The school follows the National Curriculum of England and offers kindergarten to secondary levels. Most of the teaching staff are qualified from the UK, including specialist teachers in performing arts. The school also has teachers from the USA and Canada who have experience of teaching the National Curriculum of England, with at least fourteen educators from native English speaking countries.
The student population, on the other hand, is composed of school goers from all over the world, includind the neighbouring countries in the region. Some of the territories besides Thailand are Malaysia, Indonesia, Myanmar, Vietnam, Brazil, China, Germany, and the West Indies.
The Bloomsbury International School Hatyai focuses on the best practices in international education and fosters academic achievement, learning essential life skills and qualities necessary for global citizenship in the 21st century. The school promotes intercultural understanding, empathy, communication and respect which helps students gain a cultural and national identity.
The school follows a British derived curriculum which is ideal for international students. However, it modifies the British derived curriculum to match the local cultural aspects. Bloomsbury is an approved Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) school and assessment centre, maintaining the high academic standards that the 800-year-old CIE education model expects, which in itself is adapted from the National Curriculum of England.
This school also offers the sixth form to students. The sixth form students are treated as young adults rather than conventional school pupils. They have various freedom and rights which are not available to students of other standards. The school offers a number of extra-curricular activities to students for their holistic development.
There are also a number of complimentary extra curricular activities or ECAs, as well as being able to take part in a variety of local cultural events. Thai culture is heavily focused on at this school, emphasising the respect and understanding of Thai culture via activities and lessons, in addition to the cultural events such as Loy Krathong.
