Welcome to SPIP
Satit Prasarnmit International Programme (SPIP)
International education immersed in Thai Culture.
Knowledge, Integrity, Citizenship
Students are enriched by different programmes we offer at SPIP’s. Besides a vast academic programme, there are co-curricular programmes. Refit and newly built venues have been built for specialist subjects. Speech, music and drama are further enhanced through assembly presentations.
The International Cambridge Curriculum was chosen as the main academic programme at SPIP’s as it challenges the students to develop many life skills and 'go the extra mile.'
Students are encouraged to be individuals. They are encouraged to speak up, to share opinions and know that their contribution is valued. Quiet classrooms rarely exist at SPIP’s!
We are a small family orientated school. The students know the teacher and the teacher conversely know the students. Although there is a relaxed atmosphere, standards are emphasized and adhered to. There is a competitive nature, but also a supportive environment.
SPIP’s is indeed significant as it is still the only government school programme to offer the International Cambridge Curriculum.
SPIP’s offers our students a unique opportunity to not only engage in an international curriculum, but are also be prepared to form part of Thai society while safe guarding their cultural awareness.
Students leave us as independent thinkers and learners able to participate in the ever-changing economic environments. They are equally confident in working on their own as well as within a team, group task environments.
SPIP student develop life-long learning skills and are encouraged to not only listen, but also to share ideas.
SPIP’s prides itself on a low teacher/student ratio. Thus classes are smaller than most so more individual attention can be given to the students. SPIP teacher see the students as individual learners and are able to cater to a variety of learning needs. Students in turn, enjoy a relaxed learning environment where they are encouraged to ask questions freely and be part of their learning process. Classes collaborate across the year groups and even the learning areas. Individualism is celebrated and encouraged so student can leave us as proud, competent and confident members of society.
As we belong to three international external examining bodies we are able to offer our students high standard internationally accepted certifications. Cambridge International Examinations (CIE), Cambridge ESOL and Edexcel are all offered by SPIP’s. CIE overs Check Point Exams in English, Maths and Science in year 9, a variety of IGCSE subjects in year 11 and Advanced Subsidiary and Advanced Level Subjects in year 12 and 13 respectively, the latter giving students access to both national and international universities.
We encourage students to be part of the learning process and not just an absorptive sponge of knowledge. Students engage practically in their lessons not only in the laboratories, but also in the social sciences as well. There are many field trips to immerse the in everyday practical environments which extend the learning beyond the textbooks. Students also spend a week away from home on an academic residential camp which adds to the learning experiences. Students are also offered a chance to attend international summer school courses across the world to enrich their learning experiences both academically and culturally.
Learning Outside The Classroom
Sports plays an integral and important part of the learner’s education. We do not only offer PE lessons as part of the school day for all, but also part of the subject choice curriculum for years 10 &11. Our facilities offer the students both indoor and outdoor opportunities as we have a fully equipped gymnasium as well as a swimming centre together with football fields. We belong to the Greater Bangkok Athletics Conference which is a collection of international schools competing against each other in various sporting leagues. We also run inter-house competitions together with our annual athletics day and swimming gala.

What Our Students Say
“During my time at SPIP’s I really got a sense that the teacher cared a great deal about us not only as learning students, but also as developing teenagers. They were there as mentors and confidants who stopped me many times from simply giving up on difficult challenges. My friends I made at SPIP’s were and remain a very important part of my life and I am really grateful of the time I spent at SPIP’s from an academic as well as a social point of view. ”BestClass 2016
“SPIP’s did not only provide me with a good and diverse academic programme which challenged me and opened up many doors to further academic development, but is also engaged me in competitive sporting matches with other schools. From this atmosphere, I can really say that I thoroughly enjoyed my time at SPIP’s and feel confident that it is given me a good foundation to carry on with my career choice. ”KornClass 2016
“SPIP had given many remarkable experiences to me. The teachers here had always supported me, not just in class, but all the way through my school life. SPIP had also given me chances to display my abilities, helped me develop them and helped me become the best of myself.
