King Henry VIII College, Malaysia
This international school in Malaysia is a co-educational boarding and day school, with pupils from 3 to 18 years of age. The curriculum is closely based on the UK National Curriculum. The curriculum is carefully structured to provide a balance of subjects and to allow individuals to play to their academic strengths. The emphasis is on first class teaching, provided in well-resourced departments and with small class sizes, allowing plenty of individual attention for students.
