- About Penang Campus
Our curriculum is based upon British standards accessed through Cambridge qualifications which include Primary and Secondary Checkpoint, IGCSE and A-Levels (which is our intention to offer from September 2016). Our subjects taught include Personal, Social, Health Education (PSHE), Art, Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Music, Speech, Drama, History and Geography. Secondary students also study Business, using a programme designed by our specialist staff.
All Malaysian nationals study Bahasa Malaysia, Malaysian History and Moral Studies, while Mandarin is compulsory for all students at the school, whether as a first or second language. French is also available to overseas students and Muslim students receive tuition in Islamic Studies.
Students in Years 10 and 11 are offered an IGCSE options package, also from Cambridge. Our curriculum in many subjects is ‘internationalised’ to suit an Asian setting, particularly in the Humanities.
Integrated within our curriculum is a focus upon service based learning as well as project work, which develops other skills’ such as independent thinking, presentations, group work and research.
