About Epsom College in Malaysia

Epsom College in Malaysia is a new boarding and day school on a 50-acre site at Bandar Enstek, south of Kuala Lumpur. Seen as a major development in the field of education in Malaysia, Epsom is co-educational and will follow the British National Curriculum with all teaching in English. The Senior School, which is both a day and boarding school, will open in September 2014 with a small Prep School on site too for day pupils 2 – 11 years old.

Based on the home model, Epsom College in Malaysia will combine academic excellence with a first class British boarding experience, with up to 90 per cent of the Senior School boarding. The emphasis will be on creating a family environment within a structured school routine, with a traditional British House system fostering a strong feeling of belonging and community.

Founded in 1855, Epsom College was established by Dr John Propert as a school to educate the sons of doctors and has Her Majesty, The Queen, as patron.

With a long history of educating Malaysian and other international students in England, our branch in Kuala Lumpur is a natural extension designed to further the College's international reputation and increase the number of pupils who can benefit from an Epsom College education.

The project has been made possible through the joint funding and support of the College's network of high profile Old Epsomians living and working in Malaysia. The College has strong links with many influential Malaysian figures, not least Tan Sri Dr Tony Fernandes, himself a former pupil of Epsom College, who has been appointed Chairman of the Governors of the new school.

Senior School teaching staff, Housemasters and Housemistresses, together with tutors and their families, will be resident on site. There will also be a Prefect system, modelled on the successful structure at Epsom College, within both the school and the individual Houses.

In addition to full boarding, weekly boarding, which was pioneered by Epsom College in the UK, will be an option. It is believed that this will be popular with parents who want a British boarding lifestyle for their children without having to travel long distances.

Epsom College in Malaysia will ultimately cater for some 900 boys and girls aged 11 to 18 in a predominantly boarding Senior School, with an additional 650 students educated in the Prep School.

The impressive Senior School campus, being developed on a green-field site, will comprise ultra-modern hi-tech, environmentally-friendly buildings, with specialised facilities for music, drama and sport, the latter including floodlit astroturf pitches, sports halls, a swimming pool and hard courts. There will also be dedicated science and art departments.

The Prep School at Bandar Enstek will be a small community of children between 2-11 years who will share facilities and spaces especially designed for their learning and pastoral needs. From a carefully designed playground, with a sandpit, gardens, with climbing and ball games, as well as opportunities to access the Senior School's impressive facilities for art and sports, our Prep School will be a very special place of learning.
