Welcome to the Tara Pattana International School Website in Pattaya, Thailand. I sincerely hope that the information on our site meets your approval and allows you to make an informed opinion on the quality of education we can offer your children.
Our school is now two years old and we are about to begin our third academic year with the introduction of year six. Our Governing Body is firmly established, as is our Parent Auxiliary. We have recently been examined by the Thai Inspectorate ONESQA (Office of National Education Standards and Quality Assurance). We received the highest grade awardable, thanks to our brilliant staff and the hard work they have put in to our school
Building work will begin soon on our planned Key Stage Three building in order that our current students will have continuity of education in years seven, eight and nine. We use the new Early Years Foundation Scheme for our Nursery Students and the English National Curriculum for Year Students. The new English National Curriculum will introduce significant changes next year.
All our teaching is in the English Language (except for Thai language and culture) and we offer extra classes after school in a wide range of subjects which support and assist those needing extra help. For students whose English is still developing, we can offer transitional and intensive support in the curriculum.
Our school is located in a quiet area near the Moo Baan Phu Tara and Wat Kao Sao Tung Tong on the Pattakarn Road, between Soi Nernplabwan and Soi Khaotalow. It is with easy reach of Pattaya and Jomtien and all East Pattaya.
May I cordially invite you to come and visit our school and see our facilities? Our homeroom staff are in the main English nationals and native English speakers. Other staff include our Thai teachers and office personnel, whilst extra classroom support is from highly qualified Filipino teachers. We are a small but highly effective and cohesive group.
Your children are important to us. We regard it an honour to be given the privilege to teach and look after them. Our school provides a loving and caring environment and there can be no doubt that children thrive in such a place. We can offer one day tasters, so why not pop along and give us a trial run?
Thank you for visiting our website. Please continue to do so and keep up to date with our news and developments! This year will no doubt be an exciting one with many challenges
Best wishes to you all.
