International school education system

Students gain a world of opportunities with an international school education

By providing an international education, St. Andrews S107 ensures every student will have greater opportunities to access higher education and find future employment.

Any child fortunate enough to embark on an international school education will benefit from a multitude of experiences and learning programmes that do not normally exist in more traditional schools. As a result of having both students and teachers, from many different nationalities, an international school will provide an education where the positives of learning languages and experiencing new cultures are used to an advantage.

Research shows that using “new languages, meeting people of other cultures or nationalities, and learning new customs”, can “all offer the potential to develop communication skills, cultural awareness, behavioural flexibility, and social responsibility”.

By stepping through the door of an international school a student automatically becomes part of a dynamic community that offers an unparalleled situation: learning about the lifestyle, ideas, values and religions of other nations from a young age. In these schools, differing cultures and languages are no longer obstacles to learning but a wonderful opportunity to encourage diversity and inclusion, and to enrich a child’s life.

St. Andrews International School S107

Within the student base and team of teaching staff at St. Andrews S107 we are fortunate to have over 40 different nationalities – we are definitely an inclusive and completely international school! 

Our campus is situated within beautiful green grounds in an up and coming suburban area of Bangkok, and the school is easily accessible from Bangkok’s city centre and Suvarnabhumi Airport (Bangkok Airport). Every teacher and administrator at St. Andrews S107 is dedicated to providing our students with an all round positive education that will enable them to flourish and become lifelong learners and worthwhile global citizens.

The school offers a curriculum aligned with the English National Curriculum Standards using the International Baccalaureate (IB) framework, standards and practices. Students initially study subjects for examinations in International General Certificate of Education (IGCSE ) and then undertake the IB Diploma and IB Career-related Programme (CP) . These certificates are recognised internationally as entrance qualifications for higher education and offer a pathway to many universities worldwide.

Students of St. Andrews International School S107 match, and in many cases, exceed the academic achievements of children in England in both state and independent school

The important benefits of an international school education:

  • A positive understanding of different cultures via learning alongside children of different nationalities and by studying international literature and arts.
  • Learning an additional language(s) that will open doors to a far wider choice of higher education or work placements both locally, nationally and abroad.
  • Gaining a knowledge of the world beyond the local community and the motivation to consider national and global issues to become a well rounded and thoughtful world citizen.
  • International schools are committed to making the world a better place.
