International Schools In Phuket

If you’ve decided on relocating to Phuket, Thailand, and you have a family with young children, you will almost certainly want to know about the available schools in Phuket. There are many Thai schools on the island, but for the sake of this guide, we’ll focus on some of the bigger and more established International Schools in Phuket.

Phuket International Schools - The British International School Phuket

British International School, Phuket (BISP)

Cirriculum: British, IB

The British International School is arguably the best International School that Phuket has to offer. It’s renowned for its excellent facilities and has a strong reputation for its high standards of teaching.

A variety of language courses are available with the students benefitting from the number of Foreign teachers available. Many language courses are taught by a teacher using their first language, these include English, French, Spanish, Korean, Mandarin and Russian.

As to be expected, the British International School has a large campus spanning roughly 44 acres. Well over 800 students return to the BISP each year to enjoy great facilities such as Football Pitches, Swimming Pools, Auditoriums, Music Rooms, Arts Spaces, IT & Science Labs, Athletics Track, Gymnasium, Golf Centre and more!

You can expect an International School in Phuket of this quality will come at a premium cost per term, but certainly worth it.

Finway Internation School Phuket

Cirriculum: Finnish

One of the few international schools in the North East of Phuket, the Finnway International School offers a high-quality educational system with a great focus on developing their kindergarten students with a 0% technology policy.

There are roughly 120 students in attendance at the Finnway International School with the average class size around 15 pupils. While the school is only fledgling and doesn’t have a huge range of facilities available, they do offer a lot of extracurricular activities such as Swimming, Tennis, Ice Skating, Dance, Chinese, Chess, Horse Riding, Robotics and Coding.

Certainly a school to consider for your younger children and not as expensive as other international schools on the island.

Located in the valley of Kathu, Kajonkiet International School has beautiful natural surroundings and is easily accessible from most of the island. One of the first international schools to be aimed at Thai nationals, Kajonkiet has become very popular.

Students aged from 2 – 18 can study here and with approximately 1500 students in attendance each year, you can see this is a popular destination for locals. The faculty here mainly consists of nationals from the UK, Europe, New Zealand, South Africa and the USA. A majority of English-speaking teachers ensure that foreign languages are a strong point at Kajonkiet.

Yearly fees are in the mid-range as well, making this an attractive international school for parents wanting their children to have a good education, but also for their children to get the opportunity to mix more with Thai and Foreign students.

United World College (UWC)

If you’re located in the quieter Northern part of the island and are looking for an international school for your children, the United World College is worth consideration.

As the name suggests, the United World College is not a stand-alone college, but part of a larger organisation teaching across the globe. This has enabled the UWC to be a truly international school with teaching faculty from all over the world. It’s the only school on the island to be able to provide teaching staff from over 60 nationalities, allowing your children to enhance their worldly view and learn about cultures from all over.

The college is situated between some of the best sporting and wellness facilities Phuket has to offer which has certainly influenced UWC’s approach to student care, helping them grow physically and mentally.

Such great facilities, campus and teacher quality do come at a premium though but well worth it.
