Key Stage 1

Year 1 and Year 2 are known collectively as Key Stage 1 in accord with the English National Curriculum terminology.

At Bangkok Patana School the English National Curriculum provides the basis for our formal curriculum at Key Stage 1, which is modified and extended to give a broad and balanced programme relevant to the backgrounds and experiences of our international student body. Extra-curricular Activities extend the opportunities for students even further.

Aspects of the curriculum are explained to parents at meetings held at the beginning of each academic year. Also, throughout the year, Curriculum Mornings for Parents are held to explain different areas of the curriculum in greater depth. Further details may be found in the Curriculum Guide for Key Stage 1.

We extend an invitation for any parents interested in enrolling their children at Bangkok Patana School to visit us and take a tour of the dedicated Year 1 and 2 Building, located across from the Primary Office. Each Year group occupies one floor of the building, and each floor has its own Play Den, Information and Communications Technology lab and library of Year group appropriate books. Key Stage 1 students also have their own playground and playing field as well as sharing in the resources of the wider school.
