To commence August 2025

An outstanding opportunity to lead a thriving, 500 strong day and boarding international school for boys and girls aged 2-18 through its third decade, and build upon a foundation of success under ten years of the current Headmaster’s leadership.

Four hundred and fifty years after Bromsgrove UK came into being, Bromsgrove International School Thailand (BIST) was founded in 2002.  The Ramkhamheang Early Years campus serves children aged 2 to 7, while the Primary and Secondary campus stands in Windsor Park Golf Club. In 2008, the first boarding house was completed, and the first cohort of students sat the IGCSE examinations. Following sustained growth in boarding numbers, a second boarding house opened in February 2011.

BIST now has students from over 27 nations and 95% fully qualified British teachers. Students’ learning is based upon the English National Curriculum leading to IGCSE and A level (with BTEC qualifications also offered) in the Secondary school.  Great store is set by the quality of pastoral care, and the co-curricular offer as described in the BIST Learner profile; Music, the Arts and Sport thrive in excellent facilities. Graduates go on to study in the UK, Europe, USA, Hong Kong and other ASEAN countries.

BIST has long been a member of the Council of International Schools (CIS), and is a member of other organisations including the Federation of British International Schools in Asia (FOBISIA) and Boarding Schools’ Association (BSA). Relations with Bromsgrove UK are deep, strong, and manifest in both formal and informal structures and arrangements.

The new Head will be kind, compassionate and inspiring, with heightened cultural sensitivity and the ability to offer strong, unifying, visionary leadership while being respectful of Thai culture and all that the School has achieved. BIST has no intentions of becoming a large school, but some further growth will be possible. Boarding experience is not essential, but the willingness to learn rapidly is.

This role will commence in August 2025, and the position comes with an accommodation allowance and a competitive remuneration package.
