BPIS developed out of the established English/Bi-lingual (Thai-English) programme of Burapa English Programme School of Thailand (BEST) which has operated for over 20 years.
In line with the policies of the National Economics and Social Development Board of 2015, by which time Thailand had become a leading member of the ASEAN Economic Community – a significant project to drive Thai economic and industrial expansion in the Eastern Seaboard Area, the School Board of Directors unanimously agreed to establish an International School to support South Pattaya location where there was a growing community of foreign families.
BPIS established a secondary education structure founded on the UK National Curriculum (Key Stages 3-5 or Year 7-13) and initiated the process of establishing itself as an educational facility and received the licence as a new International School on March 9th 2018. It commenced the first academic year on August 20th 2018.
BPIS is a young International School proud of the collaborative work between the Student Council Members and the Academic Team, for it provides an opportunity for the students to share in the decision-making process for the welfare of the school. We have an international mindset and adhere to a policy of equal opportunities constantly working to eradicate all forms of discrimination.
Teachers from Key Stage 3-5 are able to follow an international curriculum and course outlines and lesson plans are all based on the IGCSE Schemes of Work per subject.
