|Bloomsbury is located in Songkhla, southern Thailand. Its academic provision is derived from the National Curriculum of England (with local adaptation); it offers a range of courses culminating in the award of certificates from UK-based international curricular bodies. It holds centreship from Cambridge Assessment International Examinations; it is applying for centreship from Oxford International AQA Examinations, and it also prepares candidates for other externally assessed examinations (such as Cambridge English). Its IGCSE results have been consistently encouraging; it recently inaugurated its Sixth Form (in which AS/A Level studies are followed). Bloomsbury is a member of the Council of International Schools and is pursuing accreditation via the latter. |
The school has two branches: (Pre-)Primary and Secondary. Class sizes are relatively small (on average 7 students: 1 teacher); Primary teachers are supported by Teaching Assistants.
English is the main medium of instruction; apart from Chinese and Thai classes, all subjects are taught in English and delivered by qualified and experienced native speakers from the UK, Canada, US, Australia etc.
Academic managers liaise to ensure smooth transitions between years; subject teachers meet regularly to ensure an integrated curriculum across each year. Specialist support addresses special needs; a Learning Support specialist expedites such arrangements. An EAL department delivers bespoke assistance to students whose English requires extra attention. Students enrolling from schools with different curricula are assisted initially until ready to join mainstream classes; ‘class buddies’ ensure they feel welcome among peers from Day 1.
Bloomsbury offers a broad, balanced range of cuisines for luncheon; staff and students share the same refectory (thus contributing to Bloomsbury’s welcoming community-like atmosphere). The school operates a clinic with a professional nurse on duty full-time; warden-supervised boarding facilities accommodate students opting for residential status.
An extensive range of social, cultural, sporting and entertainment events is organised regularly; an eclectic ECA (extra-curricular activity) programme (with the emphasis on enjoyment and fun) complements more formal classroom learning.
