Beyond the Curriculum

All students and staff belong to one of four houses: Rusa, Naga, Harimau or Burung Kenyalang. During the year there is a variety of inter-house competitions which test academic and sporting abilities in friendly rivalry.

Pastoral Care

It’s in our nature to go the extra mile and our exceptional pastoral care ensures that our children feel valued and well supported. Our campus has a Designated Safeguarding Lead and each class has a form tutor to oversees the students’ academic, pastoral and co-curricular progress on a regular basis. The form tutor builds strong relationships between their form and their families and is the first person to whom parents and students turn to for contact and advice.
