King Henry VIII College, Malaysia will take its first pupils in September 2018. It will be a fully-fledged sister school to Christ College, Brecon, one the UK’s oldest schools, founded by Henry VIII in 1541.
Like its Welsh sibling, King Henry VIII College will be a co-educational boarding and day school, with pupils from 3 to 18 years of age. We will share the values and ethos of Christ College, and make the most of our links in the UK and across the globe, ensuring we are very much an international school.
Christ College Brecon is set in the Brecon Beacons National Park - one of the most beautiful areas of the United Kingdom.
King Henry VIII College will have a rather more modern, urban setting in the Multi-Media Super Corridor hub that is Cyberjaya - a rapidly-developing planned township, mid-way between Kuala Lumpur City Centre and KL International Airport. The school will be an impressive modern campus, with outstanding, purpose-built facilities.
Work on the school is well underway, and the Senior Management Team are already in place in Malaysia. A sizeable roll is expected in the first year of operation, with teacher recruitment planned to meet this demand.
Each teaching position presents a wonderful opportunity for an enthusiastic and experienced individual with a particular interest in being part of a new school, establishing its reputation. In the Early Years section of KH8 Primary, the role of leader will be available to a suitably qualified successful applicant.
Residential pastoral roles will also feature in the school’s staffing; applicants with an interest in this side of boarding school life should state this. All teachers are expected to contribute to the general community life of KH8.
