Charterhouse UK Opens First International Campus In Malaysia

Today, Charterhouse UK inaugurated their first international campus “Charterhouse International Secondary School Kuala Lumpur” on its purpose-built campus in the heart of Hartamas. The school is an English-medium institution that provides a contemporary perspective on both learning development and teaching pedagogies. It is meant specifically for students in the upper secondary level.

Students, parents, and invited dignitaries participated at the launch, which was officiated by His Highness Tengku Amir Shah ibn Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, Raja Muda (Crown Prince) of Selangor.

The Chairman of the Board of Governors, YM Dato’ Syed Haizam, provided insight into this unique relationship and the significance of the school to them in his address. Other speakers were the President of the Charterhouse Forum, Aisyah Sophea, the Senior Deputy Head of Charterhouse UK, Andrew Turner, and Richard Davidson (Founding Headteacher of Charterhouse International Secondary School, Charterhouse Malaysia).

As the first Asia-based campus of one of the most prominent public schools in the United Kingdom, Charterhouse Malaysia offers the best of both worlds, benefiting from the legacy of heritage while also being well-positioned to capitalize on the exciting future possibilities of the region.

While the shared DNA with Charterhouse UK ensures that the principles and traditions of the home school are engrained in the culture of the school here, the Malaysian campus is a part of an initiative to increase innovation and the student journey in upper secondary education. Charterhouse Malaysia is the sole provider of the internationally-recognized A-Level programme, one of the most prominent routes to university study.

The perspective of Charterhouse is fairly modern. From the curriculum design to the arrangement of the learning spaces, students are encouraged to think and learn independently by engaging in projects in the local community and generating inventive solutions to societal problems. This strategy enhances not only their self-assurance and leadership abilities, but also their feeling of social duty.

Charterhouse cultivates a climate that fosters independence and responsibility so that students are well-prepared for university life upon graduation.
