Tenby International School Miri provides a quality international education for local and expatriate families living in Miri, Sarawak, Borneo. From January 2013 we have also been approved by the Ministry of Education of the Netherlands as an official Dutch school.
We offer a student-centred programme for students from Early Years to Secondary (ages 3 to 18), with the primary and secondary schools operating on the same campus.
Our Primary students follow a curriculum based on several broad areas of study:
The IPC is taught in English and is based on the latest approaches to teaching and learning. It follows a child-centred thematic approach with rigorous assessment ensuring that each child attains the highest possible standard. This integrated curriculum includes study of the humanities, science, ICT, art, music and PE and reinforces learning in the literacy and numeracy programmes.
Numeracy and Literacy are based on the English National Curriculum through daily literacy and numeracy lessons. A support programme is available for children who initially require additional tuition to develop their English language, based on individual needs as determined by the school. We place a strong emphasis on our students’ ability to achieve high standards in both Literacy and Mathematics.
External assessment at the end of Year 6 is administered by Cambridge International Examinations (CIE). Contact us for more information on our primary programmes.
Our Lower Secondary programme is based on the English National Curriculum, modified for international students. Students study the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science, Information Communication Technology (ICT) and PE together with Geography, History, Design-Technology, Music, Drama, PE, Art and additional Languages (Chinese, Dutch, French, Malay are available; note that all Malaysian students are required to study Malay).
External assessment at the end of Year 9 is administered by Cambridge International Examinations (CIE). Contact us for more information on our middle school programmes.
In Years 10 and 11, students continue with the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science, Information Communication Technology (ICT) and PE, and choose a range of subjects from the Languages, Humanities and Social Sciences.
External assessment at the end of Year 11, or IGCSE, is administered by Cambridge International Examinations (CIE). The International General Certificate of Secondary Education is an internationally renowned and recognised qualification for further education.

Co-curricular activities play an important role in the life of the school and in ensuring an all-round holistic education for your child, and all students are expected to participate. The range of activities offered depends on the skills and interests of both school staff and students, but includes activities within the expressive arts, sports and team building activities.
