Dover Court International School
Established fifty years ago in 1972, Dover Court International School in Singapore is a leading inclusive British international school. We serve international families of students aged 3 to 18. Our curriculum is based upon the DfE’s Early Years Foundation Stage framework, the National Curriculum for England, the International Primary Curriculum, IGCSE/GCSE, the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and International BTEC Level 2 in Business.
We are unique in offering a bespoke set of pathways for students. In Secondary we have courses that focus on English, mathematics, life skills and employability through ASDAN programmes, and vocational qualifications such as the International BTEC Level 1 in Business. In Primary we are guided by the National Curriculum for England and draw upon the International Primary Curriculum and Reggio Emilia inspired approaches. About 10% of our students are supported by our integrated SEN unit.
Our school is active in the local international school sports league and we are extremely competitive across a number of sports. The school has an extensive programme of residential trips starting in Year 4 up to the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award in Secondary. All students are involved in a wide range of co-curricular activities, mainly run by teaching staff.
The school is on a green 12-acre site about 20 minutes from the Singapore CBD and has excellent specialist facilities, including libraries, ICT suites, The Link (maker-space), dance studio, swimming pool and sports halls. We recently opened a new building to accommodate the increasing numbers of Secondary students, which boasts purpose-built art, drama, PE, music and IT specialist spaces. In 2022 we will open a new indoor sports hall, a specialist arts and technology building and bespoke facilities for our Pathways programme.
We are members of the Federation of British International Schools in Asia (FOBISIA) and are accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). We are an EDEXCEL and AQA exam centre and are authorised by the IBO to deliver the IB Diploma Programme. We are the only school in Singapore to offer ASDAN courses.
Staff are well supported with professional development sessions run in-house and by access to external training courses through Nord Anglia University, FOBISIA and our partnerships with King’s College London, MIT, The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families and The Juilliard School. There is a strong ethos of professional collegiality.
