You’ll be excited to know that it brings to our sunny island its centuries-long Cambridge roots, which the school has tapped into to create a well-rounded syllabus that includes both the arts and new cutting-edge technology.

A wealth of knowledge, commitment and understanding
More curious about the academics in charge of inspiring your kids? Rest assured your little learners are in good hands. Founding Principal, Ms Claire Bell, is set to lead The Perse School Singapore faculty, as they take their cue from and follow closely the Cambridge International Primary curriculum enhanced by Singapore Maths and Chinese as a second language.
With over 20 years’ experience in the UK and internationally, Claire brings with her a nuanced multi-cultural approach having managed schools from Iraq to Southeast Asia. Who better to rouse that same passion for purpose and potential over the course of your child’s late formative years?
Mindfully blazing trails
What truly sets The Perse School Singapore apart from other schools is its dedication to its ethos of mindful support and Persean core values. With a system of pastoral care in place alongside a dedicated counselling room, your child will have the support and encouragement they need to develop not only their potential, but also strong global and local connections.
You’ll find that the wide range of extra-curriculars across the arts, sports and rhetoric further complement the social and emotional aspects of growing up. Paired together with the school’s precise, innovative and practical syllabus, you can be certain your child will be immersed in a fun, holistic 360-experience.
