Curriculum UK Welcome to Harrow International School Bangkok, the original Harrow International School in Asia and now thriving, with over 1,500 students from over 37 different nationalities on our green 35-acre site in North Bangkok, Thailand. We are a co-educational day and boarding school following the English National Curriculum.
In our Early Years Centre and Pre Prep and Prep Schools, our pupils are taught a bespoke Harrow Bangkok curriculum, incorporating the best of educational practice of England, yet with global influences. Students in the Senior School study for IGCSE, AS and A Level examinations. The School prides itself on its reputation for academic rigour, and our Sixth Form students go on to study at top universities around the world, predominantly in the UK and USA.
The School ethos
All that we do in our School reflects our mission or ethos statement, Leadership for a better world. Whether within lessons, or the diverse 'Leadership in Action' (LiA) extra-curricular programme on offer, we focus on developing in our young people the attributes and desires that will make a positive difference to the communities that they encounter, now and in the future. The Harrow Bangkok values of leadership, team work, service, resilience and creativity form the core of our sporting philosophy. Our state-of-the-art facilities include a gymnastics hall, double air-conditioned sports hall, extensive fields with natural grass surfaces, a saline swimming pool, lake, fitness room, climbing wall, and flood lit tennis courts.
Specialists in boarding
Harrow Bangkok is the leader of boarding in Thailand, and we are currently expanding our capacity in the Boarding Houses to meet demand. Life in boarding provides fantastic opportunities for children to advance academically and socially. Boarders are engaged in a wide range of after-school activities as well as provided with a well-structured study routine which allows them to complete homework. Our boarders enjoy particular success in their examinations, and four of our last six Head Boys and Girls were boarders.
HBuild: our vision for the future
We have occupied our current Campus for 10 years, and as we continuously innovate and develop the educational experience we offer, our facilities are expanding accordingly. We are entering an exciting new phase of our School’s journey: an extensive site redevelopment programme, called HBuild, which will see the commissioning of new facilities and expansion of existing buildings from now until 2018. We have just celebrated the completion of the new Sixth Form Centre and multipurpose athletics centre, and the expansion of the Early Years Centre. We look forward to the completion of a Design and Technology Department and new Creative Arts facilities. HBuild will also see the building of six new Boarding Houses, each housing 60 children. This will ensure that we have all the resources we need to deliver an education fit for the 21st century.
