Job overview

Rugby School Thailand (RST), a co-educational day and boarding international school set in 80 acres of glorious Thai countryside south of Bangkok, very successfully opened its doors in September 2017 for pupils aged 2-10 years. From September 2018, at least one new class will be added in every Year group. RST will also extend to Year 12 and will offer boarding from Year 3.

Rugby School Thailand is the first overseas school partnered by Rugby School UK, and it will share Rugby UK’s ethos and ‘whole person’ vision for its pupils. Rugby UK will be involved in the recruitment of senior staff and will play a key role in formulating school policies and ensuring that the high standards of Rugby School are maintained.

As such, Rugby School Thailand, unlike most international schools, will be structured according to the very best of the UK independent school model, with a Pre-Prep, a Prep and a Senior School.

The Prep School (Years 3 – 8) enjoys its own space and outstanding facilities within the school’s extensive 80 acre site. Starting with one class per year group up to Year 6 in September 2017, the Prep School will add Years 7 and 8 in September 2018 and has been designed to accommodate c 400 pupils.

The Head of History will have an impressive History teaching record, will ideally be able to teach elements of Religious Studies, will have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, an eye for detail, a commitment to the ethos and values of Rugby School, and a willingness to participate fully in the life of a busy day and boarding school.
