The History of SCL International School:

Established in 2004, Samui Centre of Learning (former title) began its life in a small Thai wooden house with just two students enrolled. The vision of its founders was to provide an environment where children would feel safe, valued and happy; the best environment for learning. Through a steady expansion plan, the centre has now blossomed into a school that can cater for up to 200 children, in a new and modern purpose built premises.
In 2009 the school, which had previously only enrolled children of nursery and primary age, took the move into secondary education. In March 2010, the school became an accredited Cambridge International Examinations centre and accredited to use the Cambridge Primary Years and Lower Secondary Programs.
On the 19th March 2012, the school was granted International School Status by the Thailand Ministry of Education, only the second school in the South East of Thailand to receive this accolade.
Today, SCL International School continues to grow from strength to strength, yet despite this growth, has maintained its family atmosphere. With continued emphasis on individual learning, holistic teaching methods and a fully supported EAL department, the school really is living up to its motto; ‘Educating the mind, Nurturing the Soul’.


“I absolutely love how SCL has developed over the years. We have held fast to the original vision; to provide a safe and nurturing environment where children are free to express themselves, whilst receiving a high quality education. The children are exactly where they should be; at the centre of all our efforts. All the staff members we have here at SCL are amazing and I am absolutely confident in saying each and every one of them genuinely loves what they do and the children. As the director of SCL I couldn’t feel happier that the vision we had all those years ago has become a reality. As a parent with her children in SCL, I feel lucky my children get to come to such a great school.”  Emma Dyas, SCL International School Director.

SCL International School shared their event. ...

Koh Samui neutering fundraiser

October 15, 2016, 11:00am - October 15, 2016, 4:00pm

A message from Dara. Greetings; I would like to share information about an important event that is happening at SCL International School, in Lamai, this coming October the 15th. It will start at 11am and finish at 4pm. The school is hosting the event to help raise funds for a neutering project on the island. The event is being co – ordinated by Dara (of SCL) and Carla in order to maximize awareness, and increase involvement of the Koh Samui community in the neutering project. So far, there has been an impressive response from the local community offering their services, might I add, for free. There will be no charge on the door, but there will be plenty of events and stalls to choose from that have a small charge. There will be food stalls with delicacies from local bakeries. I hope my favourite chocolate cake will be there! Hot dogs, smoothies, refreshing drinks, and salads, all donated by local businesses, will be laid out for you. A local magician will be hiding in his magic house waiting to flabbergast kids and adults alike. A digger has been donated for the day, waiting for little and big kids to learn how to use it. The local Circus is coming down to entertain us with their acrobatic skills. Ladies will be happy to have jewellery making, henna tattoos, pilates, and manicures and pedicures to pass the time at a minimal cost. Boys, you are not forgotten! There will be some lovely bikers arriving with their Harley Davidson bikes. There will be second-hand clothes and toy stalls, and any leftover clothes will be donated to the local Thai Animal lover group, who sell clothes at markets every week so they can buy food for the street dogs. If you do not want to participate in the priced events, there will be live music and a kids fashion show to entertain you. There will be many more activities on the day, so I hope to see you at SCL International School to support the neutering and feeding project.
