The International School of Penang (Uplands) was founded in 1955 as a preparatory boarding school for the children of planters in Malaya (now Malaysia). In 1976 the school moved to its present site and as an all-age international school. It is a non-profit making educational trust. The schooling incorporates the normal UK curriculum and offers a wide range of subjects for the Cambridge IGCSE. German, French, Japanese, Mandarin and Malay are offered as second languages and there is a strong ESL programme for pupils for whom English is not their first language. The maximum class size is 25. All staff are experienced and qualified with university degrees and/or teaching certificates. Over one-half are expatriate teachers - mostly with previous international experience. A Special Educational Needs Department caters for children with mild learning disabilities. Uplands has recently been jointly accredited by the European Council of International Schools and NEASC.
