As Sixth Form students across the world prepare to hear their A-level results, we look at 5 of the key factors to A-level and university entrance success at Rugby School Thailand.

1. Academic Support From Tutors Ensures Student Learning Outcomes

Our Sixth Form students benefit from a tutor system that provides 1-to-1 weekly support. This gives each Sixth Form student access to a mentor who can help keep their academic work on track, as well as looking after them on a pastoral level. The tutor-student relationships here are a very valuable aspect of the Sixth Form experience.

2. Small Class Sizes Promote Engagement and Participation

One of Rugby School Thailand’s key differentiators is our small class sizes. This is true of all year groups, but particularly notable in Sixth Form, where the student experience is elevated by plenty of dedicated time with their teachers as they gain deeper subject knowledge.

3. Students Start Off Strong With A-Level Preparation Courses

Our Sixth Form students are offered complimentary courses to support their experience and give them strong foundations for each milestone ahead. Before starting in Sixth Form we offer an ‘A-level Preparation Course’ that helps students understand the best choices for them, with university and careers as a consideration.

4. University Preparation Course Gets Students Ready For What Comes Next

Once in the Sixth Form, we offer a much-lauded ‘University Preparation Course’ which has been devised in partnership with Nottingham University, Malaysia. The course offers everything from practical life skills, such as cooking and budgeting, to academic support in the way of research and reference tools.

5. Wholistic Approach to Education Create Well-Rounded Citizens

We stand out because we offer a diversity of experience, it is not just about academic excellence. Our school mantra—the whole person, the whole point—serves to develop well-rounded individuals who thrive in life beyond school. This comes through bespoke support throughout Sixth Form, but also through the huge variety of additional interests that are developed through the Community Action Programme (which includes charity work, service, and Duke of Edinburgh), daily sport and co-curricular activities, boarding opportunities, and adventurous residentials, such as our recent trip to Borneo. RST students leave with a strong sense of community, good core values, and a worldly outlook.
