Dover Court International School

Dover Court International School was founded more than 40 years ago and is one of Singapore’s longest established international schools. We are passionate about how children learn and committed to ensure each individual child attains the very best they can. We are a Nord Anglia Education school and alongside the other 28 schools in the family, the Dover Court community – students and staff – benefit from unparalleled opportunities.

We make a set of core promises. Firstly, at Dover Court, your child will be a passionate learner, engaging enthusiastically in everything they do and making outstanding progress. Teachers are well skilled at helping children to understand how they are doing and areas where they can improve. This process enables children to become part of the learning process and also helps them to become independent and disciplined in their school life.

Secondly, your child will respect, support and positively interact with people from many different cultures in the community. Inter-cultural understanding is at the heart of the school’s ethos and built extensively into the curriculum through events such as UN Day and Deevali celebrations.

Thirdly, your child will become a socially and intellectually confidently individual. With 650 students, and fully staffed and resourced departments for English as a Second Language and Special Needs, learning is very carefully tailored to each child’s needs and extremely effective at delivering results. Importantly, learning is monitored rigorously and feedback is given at every level so that students never cease to develop academically and socially.
