Anglo-Chinese School, Ipoh

The Anglo-Chinese School in Ipoh is the oldest and one of the most prestigious schools in the state of Perak, Malaysia.

This school caters to students from the Standard One to Sixth Forms (7 to 19 years of age). It has impressive facilities such as a swimming pool, an indoor badminton stadium, a gymnasium, an extensive library and a fully equipped computer lab.

Rev. E. Horley founded the school on 5 August 1895 by housing the school in a small attap-roofed Malay house adjoining the Police barracks behind the old Land Office which was later demolished to make way for a new million-dollar mosque.

The Wesley Church, incidentally, is the oldest Methodist building on the Federation of Malaya mainland.

School song (English Version):

Not so very long ago

More than hundred years or so

Horley dauntless hero came

Founded our beloved school

Ipoh Anglo-Chinese School

Through it then was new in name

But the banner then unfurled

Now its known throughout the world


Your country can depend on you

Years we spend in your classrooms

Will help to make us brave and true


To do the right we're not afraid

And we're proud we're the students
