Staff from a Perth school have headed to Thailand after a group of its students were left stranded when their teacher died in a lightning strike.

Social studies teacher Greg Crombie was leading a group of 15 students from Winthrop Baptist College on a week-long cultural exchange trip to Thailand, ABC reported on Sunday.

The group were resting near the water after a swim at Thad Tone waterfalls near the town of Nong Sung, in Thailand's northeast, when a thunderstorm struck, ABC reported.

It's believed Mr Crombie was hit by lightning.

A teaching assistant, reportedly in a serious condition, was to be evacuated by helicopter to Bangkok, about 600km from the falls, ABC said.

A year 11 student had also been hurt, it said.

The school's principal and a counsellor had flown to Thailand to be with the group and bring them home, but the earliest flight they could get back to Australia was Monday, ABC said.
