ASSESSMENT
Once a place becomes available – and depending on your child’s age and learning support requirements – we’ll invite them to an age-appropriate assessment. Although we’re a fully inclusive, non-selective school, we do this to get a better understanding of any support your child might need.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQS)

  • How long does the admissions process take?
    The length of the admissions process varies. It’s personalised to your child, so factors like their age, learning support needs, and assessment type all play a part. The time it takes to get the Confidential Student Reference form from your child’s current school can also have an impact.
  • How long is your waiting list?

    We’re currently at capacity, with waiting lists for most age groups. Singapore, however, is a relatively transient place, with families coming and going throughout the year. As the school receives withdrawals, places are offered to children on the waiting list (in order of application).

     Dover Court has three withdrawal deadlines each year, one per term. You can find these in our calendar. Once we’ve had a withdrawal, we’ll contact the next family on the waitlist to immediately offer them a place.

    If we’re unable to offer your child a place for their preferred start date, your application will roll over to the next term (or until a suitable space becomes available). 

  • Is the process different if my company pays the fees?
    If your company is paying your child’s fees, our admissions and finance teams are happy to deal with them directly. Please let us know as early as possible in the process.
  • Is the application fee refundable?
    Once paid, the application fee is non-refundable.
  • What methods of payment do you accept?

    Payments can be made by:

    1. Electronic bank transfer in Singapore Dollars (SGD) to the DCIS bank account:

    Account Name: Dover Court International School (Pte) Ltd

    Bank Name: HSBC (Corporate)

    Account Number (SGD): 052188893001

    Swift Code: HSBCSGSGXXXX

    The remitter is responsible for all bank and foreign exchange charges. Any transfer fees or charges that are eventually deducted from the amount received by the school will remain on your account for collection.

    Please provide a copy of the bank remittance and the student’s name to the Finance Office

    (finance@dovercourt.edu.sg) as proof of payment. To help us identify your payment, please list the invoice number and/or your child’s name (stated on your invoice) in the reference details at the time of your transfer.

    When fee payment is undertaken by a company on behalf of a student’s parents/guardians, a company representative will be asked to provide a DCIS Letter of Guaranteewhen the student is enrolled at DCIS.

    2. Monthly GIRO Payment

    Monthly GIRO payment is offered at no extra charge to all parents who pay fees privately. A Frequently Asked Questions document gives full details of the arrangement and accompanies this letter and is also available on the Parent Portal.

    The following points are important to note:

    • Existing GIRO arrangements will continue and no new form needs to be submitted
    • Completed original GIRO forms must be submitted to the Finance Department, electronic copies will not be accepted.
    • A separate GIRO form must be completed for each student at Dover Court.
    • As the GIRO takes several weeks to process GIRO forms must be returned as soon as possible to allow sufficient processing time
    • There are 9 payment deductions annually, with the final payment of the academic year taking place on 1st April.
