The curriculum is founded on the English National Curriculum, key
stages and programmes of study, although the most appropriate features
are utilized to suit students needs. Other international and
national curricular are used to provide breadth and an international
approach, including the Thai Curriculum, which also provides the
foundation and structure for the teaching of Thai at all levels

schools and universities. The high standard of maths and science
