Patana is very much a community school and involvement of parents is an integral
part of our life. Formal aspects of this include parent-teacher consultation sessions,
presentations where parents are invited to view and participate in areas of the
curriculum and induction sessions for parents of new students.
The Parent Teacher Group, elected annually, organises fund-raising and
social events such as International Day and Splash Day and welcomes
new parents to the school community.
Bangkok Patana School has its own Transport Department to provide a safe
and efficient service between home and school. The service is offered
across an extensive part of the city but cannot be guaranteed to all
districts. All of our 215 air-conditioned buses are equipped with a
mobile telephone and are independently checked at regular intervals.
Each bus seats no more than 8 children and a monitor.
Bus drivers and monitors participate in training programmes in order to
meet our requirement of safety and reliability.
Please apply to the School Transport Office for enrolment or for further

All students at Bangkok Patana wear a uniform with the exception of Years
12 & 13 who follow a strict dress code. Students across the school
are required to wear black leather (or simulated leather) shoes as part
of the uniform.
The uniforms have been designed with consideration to comfort in a hot
climate and functional ease for children. Secondary Division students
in Years 7 to 11 have their own distinctive uniform which allows for
a choice in colour and design.
Uniforms can be purchased at the school shop.
