Every student’s experiential learning is enhanced by interesting and challenging activities and expeditions beyond the classroom.
We ensure we make the most of the plentiful cultural, social and environmental experiences on offer in Kuala Lumpur, throughout Asia and beyond. Check out our Trip Map to see where we've been recently.
At the Primary Campus trips are run throughout the year across all year groups and predominantly reinforce the learning in the classroom. In Years 4, 5 and 6, in addition to the academic benefits, residential trips within Malaysia also encourage independence, develop personal skills and help students work as a team.
At the Secondary Campus, wider learning continues to encourage young people to develop resilience, independence and team work. Day trips supporting the curriculum continue throughout the academic year, however each year the Alice Smith School dedicate one week in July to the highly anticipated ‘Trips Week’. There are a wide range of trips to choose from, offering personal, physical and intellectual challenges in a wonderful range of environments, from city to jungle, both local and international in the developed or developing world.
These residential trips focus on some or all of the following elements: community service; personal development and curriculum-related learning. All these factors help develop important life skills such as co-operation, interpersonal communication and most importantly help build a connected community through an appreciation and understanding of different cultures and environments.
Our trips undergo rigorous risk assessment and safety procedures and are in line with UK best practice and the recommendations from the FOBISIA Community Conference, which has developed guidelines for British international schools in SE Asia.
