Voices of Tenby Schools Ipoh
My personal and professional experiences of working in Tenby Schools Ipoh have equipped me with the initiative, passion, competency, and commitment. This has enabled me to develop a wide range of practical skills. I am able to manage challenging behaviour effectively, conduct activities safely and communicate with people from diverse backgrounds. Further, I am very creative and enjoy conducting experiments and simple activities that make learning interesting. Most importantly, my ability to work well with others, motivate and inspire is a very significant contribution in Tenby Schools Ipoh.
I am proud to be part of the Tenby Community. Tenby students are eager to learn and show motivation to excel academically and in extracurricular activities. With a wide range of CCA, students are able to unleash their potential and develop leadership skills through active participation in different society. Extracurricular activities are just as important as academics. They both complement each other to develop a well-rounded student with ‘real world’ skills such as time management, teamwork, public speaking, analytical thinking and social skills.
Strive to do your best. Be persistent, work hard and remember to persevere on all your tasks and work. Have a grounded faith in yourself, your teachers and the school and you will achieve more than what you set out to do.
I have felt truly welcome as the new Head of Sixth Form at Tenby Ipoh. The students exude a sense of community and a love for their school that I hope to continue to foster over the coming years. I look forward to working hard with and for our young people to ensure that they go out into the world prepared to contribute wherever they may be as effective global citizens and leaders of tomorrow.
Physical education starts first thing in the morning; wake up, listen to your body, test yourself, know your limits, don’t run fast but run long, keep moving, sometimes you have to lose something to win, teaching by learning, kids learn from experiences, adults learn from books, let them run, let them fall, let them get hurt, the result does matter but how the kids handle the result is most important.
It is a privilege to be part of an educational establishment which believes that every day is an opportunity to work towards the creation of a school where students, staff and parents are beating down the doors to get in … not out.
When I was doing my PGCE in the UK almost 2 decades ago, I learned the 4 Gs & stages that makes a great lesson: Get them in; Get them on; Get on with them & Get them out! When I joined Tenby 3 years ago, I experienced the 4Gs of a great school: Great environment; Great students; Great staff; Great future!
It is a great pleasure to be the Campus Principal at Tenby Schools Ipoh, our community is a truly learning focused one where everyone works hard at getting better in all that they do. As well as achieving outstanding academic results year on year, and accomplishing amazing feats in Sports and the Arts, our students leave us having developed 21st Century skills; critical problem solving, collaboration, communication and creativity that prepare them for the challenges ahead. Our students are both inspired to learn and empowered to excel during their time at Tenby, and I am very proud of each and every one of them.
I was very impressed with the Annual Buddy Exchange Programme that Tenby Schools Ipoh participates as part of the International Schools Partnership. My son went to Spain for 3 weeks and the experience he gained from it was priceless. As parents, we also hosted an exchange student (Alejandro) from Spain and had a great time showing off our country to him. It was great to see both my son and Alejandro embrace each other’s differences with respect and tolerance. We believe that Tenby Schools Ipoh lays an excellent and unique platform for international and cultural learning not just for students but for their families as well, besides fostering new friendships across the world.
Meet Our Alumni
Having spent almost 13 years in Tenby Schools Ipoh, from primary school education all the way to the A Levels programme, my experiences there have played a huge part in my personal growth and development. Good teaching quality and small class sizes helped me excel academically. In particular, the Mathematics and Physics subjects in A Levels provided me a strong foundation to pursue an engineering degree, and the knowledge still serves me well in my current endeavours.
My memories of Tenby date back to when I began my CIE A-Levels as a SiWu scholar in Cohort 10 – the largest cohort at the time. The A-Levels programme is well known for its rigorousness and it would sometimes feel a bit daunting. Fortunately, all my teachers were extremely supportive of the progress I made and were always willing to go the extra mile to explain a concept until I thoroughly understood it. As a result, my confidence soared and I relished all my lessons. I finished my A2 examinations in November 2015, obtaining excellent results for my CIE A-Levels. This is a testament to the dedication and sacrifice of my teachers and for this I cannot thank them enough.
