Our students and teachers share a love of learning and thrive from their positive and enriching experience with us. Charlotte Moore, Head of Media for the secondary campus shares her views 

“As a family we are delighted to have made the move to Alice Smith and to be part of the vibrant community in KL. We are very grateful to all of the people at Alice Smith who have made our transition from the Middle East to South-East Asia, via the UK, so much easier. People often ask me why we made the move across the globe to live and work in KL. For me, the answer is quite simple: the ethos at Alice Smith matches exactly what I would want for my own children and for the students that I have taught, or am yet to teach. Giving each child the best possible experience and encouraging them to make each day count means so much. Whether that is in the classroom, or by giving students experiences that allow them to develop their own character and build relationships that are built on mutual respect and trust and celebrating difference whilst we embrace diversity. Just like I don't believe there is only one winner, I also don't believe in an academic hierarchy where some subjects are more worthy than others. Alice Smith supports students to walk a path of equal opportunity with enthusiasm, pride and an open-mind. I am looking forward to this next adventure.”

The school is a founding member of the Federation of British International Schools in Asia (FOBISIA) and a long standing member of the Council of British International Schools (COBIS).  Alice Smith was accredited as a British School Overseas with an Excellent grading in both 2011 and 2014 and in March 2019, received an outstanding COBIS Patron’s Accreditation and Compliance Report.  

The School is accommodated on two sites approximately 20 minutes apart, both campuses having exceptional resources and facilities. As an innovative user of technology, Alice Smith is a Google Apps for Education school working across both Windows and Mac platforms, utilising the power of Google sites and Google Classroom to provide tailored learning opportunities for our students.
