An Opportunity in Malaysia Awaits You

The TENBY SCHOOLS GROUP operates international and private schools in Malaysia; currently in Shah Alam, Penang, Ipoh, Johor Bahru and Miri. Each campus provides for both primary and secondary international schools. The campuses in Ipoh, Penang, Shah Alam and Johor Bahru also provide for private schools following the Malaysian curriculum.

Due to expansion, applications are invited for the position of Head of Schools  for our new school located in Setia Ecohill, Semenyih, Selangor (near to Kuala Lumpur), Malaysia – a new housing development area with environmentally-friendly infrastructure and green design concepts to ensure that the township can be sustainable for the long term. As part of the wider family of Tenby Schools Malaysia, Tenby Setia EcoHill will be a very special place for learning. We are building a very high calibre leadership team across the group so we seek a strong academic leader to join that team.

Our approach is individual – we strive for every student to stretch themselves beyond their potential and in doing so we reflect our vision of ‘A United World At Peace - Through Education’.

The Role

As a leader in a new school it’s a great opportunity to make a mark and contribute to the creation of a great school. The Principal and Heads of School together with the Bursar form the senior leadership team of the campus.
