About Pelkhil

Winter in Pelkhil School

Pelkhil School is a private K-12 school located in Tashi Pelkhil Village along the banks of Thimchhu in Thimphu Valley. It was established in 2010, the Year of the Iron Tiger and the school mascot is the tiger. The 8-acre campus is just minutes from the centre of the capital city yet it enjoys the quiet of a rural setting. We are a co-educational, non-residential campus and we do our best also for our special-needs children.

Our programs balance academic achievement with all-round development in sports and other activities. Our annual school calendar is perhaps the densest among all schools in Thimphu!

Our faculty is not just a group of teachers but a committed team that creates a truly caring atmosphere both in and outside the classrooms.

Pelkhil School is the primary sponsor of Bhutan Judo Association, and our students have already won dozens of medals for Bhutan during the past 14 years. They have even participated in the Olympics (Tokyo), the Asian Games (Hangzhou) and the South Asian Games (Nepal).

From 2024, we will introduce Cambridge Assessment International Curriculum. We will start with Cambridge Primary for Classes PP – II and then keep upgrading annually. Until the transition is complete, the senior students will continue to sit for the Bhutanese board exams under BCSEA.
