Welcome to our new Director of Studies

Harrow Bangkok is delighted to welcome our new Director of Studies, Rob Paler.

A History graduate with an MA in Ottoman History and Turkish Politics, Rob’s a highly experienced teacher who’s had a variety of roles including Head of History, Politics and Director of IB (International Baccalaureate). He comes to Harrow Bangkok from one of the UK’s leading independent boarding schools, Charterhouse.

‘A Director of Studies works with his team to develop the academic strategy of the school which can include the subjects we teach and how they are delivered. The team is made up of the Heads of Faculty, examinations and the library. They all provide creative ideas about how the school can support the way our students learn.’

I chose Harrow Bangkok since in the last twenty years it’s developed an excellent reputation that extends far beyond Asia and I wanted to contribute to its next stage of development. Since arriving I’ve found that, whilst it is a busy school, staff still find time to offer newcomers the warmest of welcomes.’
