Harrow Bangkok has a proud and longstanding history of supporting Thai students through their military training.
Students in Years 10-13 are guided and coached through the process by our experienced Thai Principal. Harrow Bangkok’s Thai Principal, Khun Khanitha Prawichen, was appointed as Harrow Bangkok’s Special Advisor for the military training of students in 2011. In 2013 Khun Khanitha received an award for being an outstanding military training advisor from the Territorial Defense School. Harrow Bangkok has also been selected as an outstanding military training school for students over several years. These awards were presented by the commander of the Army Reserve Affair Centre.
Due to the integrated nature of the programme, students are able to continue their studies uninterrupted, managing their co-curricular and academic commitments around the military training requirements. Many students use the experiences gained in military training in their university applications and refer to them in university interviews.
Leadership is at the heart of the Harrow Bangkok ethos and alongside team building, self-awareness, self-control and patriotism, forms a key part of the military training experience.
Students who graduate from the three years of military training will be exempted from compulsory national conscription and will gain appointment as a sergeant in the Army Reserve Affairs Centre.
