Epsom College in Malaysia
Gifting your child with the best of British education without shipping them across continents, is no longer a pipe dream. Introducing *drumroll* Epsom College’s first overseas campus in Bandar Enstek (a stone’s throw away from KL).
Building upon the rich heritage and academic excellence of over 150 years in the UK, Epsom College in Malaysia is a co-ed boarding school for ages three to 18 and will welcome a diverse, multi-cultural student population when it opens its doors in September this year.
So besides receiving a traditional British-style education, your child will get the chance to forge lifelong friendships with peers from all around the globe. Talk about a global citizen!
You might also find the Epsom name familiar because of its illustrious alumnus – AirAsia CEO Tan Sri Tony Fernandes, who played an integral role (as Chairman of Governors) in bringing Epsom’s prestigious education to his home-country Malaysia.
Set on a sprawling 50-acre campus, Epsom College is all about personalized learning – classes are kept small at a max of 24 students per class in Senior School, and 16 per class in Prep School. If active describes your tyke to a T, you’ll be glad to know that outdoor learning is embraced, with teachers incorporating outdoor activities into lessons and green spaces easily accessible from classrooms.
Epsom’s boarding houses deserve a spot in the limelight too. Catering to Senior School students, an impressive host of facilities like recreation rooms, sports facilities (FIFA approved turf football pitches, squash courts, fitness centre, swimming pools, etc), an art and design theatre (along with a 600-seat theatre, dance studios, rehearsal suites, etc), dining hall, and a fully furbished medical centre are available.
So, besides helping your child achieve academic excellence, Epsom provides ample opportunity for students to explore and groom their potential in arts, music, theatre, and sports. Makes us wish we were students all over again!
If you’re worried about parting from your darling, rest assured that they’re in good, capable hands. Each boarding house will have Housemasters and Housemistresses living alongside students (90% of Epsom staff stay on campus), ensuring that Epsom provides a stable, supportive, and educational home away from home! And it also gets two thumbs up from us for convenience, located just 15 minutes from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and the Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT).
