Whenever I travel to Thailand to visit Regents International School Pattaya, I’m struck by a wonderful thought: while there are a growing number of international schools in the area, Regents is the only one that brings together global resources and a unique educational philosophy to create something truly special for students and their families. In my experience, no other school in Pattaya can compare to what students gain by studying here.
Among the many remarkable qualities that have made Regents a leading education provider, joining the Nord Anglia Education family of schools in 2012 has certainly been an integral part of the school’s success. While a fantastic school on its own for nearly 20 years, it has only been made better since joining our family. Being a Nord Anglia school makes a world of difference!
Nord Anglia schools, Regents included, know that every parent wants the best for their child. We are ambitious for our students and support them to love learning and achieve more than they ever thought possible. This is done by providing opportunities they would not be able to experience if they studied elsewhere.
Nord Anglia schools have incomparable benefits. Our curricula are enhanced through collaborations with the world’s leading universities and organisations such as Juilliard, MIT and UNICEF. Our 50,000 students can also engage with each other through Global Campus—a cutting edge digital learning platform that connects them together, all around the globe. The power of our global family is that students can personally benefit from being connected to wide-ranging resources and ideas that take them far beyond their cultural boundaries, teaching them the skills of communication, collaboration and creativity that they will need for an ever-changing world in the future.
Another point of difference for Nord Anglia schools is our global educational philosophy, created by our Education team in Oxford, UK, which focuses on delivering the best for each child through personalised learning. At Regents, we tailor our teaching on a studentby-student basis, making sure that over 1,100 students at Regents are fully engaged in their learning and love coming to school. And we have the education track record to prove this philosophy works.
Regents’ size and history allows students to access a full range of curricula and a variety of academic subjects. Regents also offers more than 250 co-curricular clubs in a huge number of sports as well as other activities, such as sailing and dancing. In an effort to deliver more personalised learning to all students, Regents will be welcoming a new Head of Inclusion in the next academic year. Being a Nord Anglia school enables Regents to recruit and retain teachers of the highest calibre, thanks in part to additional professional development opportunities such as Nord Anglia University and our collaboration with King’s College.
Another aspect of the school that makes a difference is the facilities. Globally, 93% of Nord Anglia parents say our schools provide a stimulating learning environment, and I believe Regents is a perfect example. On campus, students have the advantage of an all-grass rugby pitch, two swimming pools and a world-class performing arts theatre. A Makerspace will be built over the summer holidays to provide the students with an inspiring environment for design, technology and robotics.
But what Regents is known for is delivering the highest quality education in alignment with Nord Anglia’s commitment to personalised learning, incredible collaborations with leading universities and organisations, and access to resources as part of a global network of schools.
For more than two decades, Regents has been home to successful students who have significantly benefited from an education that goes beyond the traditional, enabling their entry to the top universities in the world. I’m very proud of what has been accomplished and look forward to many more years of educational leadership from the school.
