In Conversation with Carthusians

Our curriculum is described as ‘three-dimensional’ because it is designed to nurture a student’s intellectual growth alongside their ethical and spiritual development. Students acquire ethical understanding by identifying and investigating the nature of ethical concepts, values and reasoning.

By engaging in community projects, they develop a respect for others and learn to act with ethical integrity. In an environment that respects the individual and relationships, students develop compassion and mindfulness, which fosters the development of the ultimate human qualities that we think of as the spirit.

Let’s hear it from our very own Carthusians sharing their experience with our unique and holistic, Future Ready education.

Cambridge IGCSE

IGCSE is an internationally recognised qualification that encourages learner-centred and enquiry-based approaches to learning. Our classes are conducted in a modern, safe and secure environment with a maximum of 18 students per class.

The ‘three-dimensional’ curriculum at Charterhouse is designed to nurture a student’s intellectual growth alongside their ethical and spiritual development. This encourages more face-to-face learning with a strong focus in independent study and research that nurtures critical thinking skills and fosters values and attributes such as honesty, resilience, empathy and respect for others.

Cambridge A Level

The Cambridge A Level is considered the ‘Gold Standard’ of international pre-university qualifications and is the gateway to the most prestigious universities worldwide.

The high standards of teaching, unique learning methods and scholarships provided at Charterhouse Malaysia drives academic achievement. Our students are taught in small groups with a maximum of 12 students per class, where each mindful interaction drives strong academic achievement with a strong emphasis on independent study and research.

Each lesson goes beyond the academic learning, as we equip our students with a comprehensive and recognisable qualification, skills and future ready qualities to move confidently in the world.

Our Curriculum

Our robust curriculum prepares students for Cambridge IGCSE and the International A-Level examinations, accepted by universities in the UK, America, Australia and around the world. It is designed to furnish students with a Future Ready mindset.

Independent Learning Project

The Independent Learning Project forms an integral part of our curriculum. Over the course of their programme learners will participate in service and entrepreneurial learning by conducting an Independent Research Project aimed at solving a real-world problem.

Design Thinking

Our students are taught to solve problems using design thinking, an innovative process widely used by scientists, inventors and innovators. The Charterhouse approach to design thinking is called WEAVE.

Spectra Smarts

Spectra Smarts is a unique approach designed to encourage critical, creative and inquisitive thinking in students. By moving away from a traditional education model, we prepare young people for future success.

Charterhouse Forum

All students will become members of the Charterhouse Forum – a platform that encourages students to pick up leadership roles or be active team members – and have a substantial impact on the Charterhouse Community and beyond.

Charterhouse Learner’s Portfolio (CLP)

The Charterhouse Learner’s Portfolio is an online platform where students are able to showcase their learning journey (Study), provide evidence of how they creatively approached challenges and overcame them (Create), and how their actions and participation in the school and community can act as a positive example to others (Inspire).

Our Campus

At Charterhouse, we believe that learning no longer happens exclusively in the classroom. Our campus design is based on the work of a leading futurist in educational technology where each space has an intended purpose and is created for optimal learning flow and flexibility. Our varied and creative learning environment in the school boasts cutting-edge design and materials. Transcend the ordinary and step into a Future Ready campus.
