Admission Process

At Tenby Schools Setia Eco Park, we believe that a child’s attitude towards learning is far more important than aptitude in a specific language or subject area. Therefore, we consider for admission any student who is at least three years old (Early Years) and not older than eighteen years old (for Year 12) on September 1st (for Tenby International School) or January 1st (for Sekolah Sri Tenby) of any academic year.

We strive to be transparent with parents at each stage of the admissions process, and consider all applications on an individual basis, keeping in mind circumstances surrounding each child.

Below is a summary of the admissions process:

Step 1

Enquire Now

To start the process, complete this short enquiry form. You will need to specify your name, email address, school stream and admission date you are enquiring for. A member of our admissions team will be in touch soon.

Step 2

Book a Visit

Quality education is a two-way process, and it is important for you to feel that Tenby Schools is the right fit for your child’s education. Once we have received your enquiry, we will arrange for a school visit where you can see Tenby in action.

If there is a specific area of the school you would like to see during your visit, let us know beforehand and we will do our best to accommodate.

Step 3

Should you be satisfied and ready to move forward, we invite you to submit an official application via our Tenby Schools application form.

After your full and completed application is received, a date will be scheduled for your child to undergo the GL Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT4), which is a standard means of assessing a student’s ability to reason with and manipulate different types of material through a series of verbal, non-verbal, quantitative and spatial ability tasks. For more information on the assessment, please see our group Admissions Policy below.

There are three possible outcomes to the assessment:

Successful
A place is offered at the school, and a Letter of Offer is issued. You may choose to accept or decline the offer.

You will be notified within ten days to allow for alternative arrangements to be made. You may reapply the following year.

If your application is successful, a non-refundable Registration Fee (RM4000 for TIS, RM1500 for SST) will be required within the offer deadline. All fee payments such as deposit, term fee, ICT fee and meal plan (if applicable) must be made before the start date of school. Below is our latest fee schedule for 2019/20:
