We want our students to be individuals with their own unique mix of talents and interests. Not only is this important for their general wellbeing, but this also allows them to access the world's best universities who now want much more than academic results. This is why we attach such importance to the students’ involvement in our co-curricular programme. We have a unique mix of clubs, societies, CCAs and ECAs which involve sports, academic and creative pursuits.
ECAs provide a variety of optional events after the school day for students to choose from. These may be extensions of CCAs or other activities. Many of these activities are carried out by our school staff who are passionate about sharing their interests with the students. We have also worked hard to find the best external providers to enrich our provision, working with dancers, sportspeople, musicians and many more to ensure that our children can follow their passions.
Co-curricular activities, clubs and societies
From year 1, students are able to attend clubs and societies during lunchtimes. They are also able to participate in a rotation of co-curricular activities within the school day to find new experiences. These are run by our teaching staff as they know the students best, which allows them to broaden and enrich their curricular timetables.
The CCA programme works alongside curriculum lessons to provide an outstanding educational experience for our students. The aim is to help students balance the academic and co-curricular aspects of their lives, to allow as many students access to as many different opportunities as possible and to provide a structure for ensuring that all students take advantage of the programme, thereby embedding the habits and values of commitment and wider education. From Year 1 upwards, period 9 on a Tuesday and Thursday is taken up with these CCAs. The Senior School students' CCA will be Wednesday period 8 and 9. They are compulsory for all students.
We have optional activities after school every day of the week for reception students and older. These are after the academic curriculum and are led by our specialist teachers and our external experts to allow students to pursue their interests or to develop a new passion.
Clubs and societies
From Year 1, students are able to attend optional clubs and societies at lunchtime. For students, the co-curricular programme will provide new challenges, give them the chance to make a difference to the lives of others or simply the freedom to approach a new situation by themselves to discover and develop skills they did not realise they had. Whether your child is a footballer who needs to try new things, or an interested young person who wants to try anything, King’s Bangkok will help them be a well-rounded student who can find a balance between work and play in their lives.
