While education is free for all in Bhutan, the country is yet to offer an option of high quality education that is reasonably priced. Pelkhil School’s Junior Wing is the only option for affordable, high quality and all-round education!

Our Junior Wing, with grades PP to VIII was established in 2013 with two sections of the pre-primary class. During this short period we have already demonstrated the highest in academic quality! In 2016 and 2017, Pelkhil School’s students led the nation in average scores in the national exams for grade III. Our scores were almost 20% higher than the average scores of government primary schools. This solid academic foundation will benefit our students for the rest of their lives.

Since 2016 we have introduced the Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) syllabi and text to supplement the regular curriculum in the Primary Wing. We have already received ministerial approval to fully adopt CIE and we are preparing for affiliation, though it has been delayed due to the worldwide pandemic. If you are keen to know more about Cambridge, here’s a link.

Visit our campus and discover what we have to offer that is unique and of the highest quality. Our commitment to affordable high quality education starts in the primary wing.

Early education is not just learning alphabets and numerals as many parents like to believe. Many parents rate schools that focus on just these activities as ‘good schools’.  There is obviously so much more that young children need to learn at a young age. In order to expose them to more than just a blackboard in a closed room, we offer many other activities in and outside of the classroom:

  • Physical Education , development of balance, coordination, overall fitness
  • Music and rhythm taught by certified music teachers
  • Creative expressions through regular activities in Art and Crafts taught by certified teachers
  • Classes outdoors, nature walks, feeling the natural environment
  • Personal hygiene
  • Practice of good nutrition in collaboration with parents
  • Skills for socialization

We have well trained teachers to impart these skills and habits. We are also keen to sort out the strange local English accent that is developing among Bhutanese students!

Besides a good faculty, there are other advantages of joining us:

  • Our fees are very affordable and lower than those of other schools in Thimphu.
  • The teacher-student ratio is very small.
  • Our campus provides the best facilities and the most space for the students to run around and play.
  • Students can continue on to the senior classes after primary school.

And a bonus: Ours is the only campus where you won’t face traffic congestion every morning! We have two points of entry to the campus from Lungtenphu and Olakha and adequate parking on campus.
