The Wimbledon and Bangkok Collaboration - More Than Just a Name
King’s College School, Wimbledon is one of the world’s most academically successful schools and we have a unique partnership which means we work together to recreate the high standards at King’s College International School Bangkok (King’s Bangkok). We aim to provide the highest standards in academic excellence, our co-curricular programme and pastoral care, which are the three pillars we have replicated from King’s Wimbledon to King’s Bangkok.
In terms of teacher selection, senior leaders from King’s College School, Wimbledon have interviewed every one of our class teachers to ensure they are the best possible staff to help our students. In August 2020, King’s Bangkok will have a privilege to welcome two teachers from King’s College School, Wimbledon to begin our journey. James McAuslan and Simon Connolly will teach in the Key Stage 2 age group (years 3 to 6). They will be invaluable for Founding Head Thomas Banyard to help recreate the “King’s Way” at King’s Bangkok. We expect to welcome more leaders and teachers from King’s College School, Wimbledon to join us in academic year 2020 and near future.
On this occasion, James and Simon have shared their beliefs and ideas toward the education and how to help King’s Bangkok students succeed.
