Our New Principal
 
Our new Principal, Mr David Cox, was born and raised in Manchester in the North of England. He graduated from Manchester University in 1974. He worked in schools and colleges in UK before moving overseas in 1987. He has taught in international schools in Singapore, UK, Brunei and Ethiopia before his move to Thailand. He has been a Principal and Director for 8 years and has spent 14 years of his career in South East Asia.

As many international students have parents whose work takes them to different countries, Mr David believes that in order to achieve continuity and progression, schools should provide an international curriculum that allows students to move from one school to another with the minimum of disruption. However, a good international school also welcomes children with widely differing educational experiences, so teachers must be skilled professionals who can vary learning strategies according to individual needs and interests. Most importantly, Mr David works to create a school ethos where students feel self confident and secure in a community that welcomes all young people regardless of race, nationality or culture. Only then can all our children achieve their full potential.

On a personal level, apart from a life long interest in education, Mr David loves travel and enjoys trekking and climbing, ornithology and photography. He is very happy to be returning to a region which offers so many opportunities for outdoor pursuits and to a country with such friendly and hospitable people, and such wonderful food.
