Students at Green Valley have numerous opportunities to excel and succeed in academic and non-academic activities. We believe in the importance of achievement and encourage for all of our students to be the best they can be.
Excellent exam results at IGCSE level
At St. Andrews, we consistently achieve our objective to substantially exceed international standards. Our IGCSE results are more than 20% above UK averages, with 88% of our students achieving grades of A* - C, 39% of these being grades of A* and A. These results far exceed the UK National average of 67% for A* - C and the average scores of other international schools in the region.
Impressive IB Diploma Results
At St Andrews we consistently achieve outstanding IB results with 100% pass rate for the IB Diploma and for the past 4 years our average IB Diploma Score has been 35 points. In 2016 in our IB Diploma Programme, 100% of our students were awarded their Diploma, achieving an average score of 38.6, eight and a half points higher than the world average of 30.1 points. 40% of the graduating students were awarded a prestigious IB Bilingual Diploma, and one student achieved the maximum score of 45 points (one of only 147 in the world). She is now studying Law at Kings University in London.
In 2017 and 2018 we continued our successful track record with 100% pass rate for the IB Diploma and high average IB scores. Three students achieved over 40 points and gained prestigious places at Universities around the world including Imperial College London and Melbourne University.
Annual One Day, One Goal charity football tournament
The One Day, One Goal charity event has been a huge success since its inception in 2012. Not only do our sports teams dominate these competitions, but we raise over 100,00THB each year for a range of charities including: The Shelter, Take Care Kids and Fountain of Life. These are all really worthy causes and the money raised will help them immensely. More recently we have also seen the children from the charities we support taking part in the events and entering football teams, coached by our staff and students - a terrific showcase for St Andrews and its strength of community.
Consistently high performers at the FOBISIA Games
St. Andrews has an excellent track record when it come to the FOBISIA Games. Competition takes place according to age groups (Primary, Under 13 & Under 15) and the games take place in the central hub at Thanyapura Sports Centre in Phuket. We are continually impressed with the dedication and spirit that our athletes show at these events and so proud to see them up on the podiums every year in all events, often walking away with the overall trophies in each discipline.
High attendance at Model United Nations (MUN) conferences
The Model United Nations (MUN) conferences are a terrific experience for our students. They spend weeks carefully researching, writing positions papers and preparing resolutions where they then join their respective committees to debate important, current global issues such as the militarisation of space, international drug trafficking and the development and promotion of renewable energies. The aim is to have your countries' resolution successfully passed. The delegates enjoy the chance to develop and sharpen their negotiation skills with hundreds of other students from a range of international schools both in Thailand and across Asia. More recently one our students attended the THAIMUN and was awarded a great accolade of being the best chairperson (from a total of 35 chairs). This is certainly a great reflection on skills and expertise our students bring to these events and they have the opportunity to practise these over a number of MUN conferences throughout their time at St Andrews.
Science Fair hosted by Green Valley on the Eastern Seaboard
Students from a number of international schools, both locally and from Bangkok, converge at Green Valley every year to battle it out for the fantastic prizes and the glory of winning the area’s largest academic competition.
Finalists in the Tournament of Minds competitions
Each year Green Valley successfully competes in the tournament of Minds competition against top international schools in the region, and is often placed in the top two for each category, whether it is Maths and Engineering or Language and Literature. Since embarking on these competitions, groups of students from St Andrews have won their categories three times and had the chance to attend the finals in Sydney in Australia. This year is no exception, with our Secondary team winning the Science and Engineering category and they will be heading down under to Sydney in October.
