Paragon Partners Thailand in association with North London Collegiate School (NLCS) has announced plans to open a branch in Bangkok in September 2020.
NLCS Bangkok will become the first all-girls international school in Thailand and will join the growing family of NLCS schools in Dubai, Jeju (Korea) and London, Michael Burke, NLCS Director of Education (International Projects) said on Monday.
NLCS was the first academic girls’ school in the UK. Founded in 1850 by Frances Mary Buss, a pioneer of women’s education, NLCS became the model for girls’ schools throughout the country.
NLCS Bangkok campus will be spread over 30,000 square metres and boast state-of-the-art facilities.
It aims to recruit the best subject specialist teachers from the UK and international schools worldwide. Before coming to Bangkok, all teachers will receive training at NLCS to bring a thorough understanding of the school’s ethos and standards of excellence, giving them the means to provide the support, guidance and encouragement that is needed for students to flourish academically and socially.
