What is RISE?
The Regents International Study and English (RISE) Programme has been specially designed for students aged from 14 to 17 who aim to:
Gain access to the mainstream courses at Regents but who need to improve their English language skills first.
Study the IB Diploma or A-Levels at a British boarding school in the UK or elsewhere, but who need to improve their English language skills first
Try boarding school life close to home before committing to move to a school further afield, such as one in North America or the UK
Spend a rewarding one-, two-, or three-term period at a British international boarding school, improving their English, enriching their knowledge of a range of subjects and being introduced to the wonderful country of Thailand
What’s new in RISE?
We are pleased to announce the academic make-up of RISE. Almost half of all lessons (20 per week) will be devoted to specialist English language tuition. With no more than 8 students to each teacher, the lessons will be suitable for a wide range of learners, from those who have no English to those who have already attained a reasonable standard. Students on RISE will learn to read and respond with thought to a variety of texts, express themselves in English and to write using academic vocabulary.
In addition to English, students on RISE will be able to build a bespoke curriculum based on the following set of subjects:
Maths, Science, Design Technology, Art and Design, ICT, Geography, History, Business & Economics
RISE to build on outstanding track record
RISE may be a new programme at Regents, but it certainly won’t be the first time we’ve welcomed a student into school for a single academic year. In August 2013, we were joined by 16 year old Antonia from Germany, who is just nearing the end of her three terms as a Year 12 boarder. Has she benefitted from the experience? Here’s what her father has to say:
“My 16-year-old daughter, Antonia enjoyed a very rewarding academic year at Regents. She learnt much from the school’s British and international education system and at the same time experienced Thai culture first-hand. Living in the school’s boarding house allowed her to meet other young people from a wide range of nationalities and backgrounds. I would recommend the school to other parents.”
