The internationally recognised exams are widely regarded as the first steps in a suite of exams that students take to enter international universities.

The awards were given out at the English Programme Welcome Day, where parents were invited into the school to find out more about the programme and meet the teachers.

Stephen Brady, head of English Programme at Darasamuth Phuket School said, “The results for this year are better than ever, with an average score of 87 per cent and 11 students achieving a score of 100 per cent.

“In the exams, students must show proficiency in reading and writing, listening and speaking. We are very proud of all of our students from English Programme and IEP as they all worked hard and proved that they are making huge improvements in their English skills,” said Mr Brady.

It was a well-attended event and Sister Srivieng talked a lot about Thailand needing to be more competitive as the AEC approaches. She said, “As a school, we are making sure our students have the skills to go on to compete in a new community where understanding other languages is essential. That is why we make sure our students not only do well in Thai, but also in English and Chinese".

Parents met their children's teachers after the welcome meeting and presentation of certificates. The teachers this year come from a range of countries, including the UK, New Zealand, USA and South Africa.
