Secondary Sports Update – 21st October 2022

Dear Parents and Students,

 Wow! What a fantastic Half Term we have had. It is amazing to have    Teaching and Learning back, face to face. The Physical Education and  Sport Department has thoroughly enjoyed working with every single  one of you and look forward to working with you again after a  well-earned break.

This term we have been working on ‘Outwitting Opponents’ through a variety of sports including Touch Rugby, Football and Basketball as some examples. All this hard work and learning has accumulated in a House Skills Competition and also House matches in Basketball for Key Stage 3 and 4 for the prize of House Champions and lots of House Points on offer. In Key stage 5, we enjoyed a similar Theme, but the House Tournaments were in Volleyball. The results for all of these competitions and matches are still coming in, but good luck to all the players and the Houses – we will update you all soon.

We have enjoyed being back in the pool and using our world class facilities to demonstrate our excellent swimmers in Key Stage 3. We have developed our strokes and the students have made exceptional progress. On the 11th of November we will be holding various galas for Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9. This event is for participation as well as performance. Signup sheets are out with the House Leaders and it is nice to see them filling up nicely, ready for House Year Group Galas.

Our Leadership Programme has started and the Year 10 students and teachers have done an outstanding job. Our students are our strongest asset and we are training them to lead and work as part of a team to deliver high quality sessions to their peers. We have lots of activities coming up, including working with our Primary students and colleagues on their Sports Day and other key dates and activities that are on the School Calendar.  

Next term we see our programme develop further with land based activities, as well as water based activities. This will include Invasion Games and Personal Survival / Life Saving.

Our Academic Curriculum has grown tremendously and we are incredibly proud of the outstanding work that the students are doing. All of our academic groups have grown considerably this year and this has allowed us to offer a world class curriculum in iGCSE PE, A Level, BTEC Level 2 and 3 courses. We are in the process of arranging some work based learning for our vocational courses and more information will follow after Half Term.

Thank you so much for your support this term. As I have said earlier the students are our strongest asset and we look forward to developing and growing even further after Half Term. As always, if you have any questions or would like any further details please do not hesitate to contact one of the PE Team or myself.

Yours in PE,

Kyle Fiddler

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.
