Welcome from the Head of School
I would like to welcome you to Alice Smith and thank you for your interest in our school. We are the leading international school in Kuala Lumpur, proud of our excellent reputation in providing an outstanding and thriving all-round education based on the British curriculum for 3 to 18 year olds.
I'm often asked what makes us different to other international schools. We are of course proud of our academic achievements, with many students attaining the highest possible grades in external examinations, but there are other important aspects of Alice Smith education that we think are also important when a choosing a school.
First British international school in Malaysia
Established in 1946 by Mrs Alice Fairfield-Smith to provide expatriate children with a high quality education in Kuala Lumpur, we are the oldest British school in Malaysia and one of the oldest in SE Asia. We are proud of our history and our reputation as one of the leading international schools in the region.
Our students are at the heart of everything we do.
We are committed to academic excellence, achieved through nurturing the personal development of every student in all aspects of their learning. We understand the importance of providing a caring and supportive atmosphere in achieving this, enabling each child to thrive academically, socially, physically and emotionally.
School life at Alice Smith is a busy but happy one.
Our students have a genuine love of learning and are taught by professional fully-qualified teachers who are passionate about teaching. This exceptional combination, together with the enriching curriculum and the wider learning experiences and opportunities that happens beyond the classroom, are the foundations of our students' success and our excellent reputation.
Mission, Vision and Belief
Our mission is to provide an outstanding British Education for a successful international future.
Our vision is to lead the pursuit of excellence in learning through nurturing, inspiring and enriching the lives and characters of young people.
We believe that through generosity of time and our care and attention to every individual, we find a way to bring out the best in all people and create an enduring sense of belonging to something very special.
We invest in our students, not for profit.
Similar to most independent schools in the UK, our school is run on a ‘not for profit’ basis. We are an educational foundation and all of our revenue from school fees is used to invest in the education of our students and maintain and develop the quality of the school’s facilities and resources. We are the only British international school in Kuala Lumpur which is 'not for profit'. We have two stunning campuses, Primary and Secondary, with world-class facilities and an abundance of green, open spaces.
A sense of belonging to something special
Whether you are a student, teacher or parent, whether you are planning to be in Kuala Lumpur for two years or twenty, you will be an integral and important part of the Alice Smith School community and history and I guarantee you will feel part of something very special.
I look forward to meeting you soon.
