Head of Primary
Welcome to the Primary section of the British International School, Phuket. Whilst I hope you can get a flavour of the school here, I do hope I will have the opportunity to welcome you to the school in person one day. Should you come, you will find a happy, lively, vibrant school in which everyone is valued and life-long learning is developed.
As Primary Principal, it is my aim to maintain and develop a happy school in which everyone is safe, treated with respect and encouraged to learn. This is made possible by the excellent staff who between them bring a wealth of experiences but are united in their intention of improving children’s learning. Our impressive facilities also enable us to help our children explore their growing interests in a whole range of areas. We value academic learning – and our children attain great results – but we also value creative areas such as the arts and sport. Personal growth is also vital for successful development. The BISP values of mindfulness of the needs of others, honesty, peaceful intentions and consideration of our actions underlie everything we do. In the Primary section, we are particularly focussing on the value of respect: for ourselves, for others and for the environment.
Our diverse school population comes from all over the world, with most children coming from outside Thailand. Additionally, we are the school of choice for many Thai families who value our international flavour, excellent academic standards and outstanding facilities. Our welcoming and supportive school community can be a particular strength for new arrivals.
It is a joy and a privilege for me to lead the Primary section of BISP. I look forward to meeting you.
