Welcome from the Principal

Dear Prospective Doverians,

Dover Court International School is an international, multicultural and inclusive school community in the heart of Singapore. We are a community underpinned and guided by clear values, which resonate with the values of Singapore itself and with those upheld by global communities everywhere.

We are unique in welcoming children of diverse strengths and talents and in providing an education which is aligned to each individual. We are highly ambitious for our students in all aspects of their academic and personal growth. Our students are energetic, articulate, motivated, confident, caring and they are eager to make their mark on the world.

One of the great strengths of our British style international education is that such growth involves all aspects of students’ moral, physical, emotional, aesthetic, social and academic development focused on each individual’s personal best. We are fortunate to have excellent facilities, set in a fascinating city in the heart of Asia.

Teachers are drawn from the very best worldwide and the administrative and professional staff are dedicated leaders in their fields, all of whom play a vital part in the education of our students. As part of the Nord Anglia Education family and through our membership of FOBISIA and the Council of International Schools, we are able to ensure that our staff skills remain at the forefront of education, through outstanding continuous professional development.

Our students have the opportunity to connect with students across more than 80 Nord Anglia schools in over 30 countries though our Global Campus, and our collaborations with UNICEF, MIT and The Juilliard School bring unparalleled opportunities for academic excellence and social purpose. When you and your family become part of DCIS you become part of our community. Through shared values, consistently enacted, together we provide a secure environment for children to feel safe, be happy and to learn and flourish, every single day.

Our parent-run Dover Court Association (DCA) provides a wonderful point of contact between families and school. When you join our school, you will find something for you and your family through the DCA.

This website gives a comprehensive flavour of our school but, for the newcomer, nothing can replace a visit. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our Admissions Team who will be delighted to arrange a time to show you around. I very much look forward to welcoming you to Dover Court International School in person.
