We understand that these years can be a challenging period for a child's emotional, intellectual and social development. The National Curriculum for England (UK), appropriately modified for international students, guides and engages students through an innovative learning programme.
Tenby International School Secondary is split into three key stages: Key Stage 3 (11 - 14 years old), Key Stage 4 (14 - 16 years old) and Key Stage 5 (16 - 18 years old). Here we provide a balanced education within a positive and stimulating environment, where students feel valued and can grow to their full potential.
At Key Stage 3 students are taught Bahasa Malaysia (Language/Culture),Chinese or French, DesignTechnology, English (First Language), Geography, History, lnformation & Communication Technology (ICl), Mathematics, Physical and Health Studies (PHS), Personal and Social Education (PSE - includes Moral Education requirement for Malaysian students),Science,Visual and Performing Arts (Art, Drama, Music) and Agama (offered to all Muslim students across Tenby).
At Key Stage 4 this narrows down and allows students to study a range of subjects including the core of Mathematics, English Literature and Language, at least one Science and one Language. Students are able to choose additional preferred courses, with a variety of subjects on offer, including Business Studies and Physical Education. As an integral part of the Key Stage 4 curriculum, our Personal and Social Education (PSE) programme is comprehensive and compulsory. It seeks to develop the student's awareness of life skills and their role in the various communities they inhabit, be it on family, school, national or international levels. The changing face of the world,with regards to history, politics, the environment and the role of young people, is at the forefront of what our students study. Our goal is to give our pupils the confidence and knowledge required to adapt to the demands of a rapidly changing region.
We use the leading internationally renowned and recognised qualification, the Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examinations.
We have a team of expert teachers and subject specialists who have continued with their own learning journey and consistently develop, practise and push educational boundaries.
