Why The Bri­tish In­ter­na­tional School of Kuala Lumpur?

Expatriate Lifestyle - Essentials Education - - Directory - Janet Brock Head­teacher

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.
