THE BRITISH CURRICULUM AT ST. ANDREWS INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL BANGKOK
At our private school in Bangkok, we follow a version of the National Curriculum for England which has been tailored to the needs of our international student community and prepares our students for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) exams in Year 10 and Year 11. During the final two years of high school, students study the International Baccalaureate (IB), a highly esteemed and internationally recognised university preparatory course which leads to the award of an IB Diploma.
St. Andrews International School Bangkok is driven by a British-style curriculum which has been adapted for the international environment and our location in Thailand. This means that our unique curriculum reflects the best of British and international education, while celebrating Thailand’s culture.
