Mr Duncan Grice

Executive Principal's Message


It is my pleasure to welcome you to Sri KDU International School Kota Damansara.
 
At the centre of our school are our students with their own needs, dreams, successes and challenges. We believe in the traditional values of good manners and respectful behaviour to develop in our students a sense of inner decency, honesty and integrity. These are life skills of the utmost importance.
 
At Kota Damansara our students always come first. The school offers a friendly, personal, caring and student-centred learning environment where your child will be known, and their learning tailored to maximise their development. Our aim is to provide a level of academic challenge, which will enable each student to realise their potential, while ensuring that they are happy, confident and enthusiastic learners.
 
Teachers and parents play key roles in this development and the partnership between them is of paramount importance. We will always be there hand in hand with your child as they progress along their learning journey to adulthood.
 
Our emphasis is on learning and how students learn, rather than just content, and we place a great deal of importance on our students’ ability to work collectively, as well as independently, in developing their thinking to challenge and be challenged. We place equal importance on children’s intellectual, personal and social development.
 
We concentrate on our five promises to families to meet our vision of Building Future Leaders:
  1. Continuous Improvement
  2. Top Academic Outcomes
  3. Future Proof Preparation
  4. Holistic Development
  5. Welfare and Safeguarding
We aspire to excellence in everything that we do, this is evident in our extremely high examination results. We recently received external re-accreditation of our school on being awarded the Gold Award for the International School Quality Mark (ISQM). We achieved the highest level of the award: given to the school by the Education Development Trust who confer this prestigious award to international schools in the UK and around the world. We were the first international school in Malaysia to receive the gold accolade.
 
Our website shows you the wonderful facilities at our Kota Damansara campus, however, schools are not about buildings, they are about people. It is the quality of the people, the teaching and the support staff, which makes a school special. At Kota Damansara, we have committed and friendly professionals who bring a depth of international knowledge with them.
 
We are proud to be a part of XCL Education who aspire to be a trusted and respected future-focused family of schools, fostering curiosity, excellence and creating life-shaping impact on our students, staff, and communities we serve.
 
I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you directly, our doors are always open.
