A Welcome message from Ms Caroline Drumm, Head of Primary

“Regent’s International School is supportive and welcoming and is built around strong community values. This enables your child to make a great start to their education. The time that children spend in school should be happy, productive and provide strong foundations for the future. At Regent’s International School we believe in developing the whole child so that pupils can rise to different challenges and build a sense of achievement. Children learn best when they are secure and happy, which is why we provide the inspiration and high expectations for children to fulfill their potential.

We want to enrich pupils’ experiences and engage them fully in their learning. To do this, we want children to understand what it means to be a good learner. We want to give them the confidence and skills to learn both in class and independently. We provide a broad and interesting curriculum but focus on developing mastery and depth. Children will be given the opportunities to learn new skills and to apply them to a range of contexts so that they become proficient. Children who not only know what to learn, but know how to learn, become independent, resilient and intrinsically motivated.

We are happy you have chosen Regent’s International School and we look forward to see your child grow and develop under our care! Thank you!”

Primary curriculum

At Regent’s we are passionate about ensuring each child gets the most out of their education as we strive to create a community of life-long learners. We recognise the importance of the Primary Years as the foundation of their education and believe their time of development and discovery should be inspiring and exciting

The English National Curriculum is made up of the following academic Key Stages:

  • Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2 for students aged 4-7 years old)
  • Key Stage 2 (Years 3 – 6 for students aged 7-11 years old)

We divide the management of our school into Lower Primary Phase Year 1-3 and Upper Phase Year 4-6.

In Key Stage 1

In this stage we provide a rich curriculum, building on the English National Curriculum (ENC) to meet the needs of a multi-cultural student body in an international environment. Areas of study include: Maths, English, History, Geography, Science, Art, Design Technology, ICT, Physical Education and Foreign Languages (Mandarin and Thai), with emphasis placed on English language progression, with a special department designed for children who are new to English. We strongly believe the role of school goes beyond academic excellence. Through our membership and commitment to Round Square, we ensure your child develops international awareness, leadership skills, environmental awareness, a sense of adventure and commitment to the service of others. We greatly value the Thai culture in which we live, and we integrate it through Thai lessons and cultural events among others.

​Key Stage 2

This stage provides a rich, stimulating and challenging learning environment. We follow the ENC although some content is adapted to suit our location and the international diversity of our children. Emphasis is placed on English, Maths and Science, with specialist teaching for Thai, Mandarin, Music, Drama, PE and Art, as well as an array of available co-curricular activities. Our Primary building has dedicated Music, Art, Drama and Reading rooms in addition to an extensive library, ICT suite, Swimming Pool, Auditorium and playing field. Teaching strategies are contemporary. All staff work collaboratively and creatively to plan lessons that are varied, fun, personalised and meet the needs of each child. Alongside our regular timetable, there are also opportunities for learning outside the classroom. Children are encouraged to be inquisitive, and to take responsibility and initiative. This is to ensure that the standards that are achieved at the end of Year 6 meet and surpass the requirements for entry into Secondary schools modelled on the British system.
