FOREWORD I am delighted to introduce the Student Achievement booklet for the 2015/16 school year and to share with you the incredible achievements of our students. Bangkok Patana School is an independent, international school with well-established traditions of excellence and a very exciting future. We are widely recognised as one of the higher performing schools in Asia with an enviable record of academic, sporting and cultural achievements. The real essence of Bangkok Patana School is that it puts great teachers together with great students. It gives each the resources, facilities and freedom to get on with learning. It adapts the best of both traditional and modern teaching and assessment pedagogy. Results are constantly reviewed and targets set to bring improvement. We recognise that learning is the primary purpose of the school and, as such all members of our community engage in developing their intellectual, creative and physical talents. Reading through this book, it will become obvious that Bangkok Patana School is achieving its mission and vision which you can see on the inside front cover. Our students are consistently succeeding in a wide area of academic benchmarks. Their high scores are a celebration for not only the individual students but also for their teachers, parents and the school. In conclusion, all of us here at Bangkok Patana School believe learning should be challenging and enjoyable and we strive to maintain that balance to ensure our students confidently and successfully face the challenges of an ever increasingly complicated world as they strive to reach their full potential.

Noli cedere cognoscere.Don’t cease to learn. Matthew G. Mills | Head of School MSc.Ed.(Hons), B.Ed., Adv.Dip.Teaching| December 2016


Student Achievement 2015/16

THE PRIMARY SCHOOL Clare Sharp | Primary Principal In the Primary School we have continued to focus on making learning visible to the child. These three driving questions have become further embedded in the students:

WHERE AM I NOW?

WHERE AM I GOING?

HOW AM I GOING TO GET THERE?

To do this, we have consistently developed the use of:

SUCCESS CRITERIA = WHERE AM I NOW?

TRANSPARENT GOALS = WHERE AM I GOING?

FORMATIVE FEEDBACK = HOW AM I GOING TO GET THERE?

This is evident within all of our classrooms where you will see a success criteria ladder in use. Within the ladders children know that they have to include all the aspects; these may be presented visually to the children. However, it is not a hierarchical ladder but an inclusive ladder and this helps the student include key elements of learning at the right point. It requires them to understand the success criteria and apply it accordingly. To do this well a child needs a deeper understanding of the key concepts in learning and we believe this is helping us to develop better learners. Within our target setting this year we set ambitious and challenging targets for student achievement. This practice is mirrored in the classroom. The balance of challenge is important, meaning that the learning is set where it is not too easy and not too hard. By doing this we ensure that each child embraces the challenge of the learning. You will see in the following pages our academic success alongside our sporting and musical achievements. Every child with their individual skills and talents is important to us and we seek to foster an individualised approach in how we teach while also understanding how the individual learns. With this in mind we celebrate each child’s progress, as without making progress there can be no success.

"

Childhood is not a race to see how quickly a child can read, write and count. Childhood is a small window of time to learn and develop at the pace which is right for each individual child.

Student Achievement 2015/16

The International Schools Assessment (ISA) is a standardised test that we trialled with Year 4 during the 2015/16 academic year. We chose the ISA tests because they are designed specifically for students in Grades 3–10 (Years 3-11) in international schools and schools with an international focus, whose language of instruction is English.

Schools use the ISA because:

It tests core skills in mathematical literacy, reading, and writing; It is not specific to a single curriculum;

The test material is eclectic, drawing on many cultural and national sources;

It provides diagnostic information that can be used at the school, class, or individual level;

Performance on the ISA can be related to international benchmarks;

We can evaluate the reliability of our internal assessments and confirm that they are aligned with international expectations of performance;

It includes writing tasks and open-ended questions to better illuminate students’ thinking processes;

Here is a summary of our results compared to schools that took the online tests in February 2016:

Academic Achievements

THE SECONDARY SCHOOL Mick Smith | Secondary Principal As 2016/17 began we were able to add the external examination results to the overall achievements of our students last year. I am extremely proud to report that the IB Diploma results for the Graduating Class of 2016 matched our highest ever average score of 35 points. We have continued to work closely with students to really focus on ensuring that they are taking the specific IB courses that will give them the best possible opportunity to show their potential. These results are partly the fruit of that collaboration along with ensuring students receive quality feedback to move them forward in their learning. The (I) GCSE results also continue to be of a very high standard with an impressive 56% of grades being awarded at A*/A. I would like to congratulate our new Year 12 students on their achievements so far, while challenging them to reach even greater heights in the IB examinations in two years’ time. We have grown accustomed to, and indeed expect, excellent academic results but they are not achieved without absolute commitment from the students and excellence from our teachers. The single most important thing with regards to grades is that each student, whatever their academic ability, strives to reach their goals, to attain what is predicted to be achievable for them. If that happens then average grade scores will take care of themselves. At Bangkok Patana School we recognise and value academic achievement as a key aspect of what we want from our students and how we judge our success as a school. However, it is part of a wider aim to create a culture where holistic and personal development are key, where every student is encouraged to recognise and strive to achieve their own individual potential across a wide range of fields. Many of the most memorable school occasions each year take place outside the classrooms and examination hall; on the sports field, at Model United Nations Conferences, providing service to the wider community, on Duke of Edinburgh's International Award expeditions and in the Arts Centre. If this culture is strong and we ensure that we recognise, value and celebrate student commitment to participation and to reflecting upon how they can learn in all aspects of school life, then we are truly meeting our mission to fulfil student potential and can be considered to be a great school.

INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE Andrew Roff | Senior Studies Assessment and Curriculum Leader/IB Coordinator

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) is a five term course which consists of students taking six subjects, three at Higher Level and three at Standard Level, each of which can score a maximum of seven points. Additional components of the IB programme are Theory of Knowledge and the Extended Essay which can provide up to three ‘bonus’ points to students, giving a theoretical maximum score of 45 points, with 24 points being the minimum pass requirement. Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) must also be completed as it is also a core part of the IBDP which aims to encourage students to continue their learning outside the curriculum through their involvement in the local and wider community.

The Graduating Class of 2016 was a cohort of 124 students, 119 of whom took the full IB Diploma.

99% of IB Diploma students passed, against a World Average (WA) of 80%

The average points score for students who passed the diploma was 35 points (WA=30 points)

A mean grade of 5.5 points was achieved in individual subjects (WA=4.7)

NOTABLE STUDENTS Andrew Roff | Senior Studies Assessment and Curriculum Leader/IB Coordinator

To achieve 40 points or more in the IB Diploma is a significant challenge to even the most able student as they must not only balance the demands of these subjects but also the demands placed upon them by the IBDP core programmes (CAS, the Extended Essay and Theory of Knowledge) as well as the wide range of extra-curricular activities with which they are involved. In May 2016, only 6% of the global cohort of graduating students received 40 points or more, including the following 22 (19%) Bangkok Patana School students:

Using a standardised model allows us to project a likely IB Diploma points score for students based on an adaptive skills test taken at the start of Year 12. Tracking each students’ progress against this projection allows us to identify the students who have made the greatest progress over the course of the two year Senior Studies programme. With this in mind, it is also very important to recognise and celebrate the achievement of the following students who demonstrated excellent application and hard work during the course of their IB Diploma to achieve seven points above expectation.

Bangkok Patana School is proud of its inclusive curriculum, and despite the rigorous demands we do not operate a selective programme. This means that students are given the opportunity, through careful guidance, to study in Senior Studies if they so wish whatever their academic background. This makes our Diploma statistics for this cohort a particularly special achievement of which we are all extremely proud.

(I)GCSE EXAMINATION RESULTS Karen McGuire | (I)GCSE Examination Officer

Each year, thousands of students in the UK and around the world sit (I)GCSE examinations. At Bangkok Patana School our students sit both Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) IGCSEs and Edexcel IGCSEs and GCSEs in a wide variety of subjects. In May/June 2016 a total of 195 students sat these examinations with the majority being from Year 11, but there was also an additional cohort from Year 10 sitting IGCSE Mathematics a year early, along with some students from Years 8 and 9 sitting examinations in their first language. All 23 Year 10 students achieved an A* in IGCSE Mathematics. In addition, 20 Year 11 students sat CIE AS level Maths, 11 of whom achieved a grade A.

MATHEMATICS Scott Tooley | Head of Mathematics Faculty

A large number of Bangkok Patana students took on the challenges set by the UK Mathematics Trust (UKMT) in 2015/16. The three challenges are aimed at 11-18 year olds but we do enter students from Years 5 and 6. A number of students were successful enough to take part in the follow on Olympiad rounds, allowing them to focus more on their solutions rather than the answer.

Our top performing Primary student was Praewa Taylor. Particular credit should go to all our students who were invited to take part in the Olympiad round for their individual competitions. Yuqing Wu scored an incredible 57 out of 60 in the Intermediate Mathematical Olympiad, earning a Distinction, Book Prize and a Medal.

2015/16 Results: 191 students took part in the Junior Challenge, 187 in the Intermediate and 118 in the Senior competition.

The students were invited to attend the final day of competition focussing on Number Theory. Benjada came in second and Yuqing, managed to win the whole event which is incredible considering she was two school years younger than the other competitors.

INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC David Larking | Student Progress Leader Co-ordinator of Instrumental Music

The Instrumental Music Department currently provides music tuition to over 550 students at Bangkok Patana School. Our 20 instructors provide tuition on a diverse group of instruments to students across the school. Bangkok Patana students participate in external music examinations – these examinations are an important way for our students to chart success.

SPORTS Cindy Adair | Assistant Principal Extra-curricular Activities and sports

Bangkok Patana School has a proud sporting tradition and participates strongly in several athletic conferences – BISAC, SEASAC and FOBISIA. 2015/16 was no exception with over 800 students participating in around 80 teams playing more than 400 fixtures across Thailand and South East Asia. This programme is supported by over 50 fantastic coaches.

GYMNASTICS

At their three major competitions alone – FOBISIA, SEASAC and BISAC – the gymnastics team took 221 individual and team podium places with 74 of these being gold. Highlights in 2015/16: • The Boys’ Level 3 team were undefeated across EVERY competition they entered, finishing their BISAC competition more than 10 points above the 2nd placed team. • The Girls’ Level 2 Junior team developed and grew to take two team golds, and then two golds and two silvers in the individual all- around at their BISAC competition. • Rebecca Russo (Level 6) took 4th, 3rd and two well-deserved 2nd places in the all-around competitions that she has attended since she joined Bangkok Patana School in January 2016.

SWIMMING

The 2015/16 season was highly successful for the TigerSharks with over 60 school records broken, personal best times set by the students over the year, and podium success at the Thai Nationals. Ton Kiangsiri competed for Thailand at the South East Age Groups Swim meet in Term 1. Away from Bangkok the 53 strong swim team won the FOBISIA Top Team award as well as some age group titles. The SEASAC team finished a very credible 3rd placed overall team. Overall the TigerShark Boys placed 2nd and Girls 3rd whilst the 13 – 14-year age group Boys were crowned SEASAC Age Champions. Chloe Burkill swam well to achieve a podium finish at the Vietnam Nationals in the 100m Backstroke event. At the Dragons Den Singapore meet, the team of 10 produced many podium finishes in their events. Domestically we were top team at the ISB SwimFest in November and won our own Feeding Frenzy International meet in Term 1. TigerSharks were crowned both BISAC Junior and Senior Champions which gave Bangkok Patana the overall BISAC Champion title. A record 17 swimmers competed at the Thai Nationals and 2 Silvers and 1 bronze medal were won by Bangkok Patana athletes and a Coach! All of the TigerSharks from Year 1 upwards have had internal meets to improve their performances and gain internal recognition and personal achievement from their efforts in the pool. Highlights: • Ton Kiangsiri and Klang Jatusripitak setting new SEASAC Records in their age group in the Breaststroke events • Age 13-14 Boys’ SEASAC Champions • Junior BISAC Champions – for the first time since 2009 • Ton Kiangsiri won a Silver medal at Thai Nationals in the 50m Breaststroke. Bangkok Patana Swimmers also won Girls’ age 11-12 4 x 200m Free Relay Silver medal whilst Coach Bank won a Bronze medal in her 50m Breaststroke open age group.

TENNIS

The 2015/16 season saw the Varsity Girls’ Tennis team win a record breaking 6th straight SEASAC title whilst the Boys’ narrowly lost in the final. On the domestic tournament scene, we had our best overall results for a few years with the Varsity Boys and Girls and the Under 15 Boys and Girls all winning their BISAC events whilst both the Under 13 teams finished as runners up. FOBISIA this year was held in Brunei and 24 players represented Bangkok Patana in the individual singles events. Results all round were good with the highlights being Pawinee (Balloon) Ruamrak winning the Under 13 Girls’ event beating team mate Clara Boucher in the final and Brett Kichodhan, Celine (Gem) Ninsuvannakul and Jonah Tuggener all reaching the final of their events. Other season highlights were: • Balloon winning the Under 13, Under 15 and Under 19 individual BISAC singles events •

Leo Vithoontien beating Donald Zhou in the final of the Under 19 BISAC singles

Twenty-one mini tennis players representing the school in the Harrow Invitational with Akkharat (Andrew) Watcharananan winning the overall title

• The Under 11 Boys winning the first BISAC Invitational team event

EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES Cindy Adair | Assistant Principal Extra-curricular Activities and sports

Extra-curricular activities or “ECAs” as they are known at Bangkok Patana School, provide opportunities for students to broaden their horizons outside the classroom. Participation in the programme can help students make new friends, learn new skills, contribute to their community, keep fit or simply socialise and have fun. In 2015/16 we offered an average of 400 ECAs a week – across a large and diverse range of categories.

Here are some of the highlights: A range of Community Action Teams that provide students with a chance to become true global citizens and contribute and engage with the local community.

A comprehensive competitive sports programme for those who would like to compete in team and individual sports.

A diverse range of academic ECAs to extend beyond the information covered in the curriculum or boost interest and performance. These ECAs include Nutty Scientists, selective maths, robotics, coding and creative writing.

A range of non-competitive recreational sports for fun and fitness including horseriding, sailing, yoga, martial arts and rock climbing.

Creative ECAs to encourage students to explore the arts through the mediums of painting, drawing, photography and sculpture.

One of our most popular ECAs is the Duke of Edinburgh's International Award with 200+ students in Years 9 to 13 working towards achieving their Bronze, Silver and Gold awards and undertaking adventurous journeys both here in Thailand and abroad.

BRONZE

Kirsten Bennett | Duke of Edinburgh's International Award Coordinator

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award was first introduced here at Bangkok Patana School in the year 2000 and students have now engaged in the programme across 15 successful years. The Award is a personal development programme for young people aged 14 – 25 and is made up of four sections: Adventurous Journey, Physical Recreation, Skills and Service. In each level young people volunteer their time and set themselves a personal challenge. There are three levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold. Students start the Bronze Award in Year 10, Silver in Year 11 and work towards the Gold in Years 12 and 13. The Award teaches students at Bangkok Patana to become independent learners, builds their confidence, challenges them to think for themselves and learn how to be self-sufficient. They work as an individual and as part of a team, and learn what role they play, and how to evaluate and learn from their experiences. It is a valuable opportunity and a great enhancement to their everyday studies. The Adventurous Journey is probably the most memorable section where students take part in an overnight trekking expedition.

"

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award has inspired the most formative moments in my secondary school career. I’ve learnt an uncountable number of lessons, had the most incredible experiences and formed the strongest friendships, all of which I’ll cherish for the rest of my life. There are very few events in one’s life that truly affect one’s character, personality and way of thinking. The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award experience is definitely one of those.

COMMUNITY ACTION Tania Leyland | Secondary Youth and Community Coordinator, Caroline Ferguson | Secondary CAS Coordinator and Clare Tomlinson | Primary CAT Coordinator

The Community Action Teams (CATs) and Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) groups in Secondary School continued to grow this year with many of them focusing on sustainable action projects that will benefit the wider community in the long term. The student’s efforts are remarkable and their commitment is unwavering, despite ever increasing academic pressures as they move through Secondary School. Our CAS students continued to make a real difference in the local community through their weekly direct action service projects. Some examples this year included: for teaching Art to novice monks at Pong Ploy Wat school; running swimming lessons for children from a centre for impoverished families run by the Foundation for Rehabilitation and Development of Children and Families (FORDEC); and organising play activities for visiting children from a local day-care centre.

Notable achievements of the year include: We started the year with the CAS / CAT Fair. The bar was raised with professional looking stalls and engaging conversations throughout the exhibition, enabling students from Key Stage 3 and 4 and the wider community to investigate and learn about projects that sparked their interest. Patana Animal Welfare Society donated funds to Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand (WFFT) to build five large enclosures, purposely built as multispecies enclosures so that they are able to house many different animals in the open fields. WFFT are working on these fields in the hope that they will be able to rescue eight tigers from The Netherlands that have been retired from the humiliating circus industry after the use of wild animals in circuses became illegal in many European countries, including Holland. SMILE took a trip to Nong Khai province to see first-hand how donations are being used to help children born with a cleft lip and/or a cleft palate. They had an amazing time interacting with the children as well as learning about the surgeries and witnessing the life-changing results. This was an experience that will stay with them for a lifetime.

Patana Marine Conservation Group saw some great results with their reef creation project and are pleased to report that a wide variety of corals are flourishing on the new man-made reef structures. The Rowathon organised by a group of CAS students at Christmas, raised funds to buy warm winter clothes for refugee families in Europe. The Christmas Food Donation project in which students collected and delivered food boxes to over 200 families in need in the local community. Many other CAT and CAS members gave up their time after school and at weekends to enrich the lives of some of the poorest members of our wider community. Playing games, initiating art and music projects or simply buying ice creams. The students do not yet realise the lasting positive impact that their interactions will have on the lives of others. For some of our student groups, their main objective is to raise awareness of social injustice and once again they have managed to do this in a range of innovative ways from the STOP fashion show to raise awareness of the global human trafficking problem, to Spectrum working with year leaders on the inclusion of LGBT issues in the school’s tutorial program

In Primary, Tiger Spirit Day was a roaring success and gave students the opportunity to learn and support different Year groups. Smile Day had everyone in stitches as students and teachers shared their jokes whilst the school was transformed into a sea of colour and smiles with the theme ‘Brightest is Best’. Primary Busking Day allowed the students to showcase their talents culminating in a dynamic stage show! These major whole-school fundraisers collectively raised an amazing 300,000 baht. These funds supported various projects in Thailand such as a children’s home in Chiang Mai and Operation Smile. Other funds supported neighbouring countries such as resourcing a library in Tibet and supporting families and children in Mindoro, Philippines after tropical cyclone Melor/Nona hit in December 2015. We continue to support the children of Zanskar through a Winter School programme as well as the Chin State Children’s Welfare Fund, based in Myanmar. Alongside whole school events, individual Year groups have continued to organise a whole range of exciting fund-raising activities, from bring and buy sales, various dress up days, sponsored spellathons and timetableathons and temple fairs to support their own Thailand-based children’s charities. The donations supported organisations in buying food and other consumables, providing medication, educational projects, instruments, equipment and rebuilding schools and homes. In addition to this, all Year groups contributed over the festive period either by donating and selling their own toys, carefully choosing a gift for a child of a specific age and gender or preparing a shoe box with a variety of gifts, consumables and essentials. This gave students the opportunity to give or prepare gifts with a purpose.

MODEL UNITED NATIONS Michael Brooks | MUN Advisor

The Model United Nations (MUN) is a hugely popular activity at Bangkok Patana School attracting 80 students from the Secondary School. Students hone their debating skills in a variety of committees and matters of world importance are discussed in a challenging but enjoyable atmosphere. In addition to becoming highly proficient in public speaking, delegates enjoy the wonderful camaraderie that comes from working with fellow students from different Year groups and from other international schools in Thailand and across South East Asia. MUN Secretary Generals: Sebastian Walter Young, Joshua Mo Parliamentarians: Rachel Ho, Abu Akram Labeeb Hussain
