Our Leadership Team
and global success
Our experienced teachers and staff leaders are the bedrock of our success at Tenby Schools Penang. Across both Tenby International School and Sekolah Sri Tenby, they are the connection between philosophy and action, personalising our approach of Amazing Learning for the benefit of each and every child.
Teachers here know that they can make an impact far beyond the classroom. By instilling a school culture that places emphasis on independence and resilience, they play a key role in developing students with the attributes necessary to be successful in both work and life.
Jeanne has been Campus Principal at Tenby Schools Penang since 2019, prior to which she headed up Tenby Schools Miri.
Coming from a family of teachers, she understands what it means to live in an international environment. After growing up in a small village in South Africa, she relocated to the United Kingdom in 1997 as part of a role with the South African High Commission in London where she had responsibility, amongst other things, for promoting education and cultural links between South Africa and the UK. She then made the transition to teaching in 2002, continuing to do so in UK-based schools until 2013 when she made the move to Malaysia.
She believes that good learning takes place in an environment where children’s opinions matter and where they are encouraged to take risks – just one of the reasons why she is a perfect fit for our educational philosophy.
