From the headmaster
"Schools should prepare their students for life and especially life after school. Consequently, education must embrace the whole child and their well-being well beyond the knowledge he or she acquires in the classroom and help them achieve their maximum human potential.
"At Thames British School, your child will be learning in a safe environment which fosters respect for others and its natural counterpart, respect for oneself and self-esteem.
"Your child will be prepared for the wider world by being encouraged to develop skills in independent research and critical thinking, while also learning to work in teams. Being able to think outside the box will be increasingly necessary in our rapidly changing world.
"As most of the teaching and learning is through the medium of the English language, your son or daughter will learn not only to speak English fluently but to think in English as well, an invaluable asset in today's global marketplace. Your child's British education qualifications and International Baccalaureate are internationally respected and accepted by employers and universities worldwide.
"Thames is accredited by Cambridge Assessment International Education, a department of the University of Cambridge. In Cambridge, Thames has a critical friend who not only monitors our schools to ensure the highest standards are maintained, but also provides continuous pedagogical support to ensure that our schools are always up-to-date with developments in British education.
"We believe that the education we offer prepares children to become fully developed and well-informed citizens with enhanced prospects for access to higher education and the best employment opportunities.
