure to alleviate both PM2.5 and Covid-19 issues.

Construction of the project is currently underway and more details will follow shortly.
