Our Mission

What We Stand For

Windfield International School provides high quality
English education for selected and motivated students, who are keen to be involved in building their future with solid educational and moral foundations.

Our team of teachers, chosen with great care, is made up of educational professionals who support them towards success and excellence and who prepare them as best as possible for the world that awaits them and in which they will be the key actors.

Teaching the Professionals of tomorrow

Windfield International School was founded as a result of collaboration between M. Stéphane Salaun, Director of the French School of Koh Samui and Sompob and Samat Yongsiri, a family of entrepreneurs and business people from Bangkok.

The Yongsiri family are passionate about education and are keen to invest in an educational project that takes into account the development of the child, not only from an academic point of view but also from an holistic point of view.

This means taking into consideration sound moral values and the development of the student's extra-curricular talents such as sports, music, dance, art and service to the community.

Offering the student a high quality education through the rigorous French and British curricula coupled with 21st century skills, work habits, and character traits enables them to become responsible and committed world citizens.

The partnership with the Yongsiri family is also a guarantee of the financial stability of our school, which is essential for the implementation of a serious long-term project.

The idea of bringing together a French and a British school on the same campus, each with their own program, will allow for constant linguistic exchanges between students, who will also share certain courses, and is a step towards opening them up to the world. 

Instilling in them a life-long desire for educational excellence and continual improvement in a secure and peaceful setting will set them up to recreate the same in their lives and for their futures.
