Bangkok Patana Welcomes New Head of School Chris Sammons

Bangkok Patana welcome Mr. Chris Sammons as their new Head of School, leading their teachers, students and staff through 2023/24 and beyond. Mr. Sammons maintains a particular interest in intercultural education, complemented by strong experience and academic qualifications.

Chris has a combined 28 years of service as an educator. Most recently he served as the Principal at West Island School, Hong Kong and has worked at St Katherine’s School in Bristol, as well as in Warwickshire and Oxford. His professional qualifications include an MA (Hons) in Neuroscience and Psychology of Mental Health from King’s College London, a Postgraduate Certificate in International Studies and a BA (Hons) in Economics and Politics.

Chris is joined in Bangkok with his wife, Julie. They have three children in their 20s who all reside in the UK. Julie is also an educator, with a career in specialist teaching for hearing-impaired children.

“I am looking forward to the opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of students, teachers and staff whilst adapting to the new environment and culture,” said Chris. “Diversity is a rich resource to learn with and from – for all of us. Attending to cultural differences, perspective taking and collaboration are important skills for the workplace and life. The unique experiences of Bangkok Patana creates capable learners who can meet the challenges of a global workplace. In fact, it is the diversity and opportunity of schools such as Bangkok Patana which creates our best future leaders.”

Mr Sammons believes that school life is an extension of his family values, including kindness to self and others, appreciating each other’s strengths, facing challenges together and having fun. As we embark on a new journey of leadership, together we are determined to ensure all students at Bangkok Patana School are challenged with rigorous learning, engaged in well-being and are committed to becoming active global citizens.

A big welcome from our community to Chris and Julie!
