Global education at King’s Bangkok
At the front of King’s Bangkok’s campus stand 25 flagpoles, each representing the nationalities of our students and staff, demonstrating that we respect and welcome everyone to the King’s Bangkok family. We believe a diverse range of nationalities is important for a school’s atmosphere, as it is an opportunity for children to learn about differences and learn about living in a diverse community. Despite this diversity, one thing that truly binds our community together is the language we speak on a daily basis: Every student will leave us with the highest standards of English, so that they can communicate effectively with their peers and the wider world, where English is still the most widespread language. This is a gateway to well-rounded learning experiences, through diversity of thought, society, and culture.
Whilst King's College School, Wimbledon - our sister school – takes pride in its British curriculum, both King's Wimbledon and King's Bangkok realise the importance of a truly global education for children in the 21st century. As a result, King's College International School Bangkok has implemented several initiatives for our founding families so we can all benefit from a global education.
For example, at King's Bangkok, children from Reception onwards learn Mandarin as their third language. Then, in the Senior School, students will be able to choose another modern foreign language, such as French and Spanish. All our children learn from the most qualified teachers, who have experience not only in the UK, but from around the world, sharing perspectives with our children to help them grow a great heart. Our lessons provide the foundation for our children to learn about different cultures, which teaches them to respect and empathise with people from different backgrounds. We also include parents on a variety of occasions, such as International Day, when every family can celebrate the importance of their heritage.
King’s Bangkok now welcomes applications for boys and girls aged 2–15 (Pre-nursery to Year 10) for the academic year 2021. Years 11–13 will open in the subsequent academic years.
