The Beaconhouse School System opened its first school in Southeast Asia in 2004. Today, Beaconhouse has a sizeable student body in Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines.
Beaconhouse owns and operates 13 schools in Malaysia, all of them in or around Kuala Lumpur. Of these, eight are Pre-schools, three (Sri Inai, Sri Lethia and Sri Murni) are Primary and Secondary schools and two (Sri Inai International and Beaconhouse-Newlands, Kuala Lumpur) are international schools. Sri Inai was a major acquisition that put Beaconhouse on the educational landscape of Malaysia.
Beaconhouse-Newlands, Kuala Lumpur opened in September 2012 on the same site as Sri Murni. It provides students with a learning experience where technology blends seamlessly into a modern broad-based curriculum. Real-time interaction between students of Beaconhouse-Newlands, Kuala Lumpur and Newlands, UK, enables them to participate in projects that stem from mutual interests and address global issues.
Beaconhouse operates three schools in the Philippines. In 2006, Beaconhouse acquired Theresiana de Montealegre School (TMS) in Manila, Philippines. Apart from a sizable enrolment of local students, TMS also enrols Korean students whose families send them to Manila to learn English and Mandarin. The second school, St Paul Learning Centre (SPLC), is located in Cebu City, the second largest city in the Philippines. Acquired by Beaconhouse in 2008, SPLC offers an English curriculum and Mandarin as a subject. In early 2012, Beaconhouse entered into a partnership for a third school with Angels in Heaven School (AHS) in Cebuyao, Laguna, south of Manila. Housed at two campuses, the school offers Kindergarten, elementary and high school level education.
In Thailand, Beaconhouse and the Yamsaard Group, jointly own four schools. The agreement to acquire Yamsaard schools was signed in 2014. The schools are co-branded as Beaconhouse Yamsaard schools. Yamsaard is expected to augment Beaconhouse`s efforts to continue providing quality education of an international standard. Yamsaard was founded in 1984 with a simple Kindergarten in Bangkok, Thailand. It now has over 3000 students enrolled in three campuses. Yamsaard employs Project-Based Learning and offers opportunities for participation in many special activities to its students.
