Welcome to Tenby Schools Setia Eco Gardens!
Thank you for taking the time to find out more about our school. Tenby Schools Setia Eco Gardens is unique as it offers both the British International and Malaysian National syllabus. We started as Tenby International School in 2013, catering to Early Years, Primary and Secondary-aged students. Then, in January 2015, we started Sekolah Sri Tenby, which offers the Malaysian National curriculum delivered in a cosmopolitan environment.
Our dual-stream campus provides a unique school environment that lets students get the best of both worlds, with an internationally-minded approach that combines rigorous intellectual endeavour with a broad range of co-curricular activities to provide students with experiences that go beyond the academic.
HERITAGE OF EXCELLENCE
As part of the Tenby Schools group, Tenby Schools Setia Eco Gardens has a strong reputation for excellence in education. Students gain the advantage of the group’s 60-year heritage in moulding young minds, as well as the best of evidence-based pedagogy. We deliver an effective methodology that facilitates all-rounded character development.
Tenby Schools is also one of the largest groups of private international schools in South-East Asia, with seven purpose-built campuses throughout Malaysia. Additionally, we are part of the International Schools Partnership (ISP), a growing network of international schools around the world. Tenby Schools benefits from ISP’s international expertise in learning that has a tangible positive impact on children – both in terms of academic achievement and personal development.
Our emphasis is on the holistic development of confident and responsible global citizens. Our approach balances strong academic and pastoral expectations, which encourages students of all ages to develop a reflective, independent approach to life and learning.
Therefore, our dedicated staff and faculty actively seek opportunities to push our students to grow beyond their current level of capabilities. Your child will be encouraged to explore all levels of learning through our broad curriculum and wide range of co-curricular activities. There will be many opportunities for students to learn a wide range of knowledge and practical skills, thus acquiring personal qualities that serve them well as adults.
INTERNATIONAL LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
We are a highly diverse community, with our student and faculty population comprising various nationalities and cultures. Our faculty is a mixture of Malaysian and international teachers, giving students a range of local and global perspectives.
Our aim is to educate our students to become global citizens who are able to show genuine respect for others, celebrate diversity and communicate effectively with a broad variety of people. Students are also encouraged to take up leadership opportunities and be involved in charity events and fundraising. In this way, they gain confidence and develop excellence of character while developing their minds at the same time.
We especially want to inspire children students to learn to levels that amaze them. Those moments where students can say “I didn’t realise I could do that until now!” are what we call Amazing Learning moments. When we help them amaze themselves enough times, students develop perseverance and confidence that become a firm foundation for success.
We are committed to being a school that facilitates students in this journey to becoming better versions of themselves. This is because we believe that a person of excellent character will bring about excellence to all they do.
If you are looking for a modern, dynamic and rigorous school for your child, please arrange a visit to Tenby Schools Setia Eco Gardens. You will then have the opportunity to see and experience what your child will gain here. I look forward to welcoming you.
