RST Covid Education Support

August 4, 2020

Rugby School Thailand (RST) offers a genuine short-term alternative for parents in Thailand whose children, due to COVID restrictions/concerns, are unable to return to or to start their planned UK Independent School Education overseas.

With concerns about returning your child to the UK, your child is welcome to enrol for their upcoming term with us to continue with a less-disruptive education. We offer a solution that not only helps salvage academic learning but also reclaims physical education, co-curricular activities, and social wellbeing.  We are here to help… 

A SAFER ALTERNATIVE TO THE UK, EU & US?

Thailand remains lower than ever on the COVID-19 pandemic charts. As the US/EU and other areas of Asia continue to tackle a pandemic crisis, Thailand is well on the way to recovery with a total of around 3,000 confirmed cases, and few or no new cases daily.

We understand that many people are in a state of flux due to the pandemic. Worried about a second wave of the virus? Not sure how long the UK or US will take to recover from their current state? Can’t get your child back to Australia or NZ? Confused about the changing rules on quarantine?

We’re offering new enrolments the chance to part ways with remote-learning, and take advantage of a limited commitment offer* to enrol at our incredible school for a short-term. Whether you see it as a short term solution or not, we’re here to help you through this difficult time and give your child the education they deserve.

SENIOR CURRICULUM

RST Senior School prepares pupils for iGCSE and A Level examinations, and adopts a timetable very much based upon that of Rugby School UK. In the Senior School we continue to drive academic success as student’s begin to refine their key subject interests and prepare for exams.

RECOUP lost SPORTs, GAMES, CO-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES AND GAIN ACCESS TO OUR WORLD-CLASS FACILITIES

Remote-Learning results in the loss of physical education which is a vital aspect of developing the whole person. By joining us on an interim term, your child will benefit from taking part in our energising physical education classes. Our physical education and sports classes will help ensure your child receives a daily healthy routine. 

One of the many advantages of joining a short-term with RST is the use of our incredible facilities which continue to grow within our 90-acre school campus. This year’s most notable addition to the campus is our enormous new Webb Ellis Sports Hall, which is due to be complete for the upcoming term starting in September. 

Your child can benefit from accessing all of our school facilities from lake sailing to tennis court sessions!
