Primary English Program
The Primary Program (Prathom) consists of grades 1-6. This program forms the basis
Secondary English Program
The Secondary Program operates differently from the Primary program. Secondary Program students come from a wide educational background including English Programmes, EIP and Thai Regular Programmes. This presents challenges, opportunities, creative options and active teaching styles for educators with the ability to get involved. The ideal candidate for the Secondary Program should be dedicated to improving students of all levels as well as the existing program, be adaptable and also be pro-active with curriculum changes. They should also have experience or possess TEFL training as well as a suitable background for the subjects they will teach. “Mathayom” or secondary classes are capped at 30 students per class, with several grade levels having more than one class. The periods are in 50 minute blocks with breaks throughout the day. All NES teachers will have a “Homeroom” they will “help look after” with their Thai homeroom teacher counterpart. NES teachers are subject teachers, moving from class to class throughout the day teaching their respective subjects. Graduates in Math and Science fields are wanted for the upper secondary, but most importantly the candidates need to be open minded and ready to teach basic English.

Srithammarat Suksa school is a private Christian school in Nakon Si Thammarat, Thailand.
Srithammaratsuksa is a well-established school with over 5000 students K-12. We are one of the largest English Programs in Southern Thailand. The English Program is now in its 13th year, and continuing to grow and improve in size, quality and reputation. We currently have a foreign staff around 45 from the US, Canada, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and the UK. Srithammarat Suksa has all classes under 30 students (many around 15), a friendly and supportive environment and beautiful tree-lined campus adjacent to a large city park. See more in the about us section of the webpage.
Our city, Nakon Si Thammarat, is an ancient trading capital with many modern/western conveniences: Internet, satellite TV, pizza, fast food, malls, super stores… you name it. Renting a house can be done for about 10-15% of monthly salary, leaving plenty to experience local culture in our medium-sized, NON-touristic Thai city. Beaches, mountains, caves and waterfalls are within a short drive, and the famous tourist meccas of Ko Samui, Ko Pa Ngan, Krabi and Phuket are a short drive away. However the town still has the “small town vibe” and is very much “real Thailand”. For more information on Nakon Si Thammarat, please see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
