King Henry VIII College, Malaysia welcomed its first students in September 2018. KH8 is 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 is a co-educational boarding and day school, with students from 3 to 18 years of age. We 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 has 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 has an impressive modern campus, with outstanding, purpose-built facilities.
Each teaching position at the school presents a wonderful opportunity for an enthusiastic individual with a particular interest in being part of a growing new school, as it establishes its reputation in the region. This post could also suit an NQT - although the school cannot as yet oversee the NQT induction year.
The curriculum at King Henry VIII is a recognisable British one; students sit Cambridge International IGCSE’s and AS/A levels. The Science Department is very well resourced with excellent new laboratories and dedicated prep rooms for each subject.
All teachers are expected to contribute to the school’s tutorial system, and to the general community life of KH8.
