BSKL opened in 2009 and has developed into one of the best international schools in the country. It is now part of the Nord Anglia Education (NAE) group, which currently has 56 premium international schools located in 24 countries around the world.
Being part of the NAE network allows BSKL to continue to strengthen its academic credentials and enhance learning through a number of key initiatives, including the Global Campus connecting 50,000 students around the world. This programme offers events and expeditions in Southeast Asia and beyond and allows students to develop an international perspective via online, in-school and global experiences. There are also the tremendous benefits from collaborations with elite schools like MIT and Juilliard.
NAE’s global scale also enables the school to continue to recruit and retain teachers who are committed to nurturing and inspiring children, and they are given continuous training and development through the Nord Anglia University. All teachers hold international teaching qualifications from renowned institutions.
The school follows a globally accepted curriculum based on the English National Curriculum and was recently graded ‘excellent in all areas of educational provision’ in the Independent Schools Inspectorate report – a result that is comparable to that of many top UK independent schools and 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.
BSKL students consistently score excellent grades at all levels from the SATS (Standardised Assessment Tests) in primary school to IGCSE exams; and all Year 13 A Level students secured places at their first choice university in the previous academic year.
School facilities are spread across three state-of-the-art campuses and include indoor sports halls, sports fields, swimming pools, specialist music and dance rooms, libraries and a 650-seat theatre. The latest educational technology features strongly and teachers are constantly encouraging independent thinking, resilience, confidence and taking initiative – necessary qualities to become valuable global citizens.
Through personalised learning, BSKL is committed to giving all students the opportunity to pursue their individual strengths and talents, and to ensure they are well prepared academically and personally to pursue tertiary education. In a rapidly changing world, these are all important benefits. BSKL aims high and is a top choice for both expatriate and local families.
