Double the Future
At SBS, we not only immerse students in an international environment with the best qualified international teachers, we also practise holistic, process-based learning. Rather than cram lectures into passive receptacles, our teachers aim to nurture the global citizens of tomorrow, women and men who are able to continue learning. Through teamwork, inquiry and interactive learning, your child develops their own knowledge, knowledge that is deeper and more broadly linked to the breadth of their experiences.
To be successful in today’s world, SBS believes students have to be more than just “knowledgeable” - they need to have the characteristics of a lifelong learner to succeed in a rapidly changing world: Confident, Responsible, Reflective, Innovative and Engaged.

SBS’s curriculum has been designed to give students more opportunities. In Secondary we make sure that our students meet the requirements for Cambridge IGCSE and AS/A Level. SBS students can choose among the best international programmes in Thailand or university programmes overseas.
SBS is Cambridge International school. Emphasis is placed on the development of Cambridge learner attributes. In Year 7, SBS begins subject based teaching with specialist expert teachers. Students move between classrooms which are designed for the subjects being taught. In lower secondary, (Years 7 to 9), an emphasis is placed on building independence and responsibility for their learning.
In upper Secondary, (Years 10-13) students begin their preparations for university. SBS follows the Cambridge International Schools’ syllabus for IGCSE and AS/A Level courses. All SBS students meet and exceed Thai and international university requirements. Being a part of Rangsit University, students will have a special quota to enter Rangsit University, one of the best private universities in Thailand and transfer some credits to continue studying at Rangsit University.
Cambridge Lower Secondary (Years 7-9)
SBS Lower Secondary builds on the broad connected foundation established in Primary School allowing students in these transition years to begin to delve deeper into their studies. The level of responsibility increases as the children grow into young adults. Students are no longer in contained classrooms but move from class to class - immersed in their subject areas with specialist teachers, classrooms, laboratories and materials. SBS courses follow Cambridge lower secondary curricula.
In lower secondary students refine their knowledge of their strengths and interests. In preparation for upper secondary, students are guided by counselling staff in making choices for IGCSE and pre-university courses.
Cambridge Upper Secondary (Years 10-13)
University and beyond. In upper Secondary School, (Years 10-13), students begin their preparations for university. SBS follows the Cambridge International Schools’ syllabus for IGCSE and AS/A Level courses. Students are guided through the process of course selection in view of their university aspirations which helps students through the university application process.
For Years 12 and 13, SBS students may choose three A/AS Level Subjects corresponding to their expected university plans. Graduates are able to apply to the best international programmes in Thailand and overseas.
