Nord Anglia Education is the world’s leading premium schools organisation. We are a fast-paced and growing family of 47 international schools in China, Europe, the Middle East, South East Asia and The Americas, providing outstanding education to approximately 45,000 students from preschool through to the end of secondary education. Our schools are united by one philosophy—we are ambitious for our students, our people and family of schools. This means that we want every student to achieve more than may have ever thought possible, which we ensure through personalised learning enhanced with unique global opportunities.
About Our School
Regents International School Pattaya is like no other school in Thailand. We provide unique learning opportunities far beyond the ordinary. We are an exciting, vibrant and inclusive school which has something to offer to every child and every family in our dynamic and diverse community.
We have approximately 1200 students aged from 2 to18, from 48 different countries, spread evenly across our Early Primary, Primary and Secondary schools, including around 70 boarding students. As both a day and boarding school we encourage our students to be ambitious in their learning and believe there is no limit to what they can achieve. We are the most successful school on the Eastern Seaboard with a long-established reputation over the past 20 years. Our students are successful because our approach encourages children to think for themselves, how to question, how to learn – skills that will last them for a lifetime.
We currently follow the UK Early Years Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1,2 & 3 Curriculum, offer the iGCSE and the prestigious International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. Year after year we celebrate high academic results in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and iGCSEs, maintaining consistently high results way above the world average. Our high expectations do not stop with academic success. We want our students to develop the courage and conviction to look at the world around them and act to make it a better place.
We recruit outstanding teaching staff, specialists in their field, who support each student to achieve to the best of their ability. Success takes many different forms and we celebrate them all; sportsmanship in competition, the courage to speak publicly on stage for the first time and making friends with children from many different countries and backgrounds. We also believe trying and failing are vital ingredients for success in every area of life.?
Regents is also a member of the Round Square organisation and as such we embed the ethos of Global Citizenship within our curriculum and learning opportunities both in and outside the classroom. We value very highly our wide range of community partnerships and look to appoint teachers who are also passionate about active community service for themselves and the children in their care. We are very proud of the action our students and community members take and our commitment to our local community partners.
Our school is located in a beautiful, rural area, surrounded by palm trees, just outside of Pattaya on the east coast of the Gulf of Thailand. We are about 100km south of Bangkok and just a 90minute drive from Bangkok International Airport. Opened in 1994 we have a long-established reputation as one of the most sought-after international schools in Southeast Asia.
Each Nord Anglia Education school is unique in character and designed to meet the needs of its community. We believe that being part of our family of 47 schools gives them a special advantage. Working together, we can achieve more than we can individually. Our schools have a wide range of resources and support to enhance our students’ success. We also create unique opportunities to benefit our students and people such as the Global Campus, Nord Anglia University, and our collaborations with The Juilliard School, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and King’s College London.
