AN EDUCATION THAT OFFERS EVERYTHING

Respected worldwide and created by education experts, our British and international curricula reimagine learning through six core educational pillars.

Academic excellence

At Dover Court, our ambition is simple: to offer a fully inclusive education where every child, regardless of ability, achieves success.

To make this happen, we offer three distinct yet fluid pathways, which provide tiered levels of support, challenge, and personalisation. While students on each pathway all follow globally recognised British and international curricula – which include career-focused BTEC and ASDAN qualifications alongside IGCSEs and the IB Diploma (IBDP) – key concepts are contextualised and adapted in different ways. This ensures each student is stretched and supported at the right level, in the right subjects, and through the right teaching approach.

We want every student to love learning, too. Your child will reap the personal, social, and emotional benefits of teaching that’s truly tailored to their individual goals, talents, and interests.

We live and breathe inclusivity, and this approach ensures that every child achieves their best. It also guarantees we thrive as a community. In 2022, every single one of our students passed the IBDP, achieving an average point score of 39 – the highest of any Nord Anglia school worldwide. What’s more, 56% scored 40 points or above, placing our students in the top 10% globally. Every single one of our pathway students passed their ASDAN Employability and Personal and Social Development Awards and Certificates, too.

World-leading exam grades, coupled with a holistic student-centered programme, take our students wherever they want to go in life. Whether that’s studying at one of the world’s top 10 universities or embarking on a rewarding career development programme, your child will have access to an incredible breadth of opportunities in their lives beyond our classrooms.

The world's best teachers

Our students love coming to school every day. And that’s thanks to our talented teachers, who work tirelessly to deliver outstanding personalised learning experiences that stimulate, excite, and inspire.

Every single one of our exceptional educators is carefully chosen, based not only on their impressive qualifications and extensive global experience, but also their values. Through a rigorous recruitment process, we make sure their teaching philosophy aligns with our inclusive educational vision.

Hailing from more than 20 countries, our diverse teaching team brings cutting-edge knowledge and specialist skills to the classroom. They’re adept at understanding how a child learns best and identifying individual needs, too. In every subject and on all three of our pathways, lessons spark creative thinking, ignite imaginations, and encourage hands-on problem-solving.

Our expert inclusion team ensures every student is heard and embraced. Comprising an educational psychologist, learning support specialists, and licensed therapists, they provide the care and attention our young people need to be happy, secure, and successful.

We invest heavily in our community’s professional development, too. Our teachers study for new qualifications, including a Master’s in International Education through King’s College London, and learn from world-leading experts on bespoke training with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and The Juilliard School. They can also access world-class CPD programmes on the award-winning Nord Anglia University platform.

Advanced learning environments

With its unique heritage buildings, modern sports and creative spaces, and lush natural areas, our campus is unlike any other international school in Singapore. Set across 12 acres – and surrounded by tropical greenery – Dover Court is the perfect place to learn, discover, and thrive.

Advanced learning environment

Our campus truly is a special place to learn. Here, historical buildings and modern, purpose-built learning environments combine to create an exceptional school setting that’s the physical embodiment of our multicultural community.

Within walking distance of two bus and MRT stations, close to popular residential communities, and next door to leafy parklands – which our students use for all sorts of activities – our charming campus is ideally located, too.

Your child will be inspired by our purpose-built Expressive Arts Centre, which opened in 2022. With its black box drama studio, interactive design technology labs, soundproofed music rooms, and instrumental practice suites, it’s a place where creativity blossoms and imaginations run wild.

Our students love getting active, too. In our swimming pool and sports halls, as well as on our fields and courts, ambitious athletes sharpen their skills, work as a team, and compete against friends and other international schools. Open to all abilities, they’re also spaces that nurture positive mental and physical health.

