Bangkok Patana School

Bangkok Patana School Bangkok was founded in 1957 to provide a British-style curriculum for the children of English speaking expatriates and others living in Bangkok. As a non-profit making Foundation, the school currently has an enrolment of 2, 200 students. Over 20% of the students are British and 80% of the staff are recruited directly from the UK or from British international schools.

The superbly resourced 17 hectare campus, situated in Bangna, includes state-of-the-art classrooms and IT facilities, new Secondary and renovated Primary libraries, three swimming pools, an indoor sports centre, tennis courts and games pitches. The technologically advanced Arts Centre offers world-class facilities for students, teachers and the community. Bangkok Patana Schools’ mission is to ensure that students of different nationalities grow to their full potential as independent learners in a caring British international community.

Students range from 18 months to 19 years of age and follow the English National Curriculum until they sit GCSE/IGCSE examinations at age 16. Senior students take the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma or Certificate in Year 13 and go on to attend leading universities in the UK and throughout the world. Our strong academic and extra-curricular programme nurtures students of over 60 nationalities to fulfill their individual potential.
