Our Leadership Team

Enabling local
and global success

Our experienced teachers and staff leaders are the bedrock of our success at Tenby Schools Setia Eco Park. 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.

Jeff Ison
Interim Campus Principal

Jeff graduated with a BA (Hons) in History in 2004. He has a passion for History as well as for working with young people, so a career in education was the natural choice.

Despite his role as an Interim Principal, Jeff will continue to teach History in the International Secondary as he always enjoys his time in the classroom with students.
