The Prep School at Rugby School Thailand offers a broad curriculum.
Our prep curriculum follows the British curriculum, as well as the 11+ and 13+ syllabi of the UK Independent Schools Examination Board.
Your child will focus on the core subjects: English, Maths and Science, but at the same time enjoy Art, Design Technology, Thai, Mandarin, French, Spanish, History and Geography. Drama, swimming, PE, computing, music and Personal, Social, Health and Economic lessons (PSHE) will also play a big part in nurturing them into the ‘whole person’.
In addition to preparing our young children for their transition into Senior School and their future iGCSE and A level exams, our curriculum helps them:
Our Prep School consists of six year groups:
Our prep school children enjoy the following advantages:
Our enhanced school days are optional for children in Years 3 and 4, but included in the school day of children in Year 5 and upwards. Every day after class, our children enjoy creative activities or a sport of their choice. Our exceptionally wide array of activities include debating, archery, 3D sculpting, sailing and more. The programmes let our children discover new passions and grow holistically among their peers and nature, under close guidance of our teachers. The fun, relaxing routine keeps our prep children fresh and healthy instead of weary from the rush-hour commute.
To nurture the ‘whole person’, we believe that it is important that all children exercise regularly. We offer a nonchargeable main sports programme that takes place during the normal school day, as well as additional chargeable sporting activities.
Our prep children in Year 3 and above can choose to enjoy a daily sport session. Our main team sports are football, basketball, swimming, tag/touch rugby, athletics (track and field) and badminton. Other sports include netball, tennis, gymnastics, cricket, cross-country running, volleyball, golf, hockey, sailing, kayaking and more.
Our children learn about teamwork, sportsmanship and interpersonal skills through our regular inter-division sports events. They also enjoy an opportunity to represent Rugby School Thailand through our regular matches against other schools.
For those of our children with exceptional talent in any given sport, our Director of Sport, the Headmaster and a team of experienced athletic teachers encourage them to build on such skills. We remain ready to provide the support and help with the necessary special arrangements.
Our Support for Learning Department offers one-to-one or small group counseling and support to those of our children with mild to moderate special educational needs. We also provide specialist tuition in English as an Additional Language (EAL).
During any class or activity, our children receive constant care and support from our form and subject teachers, as well as our teaching assistants.
