Sri KDU® International School
About Sri KDU® International School
Sri KDU International School. The best of the British International Curriculum, backed by the Paramount Education Group’s ethos of letting every student shine.
Sri KDU® International School (SKIS) is part of the network of Sri KDU Schools.
The Sri KDU Schools network began in 2003, when Paramount Corporation Berhad (a Malaysian public listed company) established Sekolah Sri KDU, a purpose-built private National Curriculum school set up to provide primary and secondary school education, anchored on the ethos of “Malaysian Hearts, Global Minds”.
Sekolah Sri KDU enjoyed phenomenal success and quickly reached full enrollment, paving the way for Sri KDU International School (SKIS) to open in September 2011.
SKIS offers the UK National Curriculum for Years 1-9, the IGCSE for Years 10-11, and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme for Years 12-13. It gives parents the option of a British International curriculum, but anchored on the Sri KDU School’s strong focus on personal development and pastoral care; creating the opportunity for every student to shine.
SKIS quickly established a reputation for offering an excellent academic programme for children of all nationalities. Led by British teachers offering the very latest methodologies in a holistic setting, “the education we offer is as good as any school in the region.”
SKIS shares the Kota Damansara campus with Sekolah Sri KDU, thereby synergising Sri KDU’s resources, talents, facilities, ideas and methodologies.
In terms of fees, SKIS is in the mid-range category, with fee around RM30,000 – RM45,000 per annum. Parents perceive this as value for money as they benefit from a 50% expatriate teaching staff, international teaching and learning pedagogy, a holistic programme with modern academic, sports and performing arts facilities.
Sri KDU is a trusted brand, parents have easily accepted SKIS as a good alternative for the British curriculum for the following reasons:
- Part of the 31 year old Paramount Education Group
SKIS is an integral part of the Paramount Education Group, a pioneer in private tertiary education in Malaysia, offering the full spectrum of education services. Paramount Education is recognised for its high quality, good value education offering, and its ethos of letting every student shine.
- Focus on pastoral care and personalised learning to bring out the best in every student.
Personalised learning is at the heart of Sri KDU International School. SKIS has a pastoral system which helps students fulfil their individual potential, whatever their background and ability may be. As part of SKIS’ student-centred, holistic education approach, much emphasis is also given to sports, music, the performing arts and community-service activities as part of the school curriculum.
The SKIS philosophy is "Every child matters"; our Year based pastoral system with Form tutors and Year Leaders is designed so that every child in the school has an academic mentor and a pastoral champion who ensures that they achieve their best in all areas.
We have a highly qualified and experienced Sixth Form team who give guidance about University Entrance and we start with that guidance early - as early as making Option choices for IGCSE.
We support the students with UCAS applications and the writing of Personal Statements. We support families with advice and guidance about the best schools and colleges in the UK, other countries and Malaysia. There is a Guidance Counsellor and a Careers Fair each year.
