Our focus is on developing 21st Century skills with the integrated learning of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) alongside English Communication skills. This preparation enables our students to succeed in school, at university and in their future careers.


We believe that through outstanding integrated learning in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths alongside English Communication Skills in providing the environment, curriculum and 21st Century learning experiences that will prepare our students with the skills they need to thrive.


What is STEM and why are we focussing on it? STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.  It is much more than that.  Learning STEM is a hands on approach which integrates subjects and skills in their learning experiences.  The focus of STEM education is on problem solving and developing 21st Century skills and preparing our students for the 21st Century economy and to thrive in our ever-changing 21st Century world.


21st Century Skills 21st Century skills must integrate the core skills that we apply to everyday tasks, an understanding of English, Maths, Science, ICT, and Finance. We believe we must develop critical thinking and problem solving skills, creativity, communication and collaboration skills, as it is these competencies that help us approach complex problems that face the world. Finally, to thrive in our changing environment we believe we must instil the character qualities of curiosity, initiative, persistence, adaptability, leadership and social and cultural awareness.


Community Involvement

Community life is important for our school and we want for our students to actively participate and contribute to our school community. This involvement allows the development of skills, talents and collaborative successes from participation. There are a number of ways we encourage community involvement. Through our house system, the student council and voluntary / community projects and also sharing our learning with parents and students from Pensmith Thai School. visited the temple school at Wat Sri Bunruang, about 3 km from our school to give these donations of toys and clothes. The students also shared some Christmas fun by creating Christmas trees and reading with the stud.jpg

House System
When students and staff join our school they are placed into one of 4 house teams. There are various individual and team competitions that students participate in throughout the year where they represent their house – great opportunities for collaboration, communication, and leadership.
Student Council
The Student Council exists for the student body. This means Council members listen to student voices and take actions to develop the school and improve the convenience of school life. Therefore, our students have the responsibility and right to raise issues and inform their class representatives of matters for discussion during their Student Council meetings. Moreover, through students being involved with the Student Council, they will strengthen their leadership skills and identity as representatives of the School and their community.
