The acquisition is part of a greater plan for FG to expand abroad, namely in Scotland, Ireland and in England.
FG is also currently in the midst of expanding to Indonesia and China as well. The company’s director, Dr Vincent Chian said that the time is right to take this Malaysian brand abroad, due to the pent up demand for accessible high quality education provided by Fairview.
“We expand because we see a need. We currently have students from 65 nationalities studying at Fairview schools, and when our parents relocate back to their home country, they plead for us to follow them,” said Vincent Chian.

Since the launch of the WCT in 2001 by the British Department for Education and Skills for assessing and nurturing gifted youngsters, the test have become an international benchmark for Mathematics and Problem Solving. The questions in the tests are designed by professors from renowned universities in the UK, USA and Australia.
“The total cost is RM300,000 and FG will fully underwrite it,” said Vincent Chian.
