GEMS International School Pearl City, Penang

This international school in Penang is part of a heritage that spans six decades. It is part of a global network of 88 schools across 13 countries. The school wants students to develop an appreciation of their culture, their home and host country. Combining 55 years of experience as international educators together with Malaysian elements, they have created an “enriched curriculum”. Following the National Curriculum for England and Wales, the school hopes to open doors for their students through this highly recognised and international curriculum.

Conveniently located in the growing residential community of Simpang Ampat, Penang, the learning environment is carefully crafted to suit every stage of a child’s development. All schools in the group are accredited and/or affiliated to internationally acclaimed education organisations, such as the Cambridge International Examinations.

The campus is equipped with first-rate facilities which includes two football fields, a fully equipped multi-purpose hall, a primary sports hall, two swimming pools, specialist classrooms including science labs, a dance studio, a black box theatre and various shared learning spaces – indoors and outdoors. With a large range of enrichment activities including sports, performing arts, culture, science and technology, students are supported by a stimulating and supportive learning environment, but there is also the opportunity to choose and pursue numerous after school activities (extracurricular), ranging from chess to fencing.
