Welcome from Head of School


Tara Pattana International School is a small caring school in which everyone knows each other. The school has a real mix of international students that creates a spirit based on diversity, respect and understanding. We are at the centre of the international community we serve and take great pride in ensuring that interaction with the school is a happy and fulfilling experience for the whole family.

The school is situated close to the centre of Pattaya, a lively and dynamic city on the east coast of Thailand. The curriculum makes full use of our own school garden, banana plantation, proximity to the city, beaches and rainforests with regular trips and outdoor education to enhance classroom study.

We understand that students learn best when they are happy and settled at school. Students can start in Nursery aged 18 months and stay until they are 18. Our motto is “Expect the Best”; we aim high and encourage students to never give up.

We provide a rigorous British Education with a Global Perspective for students of Early Years, Primary and Secondary age that draws its strength from the National Curriculum of England, and adapts to blend with the values of Thai culture.

Our teachers are passionate and have high expectations of learning that inspire students to reach their full potential, develop skills and create well-rounded individuals.  Teachers engage in action research projects which ensures that evidence-based learning takes place in the classroom. This has led to our knowledge-led curriculum that ensures all students achieve broad and deep subject expertise.

Visit the school and you will find students that are confident, have a voice, develop deep knowledge and who have fun with their learning and know the importance of teamwork.
