Bangkok Patana School operates its own school bus service to provide safe and efficient journeys between home and school. The service is offered across an extensive part of the city but cannot be guaranteed to all districts. All of our 235 air-conditioned buses are equipped with a mobile telephone and are independently checked at regular intervals. Each bus seats no more than eight children and a monitor.

Bus drivers and monitors participate in training programmes in order to meet our requirement of safety and reliability.

Further details are available through the Transport Office:

We have a nutritionist on staff who works with our chefs on meal plans that offer a good variety of options and are also healthy and nutritious.

School Nurse

There are two Medical Units at Patana, one for Primary students near the Primary Library, and another for Secondary students near the Design + Technology department. These units are open during school hours and for events outside school hours. They are staffed by fully-qualified nurses who respond to minor injuries and can help secure emergency hospital treatment when necessary. If you have any queries, please contact the Head Nurse, Khun Patama ext 2478 and 2479, or email

  • First aid and medical emergency response

    The school has the required number of first aiders and first aid kits so that minor injuries are treated and, most importantly, major medical emergencies receive an immediate response. Nursing cover is provided throughout the school day, during overnight school trips and during official school sporting events.

  • Medical history

    When you enrol your child at school, you will be asked to fill out a medical information form.

It is very important that this information is accurate, complete, and up-to-date (particularly phone numbers and email addresses) in case there is a serious illness or accident.

It is especially important to include information about any medical problems such as asthma, allergies or diabetes

In case of a medical emergency, parents will be contacted first. However, at enrolment and throughout the year, parents must identify an additional emergency contact person for each child, and provide their contact information. Parents are asked to confirm and update all medical information before school field trips and residentials. However, during the year, please also inform the school of any changes to your own and your emergency contact’s home and mobile phone numbers, so that these updates are passed on to the nurses.
