About XCL International School

GEMS International School, Pearl City Penang is a school that always put its pupils first focusing on their academic and holistic learning as well as their personal development. Being a GEMS school, we are provided with continuous support from one of the world’s most respected educational groups.

Our school vision is:

“To be a school where every child can thrive and meet with success”

To this effect, GIP offers a friendly, intimate and child-centred learning environment. Children are placed at the very centre of the learning process and receive a broad and balanced education where we firmly believe that learning should be fun.

Bringing out the best in our children is our constant aim. This means developing and nurturing a successful blend of creativity, confidence and courtesy which will equip our young people to cope with the demands of life, wherever they may live in the world.

Creating Outstanding Members of the Community

GIP is about people; the well-being, development and contentment of our entire community. Pupil’s opinions are valued. We genuinely listen to them individually and collectively through student councils, environment councils and through our House system which covers charities, sport, fund-raising and many other activities the pupils wish to engage in.

We believe it is important for our pupils to have a firm commitment to deep rooted values, and to be flexible, pragmatic and open to new ideas. We aim to build self-confidence, self-discipline, communication and leadership skills in our pupils who emerge as articulate young adults ready to contribute widely to the global community.
