Our Story and Ethos
Founded in 2018, Meritton British International School is a small, family-based international school. English is the main language of instruction, while Thai and, for older children, Mandarin, are also taught.
Small-sized classes and a purpose-built campus provide a safe and intimate environment which encourages strong student-teacher relationships and meaningful family involvement. The campus includes a swimming pool, grass sports field, covered hard court and lots of green areas designated as playgrounds, outdoor climbing and vegetable gardens. Our student population includes over 10 different nationalities.
Located on the doorstep of the famous old city of Chiang Mai and within minutes of the beautiful nature afforded by the surrounding forests and mountains, the school aims to provide a program of learning which puts values at the heart of education. Meritton’s Values-based Education program engages students, teachers and parents in regular learning activities, from values lessons and assemblies to daily mindfulness, life skills projects and parent workshops.
With the rigorous English National and Cambridge International programmes as core curriculums, students are provided with a well-rounded learning experience that fully meets their social, emotional, physical and intellectual needs. Our enquiry-based learning approach further develops reflection and critical thinking skills.
Meritton’s classroom teachers are fully qualified, experienced and native speakers of English. The majority of our teachers are British, while others currently come from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa and the United States.
