TIS Puchong follows an international curriculum based on the highly valued National Curriculum of England.

Cambridge IGCSE is the world’s most popular international qualification. It is recognised by leading universities and employers worldwide, and is an international passport to progression and success.

Early Years

During the Early Years (Nursery and Reception), the emphasis is on Literacy and Numeracy to prepare children to read and write well with beginning of a foundation in Mathematics in a play based learning environment.

At this foundation stage, we cover learning in 3 Prime Areas; Communication and Language, Physical Development; and Personal, Social and Emotional Development to ignite children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning. As children grow, the Prime Areas will help them to develop skills in 4 Specific Areas which includes Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and lastly, Expressive Arts and Design.
We use the thematic approach to cover these areas as well as in Creative Development, and Knowledge of the World.
Our Early Years programme is based on the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework for England, which is also enhanced with language training in Bahasa Malaysia and Mandarin. These languages are introduced to students in a fun and interesting way; through singing, story telling and role-play.

Primary

Primary School covers Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2) and Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 6). The focus is to build on literacy and numeracy skills. In addition to these core areas, a wide range of other subjects are taken from the National Curriculum for England, including Design and Technology, Art and Design, Personal Social and Health Education, Music, Science, Geography, Physical Education and Information Communication Technology.

In Key Stages 1 and 2, learning is hands-on, exciting and interesting. Children are actively involved in their lessons and are motivated to do things for themselves where they learn to ask questions and have the confidence to think for themselves. They will become more independent and make progress to achieve their full potential.

Secondary

Secondary School covers Key Stages 3 and 4.

Key Stage 3 marks the beginning of Secondary education with Years 7 to 9. These next three years of learning will extend the knowledge and skills in subjects taught during Key Stage 2. The programme follows the National Curriculum for England, enhanced by international themes and languages in Bahasa Malaysia and Mandarin. All subjects at this stage are taught by specialist teachers take place in dedicated classrooms. 

Key Stage 4 covers Years 10 and 11. This stage offers a two-year IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) course that culminates in examinations administered by the University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE).
The IGCSE qualification is highly recognised worldwide, and places importance in content knowledge, application and skills. It is the equivalent of SPM, however with IGCSE, students graduate a year earlier than their SPM counterparts.
During this stage, students will focus on a selection of subjects that include the core subjects of Maths, English and Science, as well as continuing Key Stage 3 subjects. New subjects such as Business Studies, Performing Arts, Economics, English Literature and Additional Mathematics are offered.

After IGCSE, students are able to transit into Sixth Form or pre-university/foundation courses offered by Taylor’s International School Kuala Lumpur, Taylor’s College and Taylor’s University or any other colleges around the world.
