Inspired Learning for a Brighter Future

Welcome to the KTJ website!

Kolej Tuanku Ja'afar Secondary School has established itself over 20 years as the leading British-style, co-educational international boarding school in Malaysia, with over 600 secondary students from 11 to 19.

We hope after browsing these pages you will contact us and arrange to visit our outstanding campus. KTJ is proud to be spread across over 80 acres of beautiful Malaysian countryside, where we accomodate our students and provide an excellent range of facilities.

KTJ is a registered charity so all proceeds are channelled back into the school, which is why we are able to offer outstanding facilities, dedicated teachers and an exceptional education. Students at KTJ achieve superb examination grades, while being able to undertake a wide range of sporting and extra-curricular activities. They are also renowned for their independence and confidence, qualities that stand them in good stead as they progress to higher education anywhere in the world. KTJ also accepts day students, who do not board, and we have a significant number of day students from the surrounding area.

Our Primary School is now open for children aged 3 to 11. Please contact us to arrange a visit! Initially, the Primary School will not have boarding facilities. We broadly follows the UK curriculum, suitably enhanced for Malaysia. Click on ACADEMICS and PRIMARY to find out more or email registrar@ktj.edu.my
