Curriculum

In the Prep School we offer a broad curriculum that places emphasis on the core subjects: English, maths and science but at the same time we appreciate the importance of breath of study. Our curriculum therefore includes art, DT, Thai, Mandarin, French, Spanish, history, geography, drama, swimming, PE, computing, music and PSHE. All of which are essential for developing the whole person.

Our curriculum follows the UK National Curriculum, as well as the 11+ and 13+ syllabus of the UK Independent Schools Examination Board. We believe that we prepare our pupils incredibly well for their transition into Senior School where they go on to take iGCSE and A level.

The RST Curriculum, across the range of academic subjects, is designed:

  • to ensure social and personal development,
  • to instill a love of learning and of individual subjects,
  • to provide academic support and acceleration as appropriate,
  • to develop a suitable work ethic and self-motivation,
  • to help each child to reach his or her academic potential, and ultimately…
  • to prepare children for IGCSE and A level.
  • RST offers 5 languages: English, Thai, Mandarin, Spanish and French.

In the Prep School, there are eight year groups:

  • Year 3: 7-8 year olds
  • Year 4: 8-9 year olds
  • Year 5: 9-10 year olds
  • Year 6: 10-11 year olds
  • Year 7: 11-12 year olds
  • Year 8: 12-13 year olds

Thai language  

In accordance with Thai regulations for international schools, all children learn Thai language  and Thai culture. The teaching of the Thai language follows distinct programmes for Thais and for non-Thais. The minimum number of lessons per week for children of Thai nationality is greater than the minimum number of lessons for those who are non-Thai. Children who hold a non-Thai passport may select whether to follow the Thai language programme or the non-Thai language programme. Children who follow the non-Thai programme will learn Spanish and/or French.

Music

Music lessons are delivered to all classes as part of our normal school timetable.  The focus is upon performance. In addition parents are able to sign their children up for individual instrumental lessons. The range of instruments on offer is extensive: piano, percussion, voice and all orchestral instruments. Pupils realise their full musical potential through playing in ensembles such as Concert Band, Orchestra, Brass, Woodwind and Percussion, as well as various age and ability-related Choirs. All lessons and ensembles (which are by selection) take place during our enhanced school day.

Sport

At Rugby School Thailand, we believe that it is important for all pupils to have regular exercise. Our main sports programme is accordingly non-chargeable, and takes place during the normal School Day.

Additional chargeable and non-chargeable sporting activities are also included in our Activities programme.
There is a sports session every day of the week for all Prep School Year groups (Year 3 and above). The main team sports are football, basketball, swimming, tag/touch rugby, athletics (‘Track & Field’), and badminton. Others sports include netball, tennis, gymnastics, cricket, cross-country running, volleyball, golf, hockey, sailing, kayaking, etc…

We strive to arrange regular matches against other schools, with every pupil having the opportunity to represent Rugby School Thailand. There are also regular inter-Division sports events.

Pupils with exceptional talent in any given sport are encouraged to develop that talent. Special arrangements can be made by discussion with the Director of Sport and the Headmaster.

In addition to the sport available through our timetabled Sports Programme, further sporting opportunities are available through our Activities programme.

Academically Gifted

As a selective School, a good number of pupils at Rugby School Thailand will be above the national average academically and some will be academically gifted. As they move up the School, pupils will be challenged academically through differentiation within each Form, through the expertise and inspiration of specialist teachers from an early age, and through an ability-based setting system in key subjects. In addition, gifted pupils may be invited to join special extension Activities for the academically able. Very occasionally, a particularly able and socially mature pupil may, after discussion with parents, be placed in the year group above.

Support for Learning, English for non-Native Speakers (EAL) and Counselling

Rugby School Thailand’s Support for Learning Department, staffed by qualified specialists and fully resourced, is able to provide 1-to-1 or small group support. The Department supports pupils with mild to moderate special educational needs, and provides specialist tuition in English as an Additional Language. Counselling is also available through the Support for Learning Department.

In addition, pupils may receive support from Form or subject teachers, or from Teaching Assistants. Our professionalism, ‘setting’ system, and our small class sizes ensure that individual care and attention is standard.

‘Homework’ or ‘Prep’

Prep School pupils in Years 3 – 8 do their homework (known as ‘Prep’) at school. There is a ‘Prep’ session every day and it takes place in the pupil’s classrooms. A teacher is present and assists as appropriate.

Assessment

Formative assessments, in the form of assessment for learning, occur every day in order to motivate pupils and to help them move to the next step in their learning. Learners are involved with self / peer assessment so that they are able to reflect on their learning and come up with strategies for progression. Peer assessment enables critical and independent thinking. Success criteria, used where appropriate, allow the learners to assess themselves and to understand how to improve. Advice for progression must also come from the teacher verbally or written in their books.

All pupils evaluate targets throughout the year allowing for full involvement in the assessment process. It is important that learners take responsibility for and reflect on how they progress in their learning.

Learning objectives are made clear to the pupils. Teachers share the learning outcomes with the learners in order to make clear the expectations.

There are many strategies of assessment that are employed in our classrooms:

  • Observation
  • Questioning & discussion
  • Photographing, videoing and audio recording work
  • Examining and testing
  • Marking work
  • Formal Assessment – Exams
  • Diagnostic testing in the form of inCAS & MidYIS
