Welcome to The British International School of Kuala Lumpur. I am thrilled that you are considering our school for your child and hope that you can see that BSKL is an excellent choice. Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will have to make. We recognise this and at BSKL we ensure that every child achieves their potential and more. Through highly enjoyable and engaging learning experiences, pupils acquire the skills and knowledge set out in the English National Curriculum and also develop as their own individuals through a rich extra-curricular programme. We work hard to create an environment where children enjoy learning and feel safe and confident to participate.

School description

The British International School of Kuala Lumpur is one of the leading schools in KL that provides an exceptional education to children aged 2 -18. We are an independent, co-educational school covering all age groups from Early Years and Primary School through to Secondary School. 

Children who attend BSKL follow a broad curriculum based on the English National Curriculum. The school enjoys an extremely vibrant day-to-day life with children participating in music, drama, arts and sports programmes as well as a number of other enrichment activities. As part of their progress students sit the GL Assessments with BSKL children achieving above-average marks compared to their UK counterparts. In Secondary School the students work towards their IGCSE and A Levels before embarking on degrees at top universities worldwide. 

The British International School of Kuala Lumpur provides a unique experience that exceeds the basic academic fundamentals. As part of the British Schools Foundation (BSF), BSKL forms part of an established family of 10 elite schools that extends across the world in Asia, South America and Europe.

Our educational programme emphasises links with our worldwide network of BSF schools. It provides regular and frequent opportunities for engaging with the broader BSF family. As a result, our pupils are more likely to develop ambitions and a sense of their own potential that is marked by a broad, global perspective.

Being part of a family of schools that draws heavily from a tradition of exclusive British education we view character development as an essential part of our work. We rely on excellent teachers with the experience to nurture independence of mind, resilience, and a caring disposition in our pupils.
