Taweethapisek School (Thai: โรงเรียนทวีธาภิเศก) is a 7th oldest Boys' School in Thailand for 7th to 12th grade students, located in Bangkok Yai District, Bangkok, Thailand in the Bangkok Thonburi Area. The school was funded by King Chulalongkorn (Rama V) on 19 July 1985. The school has one branch, located at Bangkokyaii in Bangkok. The school has facilities such as basketball and table-tennis as well as a 400-metre running track around the football field. As of 2013 there are about 3,000 students. Most of the students are Thai and mostly Buddhist, while other students follow other religions, including Hinduism, Islam, and Christianity.


Taweethapisek school


Taweethapisek School was established on July 19, 1895 by King Rama V who ruled the Kingdom twice as long as his grandfather, King Rama II. To celebrate this special occasion, King Rama V wanted to establish a school in honor of his grandfather. He donated 2,000,000 baht and persuaded the royal members to donate to build the school at Wat Arunrajawararam, the royal temple of King Rama II. King Rama V named the school “Taweethapisek”. “Tawee” means twice or double and “pisek” means coronation. When the school started, there were 162 students and 6 teachers. The first school building was 4 stories high and the first director was KhunUparakansilapaset.

In 1951, the school started to move some students to study at a new location “Wat Nakklang” because the school building at Wat Arun was too small for an excessive number of students. In 1960, the school building at Wat Nakklang was finished, and all the students from 7th – 12th grade were moved to the new school that year. Since that time, the school at Nakklang has been the place to study for new students until today.

    School Symbol

    On the coronation day of King Rama V, Taweethapisek coins were given to the royal members and bureaucrats who came to join the Taweethapisek ceremony. Thus, the school uses the coin as the school symbol. In the school symbol, there are coats of arms of King Rama II, King Rama V, and other insignias that represent both King Rama II and King Rama V.
