Welcome from the Head of School

A very warm welcome to the Bangkok International Preparatory & Secondary School website

Whether you are a prospective parent considering Bangkok Prep for the education of your child or whether you are a current parent of the school who is browsing for more information, I hope that the following pages on our website will give you a sense of the full and happy school life our students enjoy. I am proud to say that our school offers a high standard of education. We are committed to achievement – in all its forms and in all areas of the curriculum. To that end, Bangkok Prep provides a caring and supportive atmosphere which allows our students to thrive academically, socially and emotionally. Our students are encouraged to be enquiring, creative, reflective and motivated learners and their individual talents are nourished and celebrated within our inclusive environment. I’m often asked what makes us different to other international schools. We are of course proud of our achievements, but there are other important aspects of Bangkok Prep that we think are important when choosing a school.

Our students are at the heart of everything we do

Our teaching is tailored as much as possible to accommodate individual learning styles and needs and encourages our students to flourish, grow in self-confidence and, above all, fulfil their potential. Bangkok Prep employs high quality teachers who are well-qualified and experienced in the delivery of the English National Curriculum, I/GCSE and A Level. All our staff members are dedicated to the promotion of high quality learning. Our favourable teacher : student ratio and excellent resources help ensure our students’ success, whatever their age or ability.

School life at Bangkok Prep is a busy but happy one

Recognising the benefits that strong parental and community involvement can bring to students, we actively encourage an open partnership between home and school. Parents are welcome to participate in many areas of school life, reinforcing the importance of operating as a team to make the most of living within the large international community here in Bangkok.

The school campuses are in great locations

Situated in the heart of Bangkok, our campuses are within easy reach to the Sky Train (BTS) which minimises the journey time from home to school. This gives students and their families less traveling time in the car and more opportunities to take part in our school and community events. Whether you are a student, teacher or parent, whether you are planning to be in Bangkok for two years or twenty, you will be an integral and important part of the Bangkok Prep community and I guarantee that your family will enjoy the experience. I warmly invite you to visit Bangkok Prep to see our students at work and play on a typical school day so you can experience at first-hand what the school offers. Best regards,

Duncan Stonehouse Head of School

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.
