Welcome to Dulwich College (Singapore)
Dulwich College (Singapore) will be the first British independent school to open in Singapore.
The College draws upon almost 400 years of experience in education. Our Founder school, Dulwich College London, was established in 1619 and today provides expertise, resources and a rigorous set of academic standards to which we must adhere.
Opening in August 2014 the College will initially cater for Early Years, Junior and Senior school students from pre-Nursery to Year 8 (ages 2-13). The College will then grow year on year into a fully-fledged Senior School. Dulwich College (Singapore) will eventually have the capacity for 2500 students who will enjoy facilities and resources that would be the envy of any school in the World.
In addition, our close ties with our sister schools in Beijing, Shanghai, Suzhou, Seoul and Zhuhai provide us with access to resources and experience here in Eastern Asia as well as further opportunities for professional development and movement between the Colleges
The Curriculum in our Early years (or DUCKS as it is known) and Junior school will follow the English National Curriculum, enhanced and adapted to meet local requirements. The College will be academically selective and there will be a strong emphasis on Modern Foreign Languages, in particular Mandarin and technology.
In the Senior school, our students will follow the English National curriculum in Years 7-9 and the IGCSE in Years 10-11. We are currently undertaking a feasibility study to ensure that we qualify to apply to the International Baccalaureate (IB) for authorisation to offer its IB Diploma Programme for Years 12 and 13. The process of IB authorisation requires extensive preparation and teacher professional development. We aspire to supersede the minimum standards required by the IB in order to bring the high quality, challenging, and international IB Diploma programme to our students in Years 12 and 13.
The Dulwich name has a proud tradition of academic excellence and co-curricular opportunity. The College motto is “Detur pons Mundo’ or “Building Bridges to the World”. This is exactly what we will aim to do for our happy, confident, international citizens of the world.
