English Department


My name is Abigail Forsyth and I am delighted to introduce myself as the Head Teacher of the English Department at Oonrak Koh Samui School.

I am from the south of England and I graduated with an Honours Degree in Modern Foreign Languages from the University of Southampton. I then decided to begin a career in teaching and completed a further one year course to obtain a Postgraduate Certificate in Education. After teaching in language schools and public schools in England, I went on to teach at international schools in Thailand for 7 years.

I am very fortunate to lead a dedicated team of staff at Oonrak Koh Samui School as we strive for excellence and the very best educational experience for all students. My primary aim is to instil a lifelong love of learning for our students and for each of them to develop a sense of responsibility for the world in which we live. With this aim in mind, and in order to ensure that we meet internationally recognised academic standards, Oonrak adopts a combination of subject-based core learning with inquiry and project-based learning using a combination of the Thai Core Curriculum, the UK National Curriculum and the Cambridge International Curriculum                                             

I invite you to come and visit our school or to contact me directly to find out more about our school. I look forward to working with you to create the best possible learning environment for your child.

With kindest regards,


Abigail Forsyth
