Steeped in 150 years of rich UK heritage, Epsom will offer students a first-class British day school and boarding experience in its first overseas campus. The co-educational boarding school (full or weekly board) and day school for 3-18 year olds is located just south of KL in Bandar Enstek.
Following the Cambridge International Examination (CIE) syllabus, Epsom College in Malaysia aims to mirror the academic excellence of Epsom College in the UK which consistently achieves an 84% of A-level grades at A*, A or B grade. “We have handpicked our teachers from the UK. They each have the qualifications and experience to deliver a UK curriculum at their relevant level,” remarked Martin George, Headmaster of Epsom College in Malaysia. “With a maximum class size of 24 students in the Senior School and 16 to 22 in the Prep School, we are perfectly poised to provide a world-class education.”
Epsom College in Malaysia is limiting the first year intake to 200 students and are currently holding Entry Assessments for pupils age 3 to 17 at the College’s KL office in Publika, Solaris Dutamas. “I am very excited to announce that we will begin our school tours in February which will enable families to fully experience what Epsom will have to offer their children,” added Mr George.
The Epsom College vision embraces the personal development of each student through innovation and creativity to achieve academic excellence and enable students to secure places at the world’s top universities. However, Epsom College in Malaysia, as with its sister college in the UK, will not only stress academic achievement but will provide an all-round holistic co-curriculum to maximize students’ full potential. These subjects include arts, music, dance, theatre, and an extensive selection of sports activities.
Epsom has a long tradition of excellence in the provision of the boarding and pastoral care for its students. The close-knit house system is renowned in the UK and has become one of the contributing reasons why parents choose Epsom College for their children.
“In seven months, the doors to Epsom College in Malaysia will be open to students from Malaysia and around the world. The values I learnt whilst at Epsom College in the UK have shaped who I have become today. They have nurtured my personal growth and given me the ambition, confidence, and leadership to never give up in the face of adversity,” shared Tan Sri Tony Fernandes, Chair of Governors, Epsom College in Malaysia.
The final touches to the 50-acre campus will be completed in time to welcome the inaugural student intake. The campus will boast a wireless internet infrastructure, a 650-seat theatre, 80 classrooms, recording studios, recital hall, sports centre, and cricket, rugby, tennis, netball and squash facilities.
