Learning Enrichment Programme

Dear Parents,
At Beaconhouse Newlands, we are dedicated to developing internationally-minded lifelong learners who value collaboration and cultural diversity, and who actively engage in learning to become compassionate and responsible global citizens. Our curriculum transcends traditional boundaries, preparing students to address global challenges effectively. Since our launch in 2011 in Lahore and subsequent expansion to Kuala Lumpur, Islamabad, and Multan, Newlands is committed to providing a challenging international education. Our students learn to be inquirers, thinkers, communicators, and risk-takers. We emphasise the development of principled, open-minded, caring, balanced, and reflective individuals who can thrive as members of the global community.
