Concord College UK is an academic school at which high expectations are the norm. Over the years generations of Concordians have benefited from this clear focus. This same academic focus will be evident in Concord College International School in Malaysia. The benefits of such high expectations are not only in the fulfilment of academic potential but in the acquisition of key skills, good habits and an understanding of how to work effectively and when to work hard. As ever, this clear focus on academic achievement is suffused with the nurturing of a creative growth mindset and built upon a foundation of kindness.
Primary School (Year 1-6)
Concord Primary includes provision for students in Key Stage 1 (Year 1 – Year 2) and Key Stage 2 (Year 3 – Year 6). Moving through each phase of the UK National Curriculum, students are guided to ensure they are well prepared for the transition into Secondary School. In line with our ethos, students will have access to an academically rigorous curriculum that is challenging and encourages creativity. As part of the school community, students are also expected to demonstrate kindness and respect towards others.
Secondary School & Sixth Form (Year 7 - 13/ A Level)
Concord Secondary’s curriculum broadly follows the English National Curriculum, which is widely respected by leading universities and employers around the world, appropriately adapted to reflect the context of Concord as an international school in Malaysia. Students are taught in the English medium, leading to IGCSE qualifications at age 16, and A levels in the Sixth Form at age 18.
Our curriculum is tailored to reflect the needs and aspirations of international, and internationally minded, students, while at the same time providing opportunity for all to be challenged in new and exciting ways which they may not have encountered in their previous schools. Students are offered a broad and rigorous curriculum which gives them the added enrichment of studying with and learning from young people from a range of cultures, religions and nationalities.
At Concord College UK there is a comprehensive Enrichment Programme offering a wide range of activities for students to participate in. Concord College International School (CCIS) in Malaysia will be adopting the same approach to enable students to develop their talents and interests at an age-appropriate level beyond the classroom.
