Why The British International School of Kuala Lumpur?
I am proud to say that The British International School of Kuala Lumpur (BSKL) is thriving as one of the top international schools in KL. We were recently graded as excellent in all areas of educational provision by the Independent Schools Inspectorate; a result that is comparable to that of many top UK independent schools and is unprecedented in Malaysia.
Our children achieve excellent exam results, outperforming many of their UK counterparts.
In the last academic year 71% of students achieved A*/A and 92% A*/B grades in all of their GCSE examinations. These academic achievements were also matched by our younger students in the SATS (Standardised Assessment Tests), with BSKL far surpassing the UK national average.
There is no doubt that these impressive results are down to our world-class teachers who are highly professional, inspirational and engaging with not just our students, but also our parents. Every teacher we employ has outstanding credentials and experience delivering the English National Curriculum, as well as the ability to nurture independence of mind, resilience and a caring disposition in our pupils.
We also believe that a student’s environment plays a significant part in their learning and here at BSKL we have created state-of-the-art facilities for our students and staff to work in. We have a 9-a-side covered sports field, three indoor sport halls, two swimming pools and two full size football fields.
For our music and performing arts programmes we have a 650-seat theatre and over 20 specialist music and dance rooms. We have libraries to cater for all of our students with over 20,000 books and unique learning areas, and the latest technology features strongly throughout the school.
In addition, we have recently opened a brand new Secondary campus on site which provides a modern, spacious and stimulating environment for our older students, including our first Sixth Form cohort who joined us in September 2016. The new campus incorporates the latest ideas and up-to-date features such as a 3D printing room and creative breakout spaces.
Understandably I am thrilled with all the achievements and developments we have experienced at BSKL.
I’m excited about the future for the school and the opportunities it will bring for current and prospective students, parents and teachers, and I hope we will continue to thrive to be the best international school in the city.
