The school, designed exclusively for upper secondary students, is an English-medium school that provides a modern outlook on both learning development and teaching pedagogies.

The launch involved students, parents, and invited dignitaries, which included His Highness Tengku Amir Shah ibni Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, Raja Muda (Crown Prince) of Selangor, who officiated the launch.

As the first Asia-based campus of one of Britain's most prestigious public schools, Charterhouse Malaysia offers the best of both worlds benefiting from the legacy of heritage, as it is well-positioned to harness the exciting potential of the future for the region.

Charterhouse has been evolving for over 400 years, and whilst the shared DNA with Charterhouse UK means the values and traditions of the parent school is ingrained in the culture of the school here, the Malaysian campus is part of an initiative to enhance innovation and the student journey in upper secondary learning. Charterhouse Malaysia exclusively delivers the globally-recognised A-Level programme—one of the leading pathways to university study.

Charterhouse’s outlook is very modern. From curriculum design, to the layout of learning spaces, students are encouraged to think and learn independently by engaging in projects in the local community by devising innovative solutions to social issues. This approach not only builds their confidence and leadership skills, but also a deeper sense of social responsibility.

Unique elements of the Charterhouse experience for student development include the Spectra Smarts intelligence based approach to personal development, the integration of design thinking into the curriculum, and the empowerment of the student voice through the Charterhouse Forum.

According to Charterhouse Malaysia's Founding Headteacher of Charterhouse International Secondary School, Richard Davidson, “We recognise that human intelligence is broad; it is not limited to academic intelligence, but includes social and emotional intelligence, as well as the ability to think deeply and evaluate that thinking, grasp new situations quickly, and most importantly, be able to assess personal abilities. At Charterhouse, we also believe very strongly in treating our teenagers as young adults. Excessive rules create a tense environment which teenagers are more likely to rebel against; therefore, our approach is to inculcate respect and responsibility, without the need for excessive or petty guidelines that stifle action."
