Student support

The system of pastoral care is highly developed at Dulwich College (Singapore). Every student is supported by a form tutor and the school’s pastoral team. All our students follow a Personal, Social and Health Education course appropriate to their age and coordinated across the year groups.

Across the College our House system builds a sense of community within the student body and helps to develop students’ leadership and teamwork skills. Our House Captains are elected by their peers and together with the House Representatives are responsible for helping to foster a team spirit and instilling a sense of pride throughout the House. They also ensure new students joining the College are looked after and made to feel welcome within their form group and the House as a whole. Students regularly represent their House in a range of Inter-House Competitions linked to music, sports, drama, art and academic enrichment. In addition, House Points are awarded for high quality work and positive contributions in the classroom, as well as for demonstrating our values around the College. 

Our House system is a key component of the College pastoral care structure. Many international school students experience a great deal of change in their lives. As their parents move from country to country, they make new friends and adapt to different cultures and school systems. We ensure that children are welcomed into the Dulwich community, that we know them well and that they are supported during their time at the College

There are numerous opportunities for students to be involved in other leadership positions across the College, where the emphasis is placed on serving the community. Our Student Council is made up of students from each Year Group who learn to listen and work with one another, while voicing the views of their peers. On the recommendation of the Student Council, Action Groups have been set up focusing on specific areas of the school for improvement such as Community Service and Healthy Eating. Our student leadership teams set a strong example to younger students and act as a point of contact for students throughout the College. They are considered ambassadors for the College, making presentations in assemblies and welcoming visitors to the College. 

Our Counselling Service is designed for the whole College community. Our College Counsellor, takes a fun and playful approach to listening which quickly puts students at ease and encourages a trustful relationship where students can work to overcome personal problems and dissolve emotions and behaviours that are causing them discomfort. This service is not just for students; our Counsellor also welcomes staff, parents and whole families to come and talk to him too. The counselling room is kitted out with bean bags, giant cushions, sofas and many fun games all intended to allow students to feel as comfortable as possible and to have a fun and positive experience while doing real emotional work on themselves.

Our Heritage

The close collaboration among our Colleges stimulates innovation and encourages an international outlook, which we believe provides students an advantage in the future they will face. The result is a community where academic ability is nourished, creativity is valued, diversity is celebrated and inspiration is paramount.

Our Facilities

Our College campus is an expression of our learning philosophy. We offer an educational environment designed to nurture the intellectual, physical, social, and emotional development of our students. 

Our Approach to Learning

Our students experience the very best of a British Independent School education, which is holistic, academically challenging and adapted to meet the individual needs of our international family.

Dual Language Learning for the 21st Century

We recognise the importance of competency and fluency in a second language. To this end, we are committed to a dual language approach in DUCKS (age 1 - 7) where children are taught in both English and Mandarin. Students in DUCKS and Junior School receive daily Chinese classes which are streamed according to their ability.
