Opened in 2009, the British International School of Kuala Lumpur (BSKL) has become one of the finest international schools in the country, known for its outstanding facilities and excellent academic standards. The school is now part of the prestigious Nord Anglia Education (NAE) group, a global organisation comprising 56 international schools across 24 countries worldwide.
The NAE group of schools provides world-class education, as part of this network BSKL continues to strengthen its academic credentials and enhance learning through various key initiatives. With the NAE’s Global Campus connecting with 50,000 students across the world and a comprehensive programme of events and expeditions in the region and beyond, BSKL students will get the opportunity to explore the world and develop international perspectives via online, in-school and worldwide experiences. Collaborations with world-renowned organisations like MIT, Juilliard and UNICEF also provide BSKL students with great benefits.
BSKL is also able to continue recruiting and retaining the best educators in the world thanks to the NAE’s global scale. The teachers are provided with extensive professional development opportunities through the NAE, which in turn benefits the students with contemporary educational thinking and practices.
Internationally trained teachers and a globally respected curriculum based on the English National Curriculum has seen BSKL being graded as “excellent in all areas of educational provision” in the most recent Independent Schools Inspectorate report – a result unprecedented in Malaysia and comparable to top UK international schools. The school is also the first in Asia that has been awarded the COBIS (Council of British International Schools) Patron’s Accreditation.
Students at BSKL consistently achieve excellent exam results, often out-performing their UK counterparts. The last academic year saw 75% of students obtaining A*/A and 93% A8/B grades in all their IGCSEs, and 100% of Year 13 A Level students securing places at their first choice university.
BSKL provides students with exceptional facilities across three state-of-the-art campuses, which include the latest educational technology, indoor sports halls, swimming pools, football fields, specialist music and dance rooms, a 650-seat theatre and well-stocked libraries.
Personalised learning offers students ample opportunity to pursue their individual strengths and talents, and ensures they are well prepared for the next stage of their academic journey. Teachers are constantly encouraging students to take initiative and understand how they can positively affect their community, developing an independence of mind and resilience, and creating confident well-rounded ambitious individuals – a key focus at a school with a truly global outlook.
