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 Malay Girls Secondary School . 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 the LCE/SRP examination.
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 Srikandi Woman of the Malacca sultanate. 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.
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.
The uniform bodies that are present in the school is Marching Band and Wind Orchestra (STF Band), Malaysian Red Crescent Society (PBSM), National Police Cadet (Malaysia), Malaysian Fire Brigade Cadet, Persatuan Puteri Islam (PPI), Kadet Remaja Sekolah Malaysia(KRS), Persatuan Pandu Puteri Malaysia - Renjer (upper form) and Remaja (lower form).
There are three niche areas in STF. They are hockey, basketball, and band. The school band is named "STF BAND", while the hockey team is "STRIDERS" and the school basketball team is called "DYNAMITES".
