British International School, Phuket

British International School, Phuket

The British International School Phuket is a caring school. The staff turnover each year is low (typically around 10%) and the average length of stay exceeds six years. This is not because of the beaches and sunshine, although, to be perfectly honest, this does no harm to our recruitment. Many teachers have children at the school. The balance of male to female teacher is almost exactly even throughout the school, including Early Years, and although there is a very healthy age spread from the aged (me) to those who are in their first few years of teaching, it is an exceptionally experienced staff overall. The school has outstanding facilities, and places a great emphasis upon a healthy lifestyle and caring for others. It is a happy place, and we are looking for teachers who will contribute positively, and enhance our culture.



Background checks are conducted on all successful applicants.
