Curriculum for excellence

We follow the English National Curriculum and tailor it to the needs of our students and the environment that we live in. With an international cohort we continue to place literacy and language development at the centre of our curriculum in Key Stage 2, as this allows access to and success in every other subject.

More important than what is covered in the curriculum is how it is taught. Children need to be happy and enjoy their learning and to develop skills they need for the future. We teach through an enquiry approach as far as possible through which we encourage children to problem solve and ask and answer thought provoking open ended questions.

Developing lifelong learners

Everyone at King’s Bangkok is a learner. It’s perfectly fine to make mistakes as long as we are wise and learn from them. We encourage children to have a growth mindset with a curiosity and desire to learn. To do this, we encourage children to think for themselves, ask questions and try to find the answers to those questions with guidance from outstanding teachers. Learning must be fun, challenging and inspiring and our staff all have a passion for teaching and children’s learning.

Connected learning

In Key Stage 2, we want to continue to develop skills such as team building, problem solving, flexibility, creative thinking, perseverance that students will need for later in life.  These skills are learnt through play in Early Years and Key Stage 1. Play shouldn’t stop there and our connected learning helps develop these skills further as students are encouraged to come up with their own topic they would like to find out more about and work on their own or with others to learn. This is an enquiry or Key Stage 2 play based approach and we believe children take their learning further when they have ownership of it.

The King’s Bangkok Co-curricular Programme

To contribute to the students’ enjoyment of school and to develop all of their skills and abilities, we have a broad and varied co-curricular programme for them to be excited about each day. These activities may be optional lunchtime clubs and societies or after school activities where children can develop skills they already have or try something new (ECAs). We also believe that children should try a variety of different activities, some which they may never have considered before. These are compulsory and built into the school day. (CCAs) . In addition to the clubs and societies we offer, there is always something wonderful going on at King’s. It could be a pop up festival focussing on Kindness or the environment, a paper plane competition or an event organised by the student council and initiated by the children themselves.
