Sunsuria & Concord College International To Launch A New British International School


Sunsuria Berhad (“Sunsuria”) and Concord College International Limited (“Concord College International”) have entered into a strategic partnership, marking Sunsuria’s entry into the international education sector.

Under the partnership, the two parties will establish and operate a British international school within Sunsuria City under the Concord College International brand. SESB is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sunsuria while Concord College International is a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Bell Concord Educational Trust Limited, a UK-based educational charity that owns and
operates Concord College, one of the UK’s top ranked independent coeducational international schools.

The partnership is expected to bring synergistic value to Sunsuria’s flagship Sunsuria City township by offering holistic international education to the residents and surrounding community.

Catering to students aged 5 to 18 years old, the new British internationals school in Sunsuria City will offer a broad and balanced education based on the UK National Curriculum for Primary (Years 1 to 6), Senior (Years 7 to 11) and Sixth Form (A-Level). 

Catering to 1,250 students, the school will offer both day and boarding options to attract students from Malaysia, and other countries across Asean and Asia. 

Phase 1 of the school’s construction is expected to be completed by December 2023, with first intake commencing in September 2024. The international mix of expatriate and local academic staff and student cohort simulates a global learning environment that fosters cultural diversity and international relations.

The new international school ’s student-teacher ratio of 25:1 will ensure greater individualised attention for every student. This is consistent with Concord College’s ethos of rigour, which aims to monitor student progress closely through prep, classwork, and examinations, as well as make sure students’ individual needs are identified and supported. Spanning over 10 acres of built-up area, the new international school will be located across the Xiamen University Malaysia campus in Sunsuria City.

The new international school will consist of 10 buildings housing the main hall, academics, creative arts and science, library, dining hall, student residences, auditorium as well as sports and recreational hall. Other facilities include lawn amphitheatre, swimming pool, tennis courts, sports track and field, drama studios as well as music and art rooms
