SVP Head of School Search


CLOSING DATE: 28th Feb 2018

About the School

Sekolah Victory Plus is a fully authorised International Baccalaureate PYP, MYP and DP school of 930 students and 140 teaching staff. We are 20 years old and located in Kemang Pratama, Bekasi. We are an accredited ANPS school and are listed as an A ranked Indonesian school. Approximately 90% of our student body is Indonesian, but nearly all are fluent in English and Bahasa Indonesia. Our Indonesian staff, parents and students are very friendly, willing to learn and always want to help.

The location

Greater Jakarta is a wonderfully complicated city, you either hate it or you love it! Our location of Kemang Pratama, Bekasi is actually slightly outside of Jakarta in a leafy, well-to-do neighbourhood, but with Jakarta just at your doorstep. Bekasi has many malls, restaurants, and shopping centres, so you need never go into the centre of Jakarta if you do not want to. Many staff take advantage of weekend trips to Bali, but there is a range of other places to visit in Indonesia; you can dive, climb volcanos, surf or volunteer at an Orangutan centre.

We are a caring and responsible community of lifelong learners, global citizens and entrepreneurs.

When geopolitics interferes with our school plans


, , ,


The recent Qatar crisis in which 7 middle eastern neighbouring counties have closed their borders with Qatar has an immediate effect on us here at Sekolah Victory Plus. One of our expats who is in English right now was due to fly here on Qatar Air via Doha… that flight has been canceled. And of course, since it is close to the holiday period of Lebaran all the other flights are close to booked and very expensive.

But even more challenging is one of our other new expats, a British National, is currently living and working in Qatar, fortunately, he had not purchased his ticket yet and currently looking to see what ticket he can buy to Jakarta. Of course, if the crisis gets any worse he may end up trapped in Qatar (we hope not)
