*All students registered under a Thai passport must study Thai.

You cannot study both:

  • ICT and Computer Science
  • Art and Photography
  • Business Studies and Economics

We strongly recommend that all students study:

  1. One humanities subject (Business Studies, Economics, Geography, History, Psychology)
  2. One creative arts subject (Art, Drama, DT, Music, Photography)
  3. One other subject.

Equally, we would not encourage students to pick three humanities subjects or three creative arts subjects. Students who do not elect to study a broad and balanced curriculum will undergo pastoral conversations to determine whether the curriculum they have opted for is sufficiently wide to allow for a range of opportunities at a later age.
