Nexus International School (Singapore) (NISS) is an all-through school in Bukit Timah that offers a combination of the International Baccalaureate programme and the UK's national curriculum.

An education at Nexus International School (Singapore) promises to be personalised, digital and inclusive. This all-through school follows the International Baccalaureate’s PYP at primary levels; Years 7-9 follow a modified English National Curriculum that works towards IGCSEs; and senior students study for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP). As well as a strong focus on technology, and offering a 1:1 laptop programme from Year 6, the school uses flexible learning spaces and team teaching to deliver personalised learning, and has an inclusive admissions policy that welcome students of all abilities.

Nexus International School has provided WhichSchoolAdvisor.com with its IB Diploma results for 2018, a level of transparency that we encourage and applaud.  Whilst no school should be judged by academic results alone, they are inevitably an important consideration for parents when selecting a school.

The official IB results, as evidenced by the IB system, are as follows


IB Diploma results May 2018

This is an impressive set of results. Nexus is an inclusive and non-selective school, with a diverse group of learners who achieved an average of 33 points, 3.2 points above the global average. Four students (11%) of the cohort achieved 41 points. A pass rate of 75% is slightly below the global average, but an achievement of 41 points is significantly above the global average and places the students concerned among the top 5% of students worldwide. 25% of the Diplomas awarded were bilingual, which is a considerable achievement.  Nexus students come from across the world; this particular cohort has nationals from Australia, Russia, China, Canada, Singapore, Malaysia, UK, Norway, India, Japan and Cambodia.

Graduates have been accepted to London School of Economics (Accounting), University of York (Politics & History), and Nangyang Technology University (Artificial Intelligence), as well as universities across Europe, USA and Canada.


Nexus International School (Singapore) will move to a new campus in 2020

The school will move to a new vertical campus in Geylang in 2020, where the primary school will be based on the lower floors; a double-storey library, sports halls, play deck and other communal areas in the middle floors; and the secondary school on the upper floors. Both academic and swimming scholarships are available.

A full review will be posted shortly.
