British International Senior School in Malaysia

Senior School

The Senior School caters for Year 9 to Year 13 (age 13 to 18).  Academically, the UK National Curriculum is broadly followed to ensure an optimal combination of breadth and specialisation through the IGCSE curriculum (to Year 11); and the International Baccalaureate (to Year 13).  Pupils pursue tailored programmes designed to stimulate, challenge and support them in discovering and developing their talents in a variety of areas.  A wide range of academic extension and enrichment activities – whether through societies, lectures, theatre trips, museum and gallery visits, debates, poetry readings, conferences and concerts – create a full co-curriculum, which recognises that qualifications alone do not produce well-rounded individuals.  Time is allowed in the curriculum for co-curricular activities, and the timetable may be suspended or modified to allow activities to occur, such as sports fixtures and subject-specific day trips.

Our ethos mirrors Marlborough College UK: a British independent boarding school community extending high-quality pastoral care, and a huge variety of co-curricular activities, to our day pupil cohort, too.  The vast majority of teachers here are British trained, and there is an impressive range of academic subjects.  Our internationally recognised IB and IGCSE results are excellent, demonstrating impressive added value.  The exceptional facilities promote the remarkable range and quality of the arts, to complement the variety of high-class sport offered on the vast campus.  Finally, our pupils are receptive, inclusive and respectful, with an enormously friendly, helpful spirit displayed throughout the year groups.
