What it means to be a British international school

We often highlight the fact that we’re a British international school in Thailand, but what does this actually mean? There are many different facets to how our British international school status infiltrate into school life, but the main thing for prospective parents to know is that we teach the British national curriculum in an international setting. This means we bring in aspects of local curriculum and other international curricula, making the education dynamic and relevant to our location.


Rugby School Thailand is the first of Rugby School UK’s international school branches. We work in genuine partnership with our sister school and employ many British teaching staff to ensure we uphold the British educational experience. Our smaller classes and longer school days, with sport, co-curricular activities and homework included, are akin to the enhanced school days of leading British independent schools. However, we also have a deep respect for our Thai location and surrounding culture, and the diverse international community we have here. We celebrate this through Thai cultural festivals, such as Loy Krathong and Songkran; Asian cultural events, such as Lunar New Year; and global days such as International Day and World Book Day. All of these things are carefully blended to create the leading British international school we have proudly created.
