    Principal

    Mr Carl Mincher

    I'm the Principal at the British International School of Kuala Lumpur, a post I've held since 2020, and I continue to be impressed by the high calibre students, teachers, and staff here. I started my career as a teacher of Physics in Cheshire England. I taught in a number of UK schools holding several leadership positions including Head of Science, Head of Sixth Form and Deputy Headteacher. I was awarded the National Professional Qualification for Headteachers in 2007. After 28 years in the UK I began my international education career at the British International School in Ho Chi Minh City as Head of Secondary in 2015.

  • Tom

    Mr Thomas Kimber

    Deputy Head of Primary (Teaching, Learning & Assessments)

    Mr Thomas Kimber

    Thomas is passionate about being active and enjoying physical activity. Whether it be competitive sports like football or just hobbies like walking, he loves to keep busy with exercise. He is also very keen on using creativity to make or create 'things'- sometimes functional, like furniture; sometimes for his own personal interest, like science experiments. He gains a great deal of satisfaction from the process of making something (even if the end result is wildly different from what he had originally envisaged!)
