Empowering Changemakers at Tenby Schools Penang


At Tenby Schools Penang, students don’t just gain knowledge – they develop the skills, courage and mindset to drive positive change. As one of the leading STEAM specialist schools in Malaysia, Tenby takes a unique approach to nurturing creative problem-solvers and critical thinkers.

Sparking Curiosity and Innovation with STEAM

STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. But it goes beyond mastering academic subjects. Students learn computational thinking skills, collaborate on real-world projects, and make interdisciplinary connections. The experiential learning process sparks natural curiosity and empowers students to craft solutions.

The campus features the 75,000 square foot STEAM Engine, an inspiring learning hub equipped with state-of-the-art facilities. Students participate in ByteEd coding courses, design robots for international VEX Robotics competitions and bring ideas to life in Makerspace. Specialist spaces provide technology, materials and expert instructions.

“With the STEAM Engine, I can learn about robotics and the complex mechanisms that come with it,” shares Ravishanker, Year 11 student.

Personalised Education, Global Opportunities

Students can choose between the British International Curriculum or the Malaysian National Curriculum. This caters to different strengths while promoting international mindedness in class and on campus.

Having over 60 CCAs, student leadership initiatives and immersive virtual excursions further enrich development. As part of International Schools Partnership (ISP), students gain global exposure through the International Learning Opportunities for Students (ILOS), discovering their passions and charting their own course in programmes such as ISP Model United Nations, ISP Scientists, ISP Filmmakers and more. ISP Future Pathways and their network of 80+ schools worldwide prepare graduates for top universities.

Academic Excellence, Holistic Growth

Tenby has a strong track record of academic excellence, with 49% of 2022/23 IGCSE graduates scoring A*–A. But it’s not just about exam results. Teachers personally mentor each child, helping them uncover strengths like resilience, empathy and adaptability to thrive in an uncertain future.

Beyond Knowledge, Towards Purpose

“Amazing Learning is being able to recognise the mistakes I have made and to build from them—to expand the foundation of my knowledge wider so that I can build higher and achieve greater things,” explains Abelle, Year 8 student. “It is to embrace my errors and to face challenges boldly and with passion. In school, I am pushed beyond anything I thought I could achieve, and I could fill entire books describing the Amazing Learning that happens in the classroom every day.”

The STEAM learning approach nurtures multifaceted development – academically, socially, emotionally and as changemakers. Students gain confidence in themselves and their capacity to make an impact. They define success on their own terms.
