Primary Level: Grades 1 to 6 and Secondary Level: Grades 7 to 12

Admission requires a preliminary interview with the student by a member of our Admissions Office. There may also be a recommendation for prospective entrants to have an interview with a school principal.

This test is an essential step for us to place a child in the best situation for their learning and to determine what help they need the most. The result of the assessment will be kept for school record purposes. Parents will receive assessment feedback. The cost of the test is 2000 Thai Baht.

Where it is deemed that the applicant is likely to cause harm to our current students or disruption to the existing school ethos and organization, our policy is to give such students a second chance to continue their education.

However, it will be made clear to the applicant and their parents that we accept such students on a one-term probationary basis, and reserve the right to demand their removal at any time should patterns of behavior be unacceptable to us. The school may insist on a home-school agreement.

Annual Fee:

An annual fee of 20,000 THB for Grades 1 – 8 is payable upon enrollment. An annual fee of 50,000 THB for Grades 9 – 12 is payable upon enrollment. This fee includes breakfast, lunch, snacks, books, and one uniform. Additional uniforms can be purchased at the school office. Non-refundable.

Registration Fee:

A one-time fee of 40,000 THB is payable at registration. Non-refundable.


1,000 THB. This Group Insurance is compulsory for each child; it can only cover a maximum of 10,000 baht per incident/accident if it occurs on school grounds. Any additional costs have to be paid by the parents. The insurance can only be used three weeks after the application. Non-refundable.

(We, therefore, suggest obtaining personal health and accident insurance for your child.)

Tuition fees are required to be paid in advance on a monthly, term, or annual basis, covering the entire year. In the event of your child’s indefinite departure, please be aware that the full fee for the current month must be settled rather than a proportion based on the days attended.

Invoices will be issued on the 15th of each month, and all payments are expected to be completed by 4 pm on the 29th of the same month, at the latest.

This School receives no grant or sponsorship from any agency; hence its successful operation depends on the prompt receipt of school fees.

Families that opt for the monthly payment plan for tuition are not permitted to change to a termly or annual plan during the current academic year. However, they may adjust their payment method for the following academic year. Likewise, those who have chosen the termly payment plan are unable to switch to an annual plan during the school year, even if they attempt to prorate the annual tuition fee by the number of terms.

A seven-day grace period will be given following the 29th of each month. Should invoices remain unpaid beyond this timeframe, a ‘200 THB/day late fee’ will be applied after the 7-day grace period. This fee will continue to accrue for each day the payment remains overdue after the specified due date.

If payment is not made, or no alternative arrangements have been made with our Finance Department, the child will not be allowed to attend school from the day after the account is due. This also means that any School Bus service will be suspended until the outstanding account is settled. The School will not issue any academic result, transcript, or any official report to the students.

Tuition fee refunds for unattended days, whether on a termly or annually-based schedule, can only be calculated and processed if a parent/guardian notifies the school office at least 30 days prior to the student’s departure. Any amount of days attended within a month will be considered as one full month for fee calculation purposes. Please note that monthly-based tuition fees remain nonrefundable and will not be eligible for reimbursement.

For cases where a student is excluded from the school, NO refund will be given.
