Shrewsbury International School Bangkok Riverside has announced the opening of their new senior school. The culmination of “Project 2021” dramatically increases the provision for science, mathematics, computing, innovation, robotics, sixth-form, higher education counselling, dining and sport at the leading independent international school.
Nestled on the banks of the famed Chao Phraya River, the sleek Sir David Lees Innovation Centre, incorporating the Stephen Holroyd Sixth Form Commons and the world-class Sports Performance Complex, will ensure the school and its community continue to thrive well into the future.
Named after the chairman of the board of governors and UK businessman, Sir David Lees, the Innovation Centre gives Shrewsbury students and the school’s teaching staff plenty of new creative spaces and facilities to enable them to extend themselves fully.
Sixteen new mathematics classrooms now sit alongside 18 university-standard laboratories — a dramatic boost to a faculty that regularly sends students to premier medical schools in Thailand and abroad.
Supported by the Sophonpanich family and governance linked to Shrewsbury School in the UK, this new development delivers new and exciting opportunities for aspirational parents, staff and students.
Sport at Shrewsbury International School Bangkok is also being given an enormous boost, with the completion of an additional sports hall complete with a strength and conditioning zone.
Principal Chris Seal said: “Shrewsbury Riverside is built on aspiration. The Sophonpanich family and the governing body showed foresight and ambition in launching this project before my appointment. I have thoroughly enjoyed bringing it to fruition and look forward to seeing the impact of these amazing spaces on our young people and their learning.”
