Time flies, SISB will be celebrating her 15th anniversary during this academic year. From a humble beginning in 2001 at the Ekkamai campus, she has grown with the addition of two campuses at Pracha Uthit and Suvarnabhumi. Ekkamai continues to provide nursery and kindergarten education while Pracha Uthit campus provides nursery education right up to Year 13 (UK Cambridge Advanced Level). Suvarnabhumi campus provides nursery to primary education. With the ever-increasing student population, SISB embarked on an expansion at the Pracha Uthit campus to provide state-of-the-art facilities to our students. Construction of the new secondary section campus has started and is expected to be completed by August 2016. The secondary students can look forward to having lessons and activities in the ultra-modern 6-floors academic block, a double-storey sports hall, a swimming pool, and two dormitory blocks catering to both male and female students and a performing arts centre housing a 500-seater concert hall, music rooms, art rooms and a recording studio. This will thus free up the rooms in the existing buildings for the primary section where the student population is also increasing.

The school continues in its effort to provide a quality education to its students from nursery to kindergarten and subsequently right up to the advanced level. Other than classroom lessons, students are provided with various experiential learning such as enrichment programmes and extra-curricular activities within and outside the school including overseas learning journeys to develop sound values, life skills, leadership skills, confidence, resilience, teamwork, cultural awareness and compassion for the less fortunate.

All our teachers are trained and possess at least a general degree, if not a master degree, work as a team in developing the students holistically and inculcating in them the school values of independence, responsibility, respect and resilience (IR3). To ensure that the education provided by the school is comparable to world standard, we are accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS), New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and the Office for National Education, Standards and Quality Assessment (ONESQA). We also hold the Basic Independent Award Centre (IAC) License to deliver The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award.

As we continue to provide a quality education and learning experiences for the students placed under our charge, we look forward to the continued strong support and partnership of our parents and the community in helping our students to succeed in the Spirit of Excellence.
