Disparity in Global Cost of Boarding Revealed

06 November 2015

It may be a relatively unknown British boarding school to those living outside of Thailand, but Regents International School Pattaya is beginning to make a name for itself amongst families around Asia and elsewhere who are looking for top-quality boarding schools, writes Head of Admissions and Marketing, Tim Eaton.

  • Regents boarding school in South East Asia

Why? Well, for a start Regents is the first and only boarding school in the world to be collaborating with The Juilliard School in New York, the world-famous performing arts conservatory. Then there are the school’s academic results: with students averaging an excellent 34 points in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) – and one student in 2015 scoring 44, putting her amongst the top 1% of students in the world – Regents is out-punching many of the world’s best-known boarding brands.

The school’s owner, Nord Anglia Education, has invested over USD 7.5 million in new facilities in the last three years alone, including boarding accommodation, and grown the number of highly-qualified teachers to cope with the unprecedented increase in demand: Regents has witnessed a net increase of 250 students in just over two years.

 Parents get all that and more for so much less money than they would pay for an equivalent boarding education for their child in the UK, North America and Asia. In terms of tuition and boarding costs, Regents tops the value-for money chart below:
