Inspiring a love of learning

 

HeadStart International School, Phuket

Our school is a unique educational institution that provides well-rounded learning from Preschool, through to Secondary Level.  Our mission is to educate our students by cultivating analytical thinking; promoting independence and self-confidence; instilling empathy and respect for others and inspiring a lifelong love of learning. This, we believe, provides an indispensable foundation for life.
Employing qualified and experienced teachers, we are dedicated to providing students with a comprehensive and well-rounded education.

Adhering to the belief that education is a lifelong process and that good habits formed from an early age are an invaluable asset to an enjoyable and productive life.
Our curriculum is based on the National Curriculum of England and Wales. This, we believe encourages stimulated, inquisitive thinking in our pupils, as well encouraging them to exceed traditional boundaries. HeadStart uses balanced and challenging educational programmes that are formulated to encompass this philosophy.

HeadStart welcomes students from every nationality. We passionately believe that many invaluable lessons and social skills can be learned through early exposure to differing cultures.
HeadStart also encourages parents to participate in their children’s learning by following up on materials covered in class.
