Sekolah Tun Fatimah (English: Tun Fatimah School; abbreviated STF) is a premier all-girl[1] boarding school(Sekolah Berasrama Penuh) located in Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia. The students in the school are nicknamed the name STFians.[2] In 2010, the school was awarded with the Sekolah Berprestasi Tinggi or High Performance School[3] title, a title awarded to the 20 schools in Malaysia that have met stringent criteria including academic achievement, strength of alumni, international recognition, network and linkages. The school is specialised in hockey, band as well as basketball [4] STF has been known for producing high-resistant yet poised young ladies throughout Malaysia.[5] The school is a member of Strategic Educational Alliance of Southeast Asia.


Sekolah Tun Fatimah is a Sekolah Berasrama Penuh [SBP], which is administered by the Ministry of Education, special for girls. The students are selected and managed by the Ministry of Education from around the country who achieved excellent results in the UPSR (Primary School Assessment Test) and PMR (Lower Secondary Assessment).

Sekolah Tun Fatimah, was founded in Durian Daun, Malacca in 1956 with the name Secondary School Malay Girls.[citation needed] The goal is to educate students, especially Malay girls from rural areas of the whole Malaya to become teachers by sending them directly to the Malacca Malay Women Teachers Training College (MWTC) after examination LCE / SRP.

In 1958, it was officially launched by YB Encik Khir bin Johari, the Minister of Education of Malaya at that time and given the name "Tun Fatimah School, named after a famous Malay Women Srikandi at the time of the Malacca sultanate.[6] Sekolah Tun Fatimah, has moved to current premises in August 1962. On 25 September 1965, STF was officially opened by HRH Sultanah Johor, Tunku Ungku Tun Aminah Ahmad.[citation needed]


STF have a long held rivalry with two other all-girls premier boarding schools, Kolej Tunku Kurshiah and Sekolah Seri Puteri. However, the rivalry may be seen as a love-hate relationship. The students are rivals in many ways (debate, sports, studies, band etc.) but at other times, they can be the closest of friends. The love-hate relationship has been obvious throughout generations for the three schools.
