Tenby Schools is a rapidly expanding group of international and Malaysian private schools in Malaysia. Having started in Ipoh, there are now also Tenby Schools in Penang, Setia Eco Park in Shah Alam, Miri in Sarawak and Setia Eco Gardens in Johor Bahru.
Our vision is “A United World At Peace – Through Education” and is shared by all our schools. We are dedicated to bring together students from different cultures and nationalities and educate them to become the global citizens of the future - young people with respect for one another, confidence in themselves and the determination to become outstanding achievers.
Tenby Schools Ipoh was established in 1960 by British expatriates who wanted their children to receive high-quality education based on the British system. The school started as an expatriate kindergarten that became an international school, Tenby International School (TIS), Ipoh, which later expanded to include a private Malaysian school, Sekolah Tenby. TIS, Ipoh is also the first school in the group to offer the Cambridge International A-Level Programme since 2010, alongside the other curricula on the same campus.
Tenby Schools Penang began life as a local kindergarten and a private school, with Tenby International School (TIS), Penang being established in 2007. In 2011, the school moved into its current location, a purpose-built campus conveniently located in Tanjung Bungah. The school complex is equipped with modern facilities, supported by a strong faculty of teaching staff. The Sixth Form, offering the Cambridge International A Level Programme was introduced in the school in 2013.
Tenby Schools Setia Eco Park is the first purpose-built school in the group. Located on a 20-acre site in the award-winning Setia Eco Park development, the school offers top-class education from Early Years up to the Sixth Form. Since its establishment in 2008, Tenby Schools Setia Eco Park has become one of the most popular international/private schools in the Klang Valley. The school commenced the Cambridge International A Level Programme in 2012 for its Sixth Form.
The opening of Tenby International School (TIS), Miri marked the first time that international education became available to both expatriates and Malaysians living in Miri. Tenby Schools was selected by Sarawak Shell Berhad to start an international school in Miri to provide international school education to the community of Miri, Sarawak. TIS Miri currently offers classes from Early Years up to Secondary in its brand new campus in Desa Senadin.
The latest addition to the group, Tenby International School, Setia Eco Gardens in Johor Bahru commenced operation in January 2013, offering an international student-centred programme for Early Years, Primary and Secondary students. There are plans to introduce the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma for its Sixth Form in the near future.
