A Rich History of Academic Excellence

Named after the first Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haji, Tunku Putra School was set up by Cahya Mata Sarawak Berhad (CMSB) in 1996 as the first international school in Sarawak. 20 years later, the School has grown to over 600 students, represented by 20 nationalities.

In March 2018, CMSB collaborated with the HELP Education Group and Ibraco Berhad, to embark on an exciting journey in educational growth by establishing the Tunku Putra-HELP in Kuching. Located strategically in the NorthBank,Tabuan Jaya, the residential heart of Kuching, the school’s new purpose-built campus can accommodate up to 1,500 students.
