“Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value” Albert Einstein
I often find myself in conversation with people who want to know what is special about the education we seek to deliver at the Regent’s School Pattaya. Education is a complex business and therefore it is never easy to give a quick reply. The school’smission and culture cannot be easy to understand by words alone. In our most recent external report, the inspectors summarised ‘students thrive in response to the rich variety of learning experiences. An excellent ethos underpins school life. Relationships are outstanding.’ One might ask where these characteristics come from. My simple answer is that they come from the staff and students themselves. The principles we teach about service to others support academic and other successes throughout the school and empower students not only to help us make the difference to the world around us but also to achieve our personal goals. Many of our IGCSE students achieve great academic success, last year we had results that were the best in Thailand and one that was the best in the world. Meanwhile, the same students contribute to the school’s musical, dramatic and sporting success. Furthermore, they join in our many community projects, learning from and contributing to others who are less fortunate. We want all our students to become young people of success and value.
