Jangsak and Kg. Mata-Mata area. It runs on Brunei’s SPN 21 Education System supplemented with a strong extra-curricular and co-curricular programmes for all students. All students are expected to give their best in their learning to achieve academic excellence. In addition, students are expected to participate actively in extra-curricular activities, athletic events as well as in creative and performing arts. We also encourage our students to participate in learning activities that promote leadership, self-esteem and good moral character. Our students thrive in a community of free inquiry and intellectual exploration. WIth these tools, we believe  they can excel in the future.

Admission is granted upon the completion of all requirements with the understanding that the student and the parents agree to comply with the academic standards of the school and its set rules and regulations.

Places are allocated to successful applicants, with a required PASS grade in the entrance examination grade. However, application for admissions are welcomed throughout the year provided slots are available in the preferred year level. Our school year starts in January and ends November.

The School reserves the right to refuse admission to any person of questionable character in due consideration for the majority.
