British Schools in Bangkok

British schools in Bangkok

A British education is based on the English or British National Curriculum. In Britain, it is compulsory for children between the ages of 5 and 16, with clear provision made for students, based on their ages, in specific developmental Key Stages. A defined curriculum accompanies each Key Stage, with clear assessments and examinations to monitor and track each child’s progress. Each Key Stage encompasses core subjects, including English, mathematics, science and information technology, as well as foundation subjects in the humanities, creative and performing arts, modern languages and physical education.

Students study the International version of the General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) over the two years of Key Stage 4, from the age of 14 to 16. This includes core and elective subjects. Upon completion of Key Stage 4, students sit for the IGCSE examinations, a formal assessment of the child’s attainment of his or her compulsory education. Students planning to attend university continue onto Key Stage 5 to complete two years of advanced courses, comprised of A Level courses and/or the IB in Years 12 and 13.

Established over 50 years ago, the A Level programme has been the primary qualification for further education in the United Kingdom, a tried and tested model, often referred to as the “Gold Standard” by global universities. An A Level programme offers depth and breadth through a challenging and academic learning path. Typically, students choose three or four subjects in their first year of study [Y12 in the UK curriculum] before narrowing to three in the second year [Y13]. Students focus on subjects where individual abilities, passions and strengths lie.

Here in Bangkok we are fortunate enough to have many exceptional British Schools and the following schools are listed only in alphabetical order not in order of ranking.
