LET'S GO is proud to launch the inaugural Best Schools Awards (Singapore) celebrating excellence in education.

Voted for by parents, teachers and principals – and judged by a panel of education experts – the awards recognise outstanding learning, teaching, pastoral care and leadership at international schools across Singapore. This will be the ‘Oscars’ of the academic year. It is an opportunity for us all to celebrate and recognise the achievements of schools and their teachers. is Singapore’s most trusted source of school information, advice and data for parents when choosing the right international school for their child. As well as featuring in-depth guides on how to choose a school, the cost of education, the choice of curriculum and exam results, our editors have independently reviewed every international school in Singapore.

During the past five years, we have rounded up some of the best schools in Singapore on the strength of their curricula, quality of teaching and learning, facilities, academic success, affordability, value for money and location. But which are the top schools this year in your view? Which schools are casting aside complacency, innovating and standing out for their curriculum, sport and arts programmes, and wellbeing initiatives.

The WSA (Singapore) Best Schools Awards 2022 elevates your voice, and gives you a chance to express your views on why your school, your principal, your teachers and your programmes stand out.

Entry is now open – and full details of the categories and how to enter is detailed below. The closing date for entries is January 30, 2022. 

How winners are decided

  1. Entrants need to be nominated. Nominations may be made by schools, parents, teaching staff, and the editors of itself. 
  2. The key to a successful nomination is NOT the number of entries but the quality of any nomination. One reasoned justification with relevant data will do more to win an award than 1,000 empty nominations. 
  3. For school categories judges will also receive data from our Parent, Student and Teacher surveys. Data received from surveys is in many cases the single most persuasive source of data for the awards. If the school you represent has limited data, then there is limited support for your nomination. Schools should send out the links to their teachers, parents and students.
