North London Collegiate School (NLCS) will open a campus in Singapore in September 2020, offering an IB education to children aged three to 18 years.
The prestigious British independent school, North London Collegiate School (NLCS), will open a campus in Singapore in September 2020. The all-through, co-ed day school will be the third international campus for NLCS, following NLCS Jeju in South Korea, which opened in 2011, and NLCS Dubai, which opened in 2017.
NLCS Singapore is planned to be an International Baccalaureate Continuum School, which will offer the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the IB Diploma. It promises to bring "NLCS’ ethos of rigorous scholarship, extra-curricular excellence and outstanding pastoral care to Singapore".
Bernice McCabe, Director of International Schools and Educational Strategy, NLCS International, says:
"An emphasis on an ambitious education which encourages scholarship and a love of subjects, the importance placed on pastoral care so that no pupil is without support and the strength of an education which truly allows the whole personality to grow are the basis of an NLCS education. We are extremely proud of all that has been achieved at our Jeju and Dubai campuses.
"We have now embarked on the exciting project of opening our third branch school in Singapore and look forward to bringing the NLCS philosophy to life in Singapore.”
NLCS UK has been ranked number one in the UK for International Baccalaureate results with an average Diploma score never dipping below 40 points. In 2016 the school saw an average score of 41.7.
The South Korea school, which is only in its third year for IBDP, has an average of 38 points – on a par with the highest ranking schools in East Asia.
A principal is currently being recruited for the school. The location of the campus has not yet been revealed.
