Individual and competitive sports are part of what makes the Green Valley community so supportive and loyal.

Students are fortunate enough to play golf, take part in equestrian activities, and have large sporting fields most schools could only wish for. Our 25m 8 lane competitive swimming pool has hosted teams from FOBISIA (The Federation of British International Schools in Asia), our extensive football fields are used weekly by the St. Andrews Panthers Football team for local and international tournaments, and our students can play basketball on covered outdoor courts.
Our students get to take part in FOBISIA competitions and programmes across Thailand and Asia. The overall aim of the Federation is to promote excellence in good British-style education in our schools, and to provide opportunities for inter-school competitions and enrichment programmes.
