Sekolah Berasrama Penuh (SBP) or Fully Residential School is a school system established during the 1970's in Malaysia . The main purpose of it is to nurture selected outstanding students in a conducive and educational environment to excel in academics and extracurricular activities, creating a wholesome student.


Student selection criteria

There is great competition to acquire places in these elite schools as the number of places are limited compared to the number of eligible applicants. Students are chosen by the SBP unit of the Ministry of Education based on certain criteria. Enrolment is open at the level of Form 1 and Form 4.

School system

Students are required to stay in campus throughout the academic session. Amenities such as classrooms, lodging, praying area, sports facilities and food halls are provided for the use of the students with the aim of developing their talents and cultivating their potential in a conducive learning environment. Being selected students, the government spends a high sum of allocation subsidising students of SBP.

Schools can either be single sex or coed. The teachers chosen are among the best in their fields, and this is particularly important as a great emphasis is placed in excellent academic achievements.

In accordance to the high standard expected from these schools, students who are found to not achieve at required levels may be dismissed from the system, but this vary between the schools and is at the discretion of the governing body of the respective schools. Students with poor disciplinary records are also dismissed from the school system, as there is little tolerance for misbehaviour.
