Bromsgrove International School, Thailand, is a well-established co-educational boarding and day school for over 450 students from ages 2 to 18. The school follows the English National Curriculum, adapted for our international context, from EYFS through to IGCSE and A-Levels. We are affiliated to Bromsgrove School, one of the UK’s most prestigious independent boarding and day schools, steeped in over 450 years of history. We aim to utilize the very best aspects of that educational heritage whilst also fostering in our students a love of independent learning and shaping them to become truly global citizens. The school is a fully accredited member of the Council of International Schools (CIS) and is also a full member of the Federation of British International Schools in Asia (FOBISIA). The school is spread across two campuses: the Early Years Campus (Pre-Nursery to Year 2) and Windsor Park Campus (Year 3 to Year 13). The main Windsor Park campus is located on the idyllic Windsor Park Golf Course on the outskirts of Bangkok, within easy reach of Suvarnabhumi International Airport and is approximately 50 minutes away from the Sukhumvit downtown Bangkok.
The school is entering an exciting phase of development and growth, including our boarding provision across the school, with a third boarding house planned for 2016.
We are seeking an individual experienced in pastoral care to work alongside Head of the Boarding House to continue to develop and expand our boarding provision for our Year 3 – Year 13 pupils.

In addition to the responsibility of assisting in the running of the Boarding House an additional area of responsibility within boarding will be assigned depending on the skills and interests of the successful candidate (for example additional English support, boarding accounts or organizing rotas). The successful candidate will • Have the ability to deliver excellent levels of pastoral care
