am delighted to welcome you to The International School of Penang (Uplands). As you explore our website, I have no doubt that you will be impressed with the range of opportunities that are available to all our learners – inside and outside of the classroom. We pride ourselves on the high academic achievements of its students and we aim to ensure that every student exceeds their potential.
We accepts students into our Primary and Secondary schools and encourage all type of enquires, prior to actually visiting the school. We will discuss entry into specific year groups on an individual basis during our admissions interview. Our Sixth Form accepts students into year 12 onto either the full IBDP or IB Courses. This can also be discussed at interview.
The IB Learner Profile is an important part of school life, as well as our school moto; “Respect for self – Respect for others”. The ability to communicate, think, research and reflect are further enhanced through our impressive range of activities, specialisms, expeditions and community service projects. Access to high performing sports teams, music ensembles, productions, art exhibitions and film making are all available at Uplands with further opportunities always on the horizon. Expeditions (Duke of Edinburgh Award) are common place and service opportunities are frequently on offer to our learners.
Uplands produces wonderful young adults who can make responsible and informed choices. Our students are able to face challenges and can cope with our ever-changing and challenging world. Our students are tolerant, patient and understanding towards others. They demonstrate compassion and open-mindedness.
I am extremely proud to lead Uplands and sincerely hope that I have the chance to show you around our school in the very near future.
Mr. Giles Mongare
Principal, The International School of Penang (Uplands)
