One of Singapore’s newest British international schools, The Perse School Singapore is a boutique school emphasising academic achievement with a unique, nurturing environment only possible in a small school setting. A diverse, genuinely inclusively school community, Perse welcomes families from many different cultures and nationalities.
The Perse School Singapore offers a British curriculum for Key Stage 1 (age 5 to 7 years old), Key Stage 2 (age 7 to 11 years old) with plans to open Key Stage 3 (11-13 years old). There is a healthy emphasis on outstanding academic achievements balanced by nurturing character development for each individual student.
The Perse School follows the Cambridge Primary Programme with a Singapore touch, incorporating Singapore Mathematics, daily Mandarin classes, English, Science, Geography, History, Art, Music, PE, Global Perspectives, and Digital Literacy. From Year 3, each subject is taught by subject-specific trained teachers, providing depth and passion to each subject.
The Perse children thrive on challenges outside the classroom with great emphasis placed on developing breadth and balance through sport, clubs, music, art and drama.
The excellent academic heritage embedded in The Perse School Cambridge, has been adapted to meet the international needs of children in Singapore. The broad and balanced curriculum ensures that the children develop a good understanding of the world through exciting and inspiring learning opportunities.
It is our aim for every Persian to become a confident, all rounded individual with the tools to contribute positively to society.
Our Vision is to Love Learning and Strive for the Greater Good.
The Perse has 2 purpose built Science Labs, a Music room and Activity room. Whilst The Perse doesn’t have any outdoor space, we fully utilise our surroundings. During double PE lessons children are taken on a short bus ride to The Temasek Club where they partake in swimming lessons taught by Olympic finalist Tao Li. When they are not swimming pupils play sport at The Rainforest Hub which is also conveniently situated a 5 minute bus ride away.
Office hours: 8am-5pm
Our well equipped classrooms are meticulously designed for comfort and maximum collaboration. Each classroom features high-tech touchscreen TVs that are fully integrated with Apple TVs and iPads for maximum interactivity and engagement from the children. With a 1:24 teacher to pupil ratio, children receive individualised attention that is focused on their unique learning style. Modular furniture allows teachers to adapt the setting to best suit the daily learning objectives.
With access to state-of-the-art equipment in our fully equipped science laboratory, students can observe scientific processes and understand the relationship between action and reaction. They can interact directly with the data gathered and enjoy first-hand learning experience by performing various experiments on their own.
For creative expression, pupils benefit from having a specialist music room, which allows them to learn and explore different types of music. For indoor physical activity, pupils can look forward to PE lessons, sports and games at our Sports Hub, located in the basement.
Our campus has three different spaces where our pupils can gather and have fun. For those looking forward to active fun, our purpose-built Indoor Activity Area lets them shoot hoops in a game of basketball, strive for perfect play in Connect-4, have free-play fun at the activity tables or simply relax on a beanbag.
Pupils who prefer a tranquil sanctuary for reading or studying can spend their free time at our indoor quiet area. They can enjoy reading a book from our collection in a cosy reading nook, or catch up on their revision in the study area.
For everything in between, we have a small open corner named the ThinkPad. Equipped with bookshelves, beanbags and games, the casual setting is ideal for those who just want to chill

Beyond the classroom there is a wealth of opportunity in music, sport and robotics, along with a vibrant programme of various clubs and societies. Pupils can pursue their interest in sports, including football, tennis and swimming. Our various creative arts programmes featuring music, film-making, public speaking and debates set the stage for cultivating individual talents and confident self-expression. There are also clubs dedicated to maths, science as well as LEGO Robotics and coding for those keen to hone their analytical and thinking skills and build on what they have learnt in the classroom.
Through these opportunities, pupils take on more responsibilities and develop important life skills such as organisation, communication and creativity.
Our pupils can look forward to stimulating trips, activities and social events throughout the year. They are encouraged to explore the rich cultural life of Singapore and engage with the local community while keeping an open mind as global citizens.
