Official description

Established on the 24th May 1926, Amnuay Silpa School was founded by the grandfather of the current CEO, Khun Petchuda. With over 90 years of incredible history that includes educating six former Prime Ministers and over 80,000 Alumni.

Over the decades, ANS has continued to transform its approach according to the changing needs of society.  In 2009 the school launched the Thinking School Approach in collaboration with King’s School, New Zealand.  The emphasis was on moving away from a content-based, factual curriculum geared towards the passing of examinations, to a more transferable skills-based curriculum.  Lessons were designed to maximise higher-order thinking opportunities enabling students to better understand the thinking process and to develop greater independence.  Extensive teacher training took place over the years that followed to enable a very consistent, embedded programme to be implemented from Nursery to Year 13.

In 2013 ANS was accredited by Exeter University as the first and only Thinking School in Asia and in 2017 the school was awarded Advanced Status by the Department of Cognitive Education at Exeter University.
