Education is one of the rarest and most vital gifts a parent can give their child. At Windfield International School we see the opportunity to educate your children is a precious privilege that brings with it a huge responsibility. Our goal is to help those in our care to become compassionate, creative and responsible leaders for today and tomorrow.
We will take this opportunity and responsibility extremely seriously. We aim to recognise the needs of your child and to act upon them. Our school will be a safe and warm environment with the highest of expectations for the students, the teachers and the parents.
The world we live in is fast-changing and dynamic, the need to prepare those in our care is critical to success. At WIS we recognise the need for a progressive, aware and holistic education that is outstanding. This education needs to be based on sound research and excellent practice.
A school should allow students to feel safe, comfortable and happy, a place of joy. We see it as our role to develop the children’s confidence and self-esteem in a compassionate and caring manner. Our students will become open-minded and questioning with the capacity to inquire into their world and make a positive contribution to our local and global community.
Windfield International School is a new school and this allows us to decide what our identity will be, we will all have a role to play in defining the culture of the school and how it will be valued. We will develop our traditions and values that will be in place for generations to come.

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 a project that takes into account the development of the child. From an academic point of view offering the student a high quality education in both the French and British curriculum, but also from an holistic point of view by taking into consideration sound moral values, constant personalised attention, and the development the student’s extra-curricular talents (sports, music, dance, art, service to the community, etc), thus contributing to the education of students who will become responsible and committed world citizens.
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, preparing them for the future and instilling in them a life-long desire for educational excellence and continual improvement, in a secure and peaceful setting.
From our Director
"Our students, regardless of age, are the heart of the school and their well-being, progress and personal development are our constant concern, not only through quality education and teaching of academic content, but also through the transmission of strong values that will make them fulfilled citizens of the world, ready to face the challenges that will come their way. "
