The King’s Bangkok Academic Excellence
We know how important it is in the Senior school to continue establishing a love of learning, good habits of concentration, understanding, imaginative flexibility and discipline. Lessons are fun, exhilarating and purposeful, creating the best possible foundation for a lifetime of open-mindedness, learning and creativity.
Students are taught by specialist teachers in English, Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Geography, History, Art, Design & Technology, Drama, Music, Computing, PSHE, Swimming, and PE. All students will study two languages as well as English. Thai students will study Thai GCSE (also an option for non-Thai students if they choose).
Sixth form students study A levels, an internationally recognised qualification which prepares them for any university around the world. For A levels, students pursue three or four courses in the lower sixth and sit A level exams in three or four subjects at the end of the upper sixth.
The King’s Bangkok Pastoral Care
Our pastoral support allows students to build long-lasting friendships with each other. They meet with their form tutors every day; the form tutor ensures that students are looked after and encouraged to make the best of the numerous opportunities on offer. Twice a week, the students will also make friends across year groups and experience peer mentoring where the older students can take on leadership and share their knowledge to their younger peers through the format of ‘tutor groups’. In addition, the house tutor is on hand to provide parents with guidance on all aspects of school life. The house tutor will be the first person to invite parents in to discuss the best way forward.
House events, games, the arts, clubs and visits all combine to form an exciting experience and help students quickly get to know each other and care about each other’s well being as well as fulfill their academic potentials and develop in many other ways too.
The King’s Bangkok Co-curricular Programme
Our co-curricular provision continues in the Senior School. We run a large number of lunchtime clubs and societies, CCAs and optional activities for after school ECAs.
Careers and Universities
Careers guidance begins in Year 9 and we work closely with King’s Wimbledon to ensure we provide our students with the best possible help and support. We ensure that parents and students are given a broad range of information so that they can make the best choices moving forward. Part of this is advising students on IGCSE and A level choices as well as helping prepare university applications. We focus on helping students find a course and university that they will enjoy and succeed in rather than forcing them to apply to set universities or to specific courses.
Our senior school will begin accepting students in September 2021 and it will place great emphasis on a world-class academic education.
