The British International School of Kuala Lumpur (BSKL) opened in 2009 and is part of the Nord Anglia Education (NAE) family, the world’s leading premium schools organisation with 55 international schools located in 24 countries around the world. BSKL follows a globally respected curriculum based on the English National Curriculum, and was graded “excellent in all areas of educational provision” in the most recent Independent Schools Inspectorate report; a result that is comparable to that of many top UK independent schools and is unprecedented in Malaysia. The school has also been awarded the COBIS (Council of British International Schools) Patron’s Accreditation and is the first school to gain this honour in Asia. In an increasingly competitive market, it is one of the of the best international schools in the city and continues to be a top international school of choice for both expatriate and local families.
BSKL teaches over 1,000 students from Early Years through to Sixth Form following the National Curriculum which is organised into blocks of years called ‘Key Stages’ (KS).
The Foundation Stage starts in the Early Years (ages 2 to 5), where learning is play based. Children acquire their first notions of numeracy and literacy through active, playful activities. By the end of the Early Years, most children have acquired basic reading and number skills and a grounding of a second language.
In the Primary school, KS 1 (ages 5 to 7) and KS 2 (ages 7 to 11) focuses on learning good fundamental Maths and English language skills. Science, Technology, Humanities and Art are covered as multi-disciplinary topics and through projects. Within Primary school, students will sit national exams called SATS in Year 2, and GL assessments in Year 6.
The curriculum in KS 3 Lower Secondary (ages 11 to 14) is more subject based and aims at building students’ ability to work independently and think critically. At this stage the emphasis is on exposing opportunities to a wide range of subjects so that they can begin to form ideas of where their academic interests lie.
Upper Secondary students in KS 4 work towards their (I)GCSE examinations (ages 14 to 16) and A-Level exams. At (I)GCSE, students study English, Maths, Science and a second language plus an additional four or five subjects from a selection. At A Level students specialise further and choose three or four subjects from a range of options.
Students achieve excellent exam results, out-performing many of their UK counterparts. In the last academic year 82% of students achieved A/A and 94% A/B grades in all of their (I)GCSE examinations. These academic achievements are also matched by the younger students in the SATS (Standardised Assessment Tests), with BSKL far outperforming the UK national average.
There is a 9-a-side covered sports field, three indoor sport halls, two swimming pools and two full size football fields. The music and performing arts programmes have a 650-seat theatre and over 20 specialist music and dance rooms. Three libraries cater for everyone with over 20,000 books and unique learning areas, and the latest technology features strongly throughout the school.
In September 2016, a brand new Secondary campus opened onsite, which provides a modern, spacious and stimulating environment for the older students, including the Sixth Form. The new campus incorporates the latest ideas and up-to-date features such as a 3D printing room and creative breakout spaces, creating one of a kind opportunities.
