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 the following 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.

The Reach for the Stars scholarships are partial scholarships covering up to 50% of fees, and are awarded on the basis of excellent academic attainment or talent in, for example the arts or sports. Interested scholars will need to show strong academic performance and be an outstanding model student. This scholarship is awarded to external students prior to both (I)GCSE and A Level programmes. 

The A Level Reach for the Stars Scholarship is issued to students applying for either: 

  • late entry 18-month A Level programme (January 2021 intake - likely to be students completing (I)GCSE or equivalent in December)
  • 2-year A Level Programme (August 2021 intake - likely to be currently (I)GCSE students)

The (I)GCSE Reach for the Stars Scholarship is issued to students applying for: 

  • 2-year (I)GCSE Programme (January 2021 or August 2021 intake)

All textbooks and materials, external examination fees, and curriculum-based visits are also covered within the scholarship. Food and optional school visits, however, are not included. Additional payments will be required for extracurricular activities not covered in the normal range offered by school, or for surplus on trips.
