Alice Smith School
Alice Smith School


The Alice Smith School has been serving the community of Kuala Lumpur since 1946, and throughout that time has prided itself on providing outstanding academic rigour accompanied by an impactful holistic education. With over 40 nationalities, we understand and celebrate the diversity of our community which enriches the lives of us all.

As a not-for-profit school from the very beginning, we recognise the importance of reinvesting every ringgit of school fees into student learning which remains at the very heart of what we do. To echo and reinforce our commitment to our local community, we offer scholarship programmes which allow students to excel, thereby giving them access to the best universities in the world. In this way, we hope that all our students reach for the stars.

Our Year 10 and Year 12 Reach for the Stars Scholarships for the academic year 2024-2025 are now closed. 

Kindly refer to the respective links below for further details on the types of scholarships. 

KLASS Honour Roll (for existing Alice Smith students only)

From 2024-2025 awards will be made using a KLASS Honour Roll system and awarded after the announcement of the (I)GCSE results.

Our KLASS Honour Roll will recognise the academic accomplishments of our 10 highest attaining (I)GCSE students who will be entered into the KLASS Honour Roll based on their final summer results. 

Those awarded places on the KLASS Honour roll will receive a 25% academic scholarship on their tuition fees for Years 12 and 13.

We will continue to award 1x scholarship for Arts and 1x scholarship for Sports in recognition of the value that the Arts and Sport bring to our students and their holistic education. These two scholarships will sit outside of the Honour roll; they will be awarded by the Head of Faculty for CE Arts and the Director of Sport . Recipients of these awards will receive a 25% scholarship on their tuition fees for Years 12 and 13.
