The British International School of Kuala Lumpur: part of the Nord Anglia education family

The British International School of Kuala Lumpur (BSKL) is a warm and welcoming international community. Our commitment to nurturing student happiness forms the foundation of student success and our ‘be ambitious’ philosophy.

British International School of Kuala Lumpur campus
The British International School of Kuala Lumpur (BSKL), offers an early years programme featuring play-based learning for children as young as 2 and continues with primary school and secondary school programmes culminating with A-levels in Year 13. Students from more than 60 nationalities learn, collaborate and build together; making the school community authentically international.
BSKL places students at the heart of everything we do. Including a personalised learning programme that allows teachers to challenge students to grow, while assessing them against their own past performance. This ensures that all students experience growth, are open to trying new opportunities and will be invested in their learning and success.

Our teachers know each child and engage them in an exceptional learning environment. This results in happy children who look forward to coming to school each day and working to achieve more than they thought possible. A positive education curriculum in primary school helps children unlock even more potential by building habits and skills around resilience, self-care and communication. A pastoral focus in secondary school builds on those skills as the academic curriculum becomes more challenging.
