All fees must be settled in full, within seven (14) days before the term starts. If fees are not settled before the date due, your child will be denied entrance into the class. For new students, the school reserves the right to give your child’s place to an incoming student on our waiting list.

We are from Korea and will be moving to Kuala Lumpur next year. My daughter is 13 years old and currently studying in Grade 7. Will she study in Grade 8 next year?

After completing the Registration Form and paying the non-refundable pre-registration fee, your daughter will be required to take a Placement Test. This test will cover the subjects: English and Mathematics. An interview will then be arranged with yourself; your daughter and the School Principal to discuss the test results. This is to assess her knowledge of the English Language. The School Registrar will then make a recommendation to the School Principal as to what is the appropriate level for your daughter. Your daughter’s enrolment into Grade 8 will depend on the results of the Placement Test and the assessment of the School Principal from the informal interview.

What curriculum does your school follow?

  1. Utama International Schools offers the UK Curriculum and students will ultimately sit for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) also known as the O-Level.
  2. Sekolah Sri Utama offers the National Curriculum. Students sit for a Primary School Evaluation Test at Standard 6 (UPSR), a Lower Secondary Assessment at Form 3 (PMR) and the Malaysian Certificate of Education at Form 5 (SPM).

If our child faces difficulties in speaking the English language, do you offer any extra English Language classes to help?

We currently do not provide special English language programs.

Are parents allowed to wait for their child during school hours within the school compound?

Our school policy does not allow parents/minders to wait for the students during school hours, as this would distract the students from their studies and at the same time discourage the student’s sense of independence.

Does the school have bus services?

Yes, there are school buses which circulate around neighbourhoods. You may retrieve the contact details of the school bus service upon enrolling your child to enquire if the school bus circulation includes your neighbourhood and make necessary arrangements.