Innovation flourishes here, where the latest education technology (EdTech) is effortlessly embedded into teaching and learning. In addition to our digital Global Campus platform – which enables students to connect, collaborate, and work on projects with friends across the world – your child will have access to iPads, 3D printers, a green screen room, and specialist resources including the Duplo Coding Express and Lego WeDo. These deliver truly 21st century learning experiences that transform education and accelerate development.

Exceptional learning experiences

Through an unparalleled collection of learning experiences, your child will think big, chase their dreams, and achieve amazing things. We’ll support them every step of the way, providing the wellbeing care they need to do what they love and tackle new challenges.

Image_DCIS_Singapore_2023_230
Exceptional learning experiences

Many of our students’ most memorable learning experiences are forged outside of the classroom, through opportunities that intensify their knowledge, ignite new passions, and nurture talents.

From hiking, climbing, and camping in the Swiss Alps to building clean water and sanitation systems in Borneo, our rich programme of trips and expeditions broaden our students’ horizons and instil a lifelong love of adventure. The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award, Model United Nations, and student ambassador programmes develop important leadership qualities, as well as building confidence and resilience.

Our diverse co-curricular programme is an integral part of school life. With more than 250 activities to choose from, we offer one of the most extensive enrichment programmes in Singapore. Your child can get active at our yoga, tennis, and Futsal clubs. They can learn an instrument, play chess, or 3D print their own inventions. Or they can try something a little bit different, like creating a puppet show or learning Makaton.

Exclusive Nord Anglia collaborations with world leaders in the performing arts and STEAM transform traditional learning, too. In partnership with The Juilliard School, we offer the highest quality drama and music education, while our STEAM programme with MIT opens our students’ eyes to the possibilities of science, technology, engineering, arts, and maths.

The Nord Anglia Education family 

Our inclusive school community is home to students, families, and teachers from more than 60 countries. This fosters a rich atmosphere of diversity and respect, as well as nurturing global connections and opening minds.

Our three distinct learning pathways are purposefully structured and timetabled to enable all students to come together for academic, social, and cultural events, including assemblies, residential trips, and festive celebrations. Creating a strong sense of community and kinship, our House system also provides lots of opportunities for competition, fun, and friendship.

Open to everyone, the Dover Court Parent Association (DCA) welcomes new families to our school and city, organises philanthropic projects, and arranges social activities, including picnics and holiday celebrations. You’ll also be invited to parent-teacher conferences, workshops, and regular coffee mornings, where you’ll have your say on how we do things at our school.

Our location in Singapore – renowned for its multiculturalism and diversity – also offers endless opportunities for meaningful connections. Whether through shared cultural events, residential experiences, or local projects, your child will immerse themselves in a thriving international environment.

Our social purpose

Whether it’s finding solutions to global challenges, raising funds and awareness for local causes, or taking on a leadership role, our students effect real change in Singapore and across the world.

Image_DCIS_Singapore_2023_212
 Our social purpose

At Dover Court, every student takes part in life-changing outreach, social responsibility, and environmental activities, which have a genuine impact on how they perceive the world – and make a real difference in our community.

Our students stand up for what they believe in and make their voices heard through our exclusive collaboration with UNICEF. Your child will explore global issues – including the UN Sustainable Development Goals and climate change – and take part in debates, challenges, and international trips, where they’ll share their ideas on the world stage.

Our citizenship expedition to Arusha in Tanzania is a life-changing experience. Alongside changemakers from Nord Anglia schools around the world, our students work with locals on vital community projects. They also learn about the environment and global sustainability, and the role we play in protecting our planet.

Leadership opportunities are built into every aspect of the Dover Court experience, too. From student-led assemblies and our Student Council to House captains and STEAM ambassadors, we encourage our students to shape our school environment and represent their peers.

You’ll also find our community donating books to Curious Thoughts Giving, a local charity that promotes literacy in underprivileged communities; providing care packages for Raining Raincoats, a charity that helps migrant workers; and planting trees in support of the Singaporean Government’s OneMillionTrees project.
