In what has been a remarkable two year period in everybody’s lives our class of 2021 have truly set the bar high in terms of their future study aspirations. Whilst the world, Thailand, Phuket and therefore the school too has been challenged like at no other time before by the pandemic, these tenacious and resilient young people have managed to stay the course and prepare for their exams and submit an incredible number (87 to be exact) university applications with 12 still pending as we wait for the application windows to open in July 2021 in Australia, Korea, Germany, Luxembourg, Hungary, Belgium and Thailand.

We also have a number of students who have chosen to take a gap year because of COVID 19 and they too have shown thought and maturity in making this decision; they too have been busy planning the pathways they intend to follow which include taking up internships, joining the military and plans to work for a year before returning to full time academia. We are very proud of our graduates this year. They have managed adversity with grace and have come through this year with very promising plans for their future.
