Burapa English Programme School (B.E.S.T.) aims to educate its students to be bilingual in English and Thai and to understand and appreciate the cultures behind these languages. We endeavour to teach our students the best aspects of both Asian and Western cultures, and to encourage them to be confident in their interactions with the world.

In addition to this, we strive to play a leading role in imparting knowledge and nurturing good citizens, and to provide our students with a healthy and balanced understanding of the skills they will need to lead a successful and fulfilling life.

At the Early Years Foundation Stage (Kindergarten, age 2-5) we prepare our students for the National Curriculum beginning in Key Stage One at age 5-6. Our students study and rest in modern, air-conditioned classrooms and we aim to prepare them in the areas of:
