Our Story

Tenby Schools Penang is part of the Tenby Schools group, one of the pioneers of international education in Malaysia with nearly 60 years of heritage in the country.

Our campus hosts two schools: Tenby International School, which offers Cambridge IGCSE and A Levels, and Sekolah Sri Tenby, which offers the Malaysian National curriculum. Sekolah Sri Tenby started as Sekolah Sri Pinang in 1981 and was the first private school in Penang. It later integrated with Tenby International School in 2011 and moved into its purpose-built educational facility.

Our wide range of facilities include a full sports complex, design and technology laboratories, a modern auditorium and much more, while a 6-acre green campus provides ample room for over 60 co-curricular activities , covering the spectrum of human interests – from the arts to sports, languages and even STEM activities. We are also proud to have a number of teams and individuals representing our schools at state and even national level.

We are proud to boast a truly international and cosmopolitan atmosphere, where 33 different nationalities learn together in a state-of-the-art campus which sits within the suburb of Tanjung Bungah. Here, we place a strong emphasis on providing students with global perspectives and experiences, and encourage students to participate in activities such as The Duke Of Edinburgh’s International Award, Model United Nations, international trips and more.

We want our students to be critical learners and to take ownership of their own learning. Accordingly, we strive to provide every opportunity for them to meet and exceed their potential in all areas, and our philosophy of Amazing Learning is equipping them for local and global success.

This approach has resulted in outstanding student results in both the National and International sections of the school. In the 2018/19 IGCSE examinations, students in  English, Maths and Science achieved 93% A*-C grades, while our A Level students maintain our outstanding pass rate at 98% and pursue their first choice of degree at some of the top universities around the world. Our results at IGCSE and A Level in the majority of subjects exceed the Cambridge world averages. As such, most of our students go on to study in top universities of their choice across the world.

All this has helped us build a reputation as one of the best value schools in the area.
