Sekolah Sri Tenby opened its doors to the first batch of students on the 5th January 2009. By the year 2010, we have classes from Std 1 till Form 5. Our tagline is ‘Nurturing Students With A Personal Touch’.
The school aims to give students the skills, knowledge and personal qualities to confidently face the challenges of a rapidly changing world. Students are encouraged to multi-task and to take on new challenges on a day-to-day basis in order to foster self-discipline, encourage independent learning and develop personal and social skills. They are given practical life skills that will stand them in good stead wherever their next destination in life may be beyond academia.
Sekolah Sri Tenby follows the Malaysian curriculum but uses an international approach to learning. We employ an integrated and thematic approach to learning and acquiring knowledge. Students also learn music, fine arts, sports and participate in a wide range of co-curricular activities so as to gain a holistic learning experience.
The table above shows the introduction of the new Malaysian Curriculum for KSSR in 2011 with Std 1 and KSSM in 2012 with Form 1.
Science & Mathematics are taught in English from Std 4 onwards till Form 5.
For Std 1-3, with the introduction of KSSR, teaching of Science & Mathematics is done bilingually i.e.
for Mathematics (7periods/week): 4 /5 periods (Bahasa) and 3/2 periods (English)
The RIC Activity Books in English are compiled from Australian published books by our Group Teachers for teaching Mathematics Std 1-3 and for Science Std 1-3.
For Secondary, these two subjects continue to be taught in English from Form 1 to 5.
For Sciences, the practical assessments for each examination are listed below:-
Approaches to the teaching & learning of Science are Interactive through Scientific Investigation to stimulate application of concepts learned in a new environment. Precise and appropriate terms or keywords and correct units are stressed daily for students to present ideas in the correct context.
For Mathematics, the approach is through fun activities which guide students to think creatively out of the box to solve problems.
Where ever necessary and related for both Science & Mathematics, children will be brought outside the borders of the classroom to do experiential learning.
Innovation Studio can lift Science and Mathematics from the pages of a textbook and bring them to life.
The Studio provides a unique ’hands-on’, minds-on ’environment that supports and enriches the entire learning process. It’s a focus point for innovation and creativity in schools and facilitate core subject teaching as well as 21st century skills such as critical thinking and collaboration. Teachers deliver projects and subject-specific lessons centred on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)

In Sekolah Sri Tenby, we nurture children with a personal touch. During the homeroom periods, homeroom teachers interact with the children to touch on good practices, good values, positive disciplines and life skills. We offer pastoral care to see to their needs in school towards effective active learning and development of soft skills. Our students are given opportunities to maximise their potential with the guidance of their teachers. We aim to produce independent learners who are able to excel in the changing world. Sekolah Sri Tenby is a unique school which provides the ideal integrated international environment for our children to interact with their peers.
Students are given the exposure to the independent learners and be able to compete on a world stage.
