“COBIS looks forward to many years of fruitful and fulfilling engagement with Rugby School Thailand. Along with twenty commendations across the Standards, the school is the first in the world to be awarded two blue circles. They were given for Standard Boarding and Co-Curricular provision.” COBIS report
Rugby School Thailand is delighted to announce that we have achieved Patron’s Accreditation status with the Council of British International Schools (COBIS). The School achieved accreditation and compliance across 10 standards, with 20 commendations and two prestigious Beacon status awards. COBIS is the premier global association for international British schools overseas, and has a published set of standards for membership. Rugby School Thailand is proud to have achieved these high standards which demonstrate a commitment to quality assurance, safeguarding and the welfare and development of our staff, students and school community.
COBIS schools represent over 150,000 students and employ more than 30,000 teachers. Over 250 COBIS member schools can be found in 80 countries across Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East and the Americas.
COBIS works closely with the UK Department for Education and Department for International Trade. COBIS membership shows that Rugby School Thailand is providing high-quality education with a strong British educational ethos to the community in Thailand.
We are extremely proud to be the first-ever School to be presented with two Beacon School Status awards in the areas of Boarding and Extra-Curricular, Enrichment and Engagement. The Beacon School Status is awarded for a standard where the School’s practice is “truly exceptional” and means we are an institution that can be approached for advice and guidance in these areas by other COBIS schools.
COBIS congratulated Rugby School Thailand on this outstanding achievement and at the end of the report acknowledged our remarkable achievement in a relatively short amount of time, as we only opened in September 2017.
