Curriculum

Early Years
Academic subjects come alive as teachers use multiple strategies to help children discover concepts and ideas that open up the world around them.
Primary
The methodology used in the classroom is carefully designed to draw out the best from each student, both academically and personally. Teachers are committed to observing students closely to ensure that they are learning well.
Secondary
Our student-centered approach creates opportunities to draw out critical and creative thinking. Teachers work hard to instil in students that gaining knowledge is an active process that they themselves participate in. This is key to developing independence and critical-thinking skills.
Sixth Form
Students are regarded as responsible individuals and the primary stakeholder in their academic success and personal development. Small classes allow teachers more personal attention as mentors and guides to support students in their learning.

Voices of Tenby Schools Penang

I have been a Tenby student for the past 11 years. Tenby Penang has become close to a second home for me. When I was offered Sixth Form in Tenby, it seemed like a perfect combination for me; a trade off between a school I love dearly and a college life I so desired with the freedom of wearing our own clothes, leaving the school for our meals and having a separate Sixth Form lounge for the students. I was going to be part of the school I love with the extra liberties of a college student.

I started my Tenby journey in 2011 and it has been an incredible experience. Tenby has made me confident and strong. A variety of different opportunities are given for the student to grow into a role model. May it be through the student council, MUN, the production, or the variety of sports team that we have. It’s a well-knit community where everyone is free to be themselves. Students here have the full potential for academic excellence and achievement in sports and arts. Tenby’s extremely diverse and I’ve found myself being friends with people halfway around the world! Coming to school everyday is a breath of fresh air. Learning is fun here at Tenby! School trips and Horizons Week have taught me how to be an independent and responsible traveller. Without the amazing and endless opportunities at Tenby, I genuinely wouldn’t be the person I am today. Alongside the fantastic teachers and community, I am proud that I am a Tenby student!

We've been very pleased with the truly international and positive atmosphere here in Tenby. We were a little bit worried about withdrawing our three children from the world famous educational system we had in Finland. But we have found the learning environment in Tenby school Penang encouraging and perfect for them.

Parents at Tenby International School

As a parent of 3 children who, at some point have been through Tenby Schools Penang I have great regard for the school. There is a sense of community that exists amongst the children, their teachers and the parents is something that we find special here. There is nothing more joyous for a parent than to see their child wake up every morning excited about another day of learning! And the learning that happens for our children here at Tenby Penang thanks to this community is not just academic but also skills and ways to grow up to be good young adults. And it is these soft skills and strengths that prepare our children to face their future with confidence.

Alka Goh,

Our son finds the environment at Tenby to be very friendly and caring and has the opportunity to do very well in his Sixth Form studies due to the attentive and dedicated teachers, further helped by small class sizes.

Stuart,
Parent at Tenby International School

My son chose to continue with Tenby Sixth Form after his excellent results in IGCSE 2017. I am pleased that teachers work closely with the students in a good environment at school. I am happy with the learning experience which I see from day to day both academically and socially.

Madam Siti,
Parent at Tenby International School

I visited a few international schools in Penang before deciding to move my children from national school into Tenby. Tenby has culture diversity and yet with Asian values and the necessary discipline. Children are encouraged to learn in a positive environment where they are motivated to achieve their best.

Lim,
Parent at Tenby International School

As an Asian parent with international school experience myself, I feel that Tenby provides my children a good balance between exposure to international perspective and practices and respecting Asian values and traditions, which of course includes aspiration for high achievement. That's very important because schools are not just about getting the grades, it is also about moulding children into good and useful citizens.

Emi,
Parent at Tenby International School

Selecting Tenby for my child, as from our view, is due to the problem with our national education policies since independence, has gone through various acts of commission and omissions. Tenby has the comprehensive education coverage in education which meets my child’s needs.

Pauline,
Parent at Tenby International School

Before we came to Penang, we visited a few International Schools in Penang. We decided to choose Tenby International School for our children. It turned out that we selected the right school, which not only focus on their education, but also the well-being of the children. Tenby’s staff, children and parents are like one big family, that together look after each other. Well done Tenby, very proud to be part of it!!
