Built on the foundations of a highly respected British independent school of the same name, Dulwich College (Singapore) offers an enhanced UK curriculum with a dual language approach to Mandarin, an exciting STEAM initiative, and a global creative arts programme. But, as one of Singapore’s most expensive schools, it all comes at a high price. All teaching at its DUCKS, junior and senior schools follows an enhanced form of the English National Curriculum that incorporates elements of the Common Entrance syllabus.
Common Entrance is useful if your child intends to go to an independent school in the UK, and to a lesser extent another private school internationally. The Common Entrance Exams are gateways to admissions at 11+ and 13+.
The school teaches IGCSE up to 16, and introduced the IBDP for Years 12-13 in August 2018.
As part of the curriculum, all students are encouraged to participate in sporting competition and every child from the age of seven to 11 is taught a musical instrument. The beautifully landscaped, purpose-built campus in western Singapore has an impressive performing arts centre with three theatres.
What the school says: “An education must go beyond books, bricks and mortar. Instead it must build a bridge to the world, with pioneering initiatives that enable our students to Graduate Worldwise.”
