We are accredited once again!

Last year, we were awarded the highest accreditation possible by CIS. Also, towards the end of last year, we were inspected by the teams from ONESQA. We are proud to announce that we are now also fully accredited, once again, with ONESQA. For those of you who may not know, ONESQA is the official Thai accreditation body that no school can operate legally without. We would like to pass our thanks to Khun Aksornprasert and the Thai team who led the process so successfully. It is great to hear that our school is recognized by official bodies as being excellent. However, it is our parents and students that really count, and we hope you feel the same way too.

Welcome to the new school year 2022-23!

We have had a fantastic start to the new school year. We have welcomed new families, students, and teachers as well as old friends. It has been lovely to feel part of such a welcoming community once again. Best of all was meeting our students and hearing of their great holiday adventures.

Awards Ceremony 2022

What a day!

This year’s prestigious Awards Ceremony was magical. We had our parents all together on-site for the first time this year, and so many of you joined in the celebration. We presented our top awards to our highest achieving students. We were also lucky enough to have our Bloomsbury’s Got Talent winners to perform on stage too. We had Hagrid and Miss McGonagall as the hosts for the event. Parents, staff, and students have all said how much they enjoyed the ceremony.

A vote of thanks to Mr. Tansey, and his team of house elves, for putting on such a fantastic show. We are looking forward to next year’s event already! It has been whispered in dark corridors that Star Wars is to be the theme.

Harry Potter Day 2022

The children of Bloomsbury celebrated the magic of the wizarding world today as they took part in a Harry Potter day. Children dressed up from the different houses; Slytherin, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and of course Gryffindor. The children took part in a celebratory parade and enjoyed a well-earned rest as they watched the Harry Potter movies. A magical day was had by all.

Congratulations Bam!

We are so proud of our Year 12 Student, Ms. Tamonwan "Bam" Hantanachart! Bam has been awarded a scholarship to study International Relations and Peace at Asia Pacific University in Japan. She has also been offered a place at Mahidol University here in Thailand to study International Relations.

Bam has been an outstanding student at Bloomsbury, excelling in her A-Level studies in English Literature, Mathematics, Physics, and especially Art and Design. The subjects she has chosen for her degree show that she is truly a Global Citizen, which is what we want all of our students to become. Congratulations, Bam! You are an inspiration to us all.

A Sense of Place by Year 9

Today year 9 took the art classroom outside. The students are doing some direct observational drawings for their new project “A Sense of Place”. The students used viewfinders to select an area of interest to draw, then set their timers to do quick studies in only 15 seconds, 30 seconds, and 1 minute. This exercise helped the students to focus on shape and form before moving on to doing their more detailed drawings. It’s always a challenge drawing from life instead of a photo but this method brings energy and originality to the art we create.

Year 7 Parachute Challenge

As part of the forces and motion section of the year 7 course we were investigating how the size and shape of a parachute determined how quickly it falls. Various shapes were tested but the equilateral triangle performed the best. Three cords performed better than four. Threading the cords onto the parachutes was a fairly tricky task!

Songkran Day 2022

Today the children and staff of Bloomsbury celebrated the more important holiday in the school year; Songkran. Songkran is the start of the new Thai year and is a chance to celebrate new beginnings. The children took part in a ceremony with a visiting monk to bless all the teachers but pouring water on their hands. The children also took part in a competition to build traditional and modern style sand pagodas. The sun shone on this joyous and auspicious day at Bloomsbury, and everyone had a wonderful day!
