English schools in Asia
Located in the heart of South East Asia at the south eastern corner of Bangkok. Bangkok Patana School offers a world class education in the British tradition to over 2000 children and young adults from fifty nations. One of our core values is a belief that the environment in which education takes place should, as much as possible, be drawn from both the culture of the region as well as elements of its philosophy. First impressions of Patana consistently reflect a sense of peace and calm, and spaciousness. We teach our students the value and importance of the individual, of the need to stretch the mind and exercise the body, and we do this in an atmosphere which also stresses natural beauty and inner tranquillity.
We are an academically directed school, focussed on our commitment to offer all of our students the best intellectual and physical preparation for higher education. We are also a school which aims to equip those students who require it with a comfortable transition either to their home education system, or within the international school network. Our approach emphasises that education is a holistic enterprise, not just a set of compartmentalised activities and curricula. It is also an enterprise which respects and celebrates differences – differences in culture, language, tradition, as well as differences in learning and teaching styles. Within the context of the English National Curriculum and the International Baccalaureate we aim to offer an education of sufficient breadth and depth to prepare for the demands of changing social and economic dynamics.
Inspired by the teachings of the Buddha and influenced by Western philosophical thinking, East and West combine here in a search for enlightenment. Bangkok Patana is a rich crossroads, in a time of exciting change, dedicated to stretching the minds and the hearts of those who will be the next generation’s leaders. We believe that Patana is one of the most energising schools you will find anywhere. With an outstanding staff of dedicated professionals and a first class facility and ancillary resources, it would be difficult to reach any other conclusion. But don’t just take our word for it, visit us and see for yourself.
