BOARDING

Please click the drop down box's for more information.

What makes boarding at KTJ special?

Two things: the friendliness of the School community, which our students often refer to, and the dedication of our staff.

What do boarders do in their free time?

Boarders have some free time after school and at weekends, and can, of course, make use of the sports, recreational and library facilities at the School and in their Houses. There are over one hundred activities, sports and artistic pursuits that students can choose to take part in each evening. At the weekends, trips are often organised and we have a Saturday Evening programme of entertainment for students.

Can students go home at weekends?

Our boarders are all full boarders who stay with us on a permanent basis during term time, however, we have exeat weekends approximately every three weeks where students can, if they wish, go home. Sixth Form students are allowed out at weekends with their parent’s permission. Younger students are also allowed out occasionally, with their parents, if their Houseparent’s give special permission.

What are the ages of KTJ boarders?

We have boarders from age 11- 19.  Boarding is available for both boys and girls, and residence is not mixed.

Where do KTJ boarders come from?

We welcome boarders from all around the world. The split between boy and girl boarders is almost 50:50.  International boarders currently come from the UK, Australia, Cambodia, Thailand, Indonesia, the Maldives, Taiwan, China, Japan, Bangladesh and South Korea.

How do we apply for a boarding place?

Please contact the School Registrar, Ms. Fayeza Davis on 06 7582995 or at registrar@ktj.edu.my

When can I contact my son or daughter?

Lesson and homework times are fixed, so it is useful to find out when your son or daughter is likely to be busy. In general, though, the School welcomes the chance to keep parents up to date whether by phone, fax or email. If you are in the area and let us know, we are always happy to see you. Students have their own email addresses to facilitate regular contact with home.

Do students have good access to the internet and telephone?

There is wi-fi access across the School site and students can use their laptops to access it in their own bedrooms. Alternatively, they can access the internet on their House library’s computers. Parents are welcome to call their children at any time outside of teaching and prep hours as long as it is not after lights out.

How many boarding houses are there in KTJ?

There are eight Houses. The junior boarding house is for our younger students; it has a boys' wing and a girls' wing. Normally, around the age of 13 or 14, students will move up to one of our seven senior Houses.

How do parents of boarders communicate with staff and boarders?

The boarding Houseparent responsible for your son or daughter will provide you with their mobile phone numbers and email addresses. Boarders have access, in the boarding house, to Skype, wireless technology, internet–linked computers (that are monitored), and they may also have their own mobile phones.

Can students stay in school during the holidays?

There is no provision for care outside of term-times unless there are public exams at that time. This does not include exeat weekends, where the school and boarding houses remains open.
