The inauguration of the city campus of Shrewsbury International School Bangkok was held last week with the attendance of Mr. Brian Davidson, the British ambassador, Sir David Lees who is Shrews bury International School Bangkok’s board of governors’ chairman and Shrews bury School UK’s governing body chairman, Mr. Tim Haynes. The location of the school is close to a modern hotel in Sukhumvit where it sandwiched with Rama IX Road. The total land area is 15 rai or equal to 2.4 hectare. For the first academic year of the school, there are a total of 168 students that are officially enrolled.
The school is designed to handle kids between the age of 3 and 11 years old. A large amount of money was allocated for the investment of the school amounting to 2,600 million baht. It is the sister school of the well-known Riverside Campus, the Shrews bury International School. The main reason why the extension was built was because of the waiting list at the Riverside Campus and the management wishes to accommodate these students.
Ms. Dennison used to be the head of the Riverside Campus’ Junior School of Shrewsbury. She said that it has been 15 years since the school has been established and they have managed to maintain a good reputation in terms of excellence. She is positive that the two campuses will be providing equal standard of learning. This plays a huge part in the decision making of the parents thus they have decided to enrol their kids at the City Campus.
She added that parents have consented to send their children to school there because the curriculum is designed mainly for primary school students. The parents are also happy to know that their children’s teachers are all qualified individuals that were hired from Britain. Majority of the teachers in the City Campus were also previously assigned in the Riverside Campus.
Once the students have completed their primary school learning there, they are guaranteed a spot at the Riverside Campus’ secondary level. Parents who wish to check out the campus but living far can book a modern hotel in Sukhumvit for close access while in the city.
