At all Tenby Schools, we apply a holistic, evidence-based philosophy designed to build the character of students and empower lifelong, independent learning. With our extensive experience in providing international quality education, our educators are able to challenge students on a personal, individualised basis, enabling exposure to repeated experiences that push students towards true breakthroughs in learning.
Established in 1960, we are the first school established in the Tenby Schools group. Since then, we have had a long and storied history of constant improvement, both physically and academically, which has sealed our reputation as one of the premier educational institutions in Ipoh. Today, we sit on our own purpose-built campus at the foot of the rolling green hills at Bandar Meru Raya. Within this tranquil environment, more than 1,000 students enjoy top-class facilities in an expansive campus that supports over 100 co-curricular activities.
We are extremely proud of our students‘ consistent high achievements when it comes to academic results. This excellence can be seen across both the International (Tenby International School) and Private National (Sekolah Tenby) schools.
Over the years, Sekolah Tenby Ipoh has consistently ranked among the top three schools in Northern Kinta district for the UPSR, PT3 & SPM examinations. Tenby International School Ipoh students have also consistently been ranked “Top in Malaysia“ or “Top in the World“ for its IGCSE results each year.
We believe that our academic success is due to an ideal blend of local and international educators and approaches. Whether your child studies the International or Malaysian National curriculum, he or she will benefit from an international approach to school life that blends academic focus with a wide variety of pastoral and after-school activities to promote rounded development.
As part of the International Schools Partnership (ISP), we benefit from the wisdom, research and rich educational experience of a group with over 50 schools in 15 countries worldwide.
In everything we do, we aim to bring to life moments of Amazing Learning.
Amazing Learning is all about going beyond the level a student thinks possible, and it happens when children are provided opportunities for “good struggle”, where they are exposed to repeated experiences that develop character in perseverance and learning.
We believe that with struggle comes the opportunity to experience breakthroughs. Ultimately, we want children to surprise themselves (and their teachers and parents), so that they can say, “I didn’t realise I could do that until now!”
