TIS Puchong follows an international curriculum based on the highly valued National Curriculum of England. It caters for students from Early Years to Secondary and culminates with excellence in the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examination and qualification at the age of 16.

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. 

Although emphasis is given to global perspectives, the International Curriculum offered by TIS Puchong embraces Asian values and literacy in Bahasa Malaysia and Mandarin

Early Years

We offer the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC) during Nursery and Reception. The IEYC has a set of four Learning Strands - Independence & Interdependence, Communicating, Enquiring and Healthy Living & Physical Well-Being. Each of the four Learning Stands describes what children will experience and learn.
Each IEYC unit of learning has been carefully designed around a central theme, holistically linking all four Learning Strands to relevant and engaging activities that can be adapted and extended to meet individual needs.
Bahasa Malaysia and Mandarin are also introduced to prepare our children for more formal learning in 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.

Our Primary School Programme is also enhanced by the highly regarded International Primary Curriculum (IPC). IPC helps children to develop solid learning abilities through a wide variety of themes. 

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 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 in Key Stage 4.

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.
