Admissions

Dulwich College (Singapore) is an international school founded on the ethos and values of the British independent schooling system, but with a global outlook and contemporary approach that reflects the diverse backgrounds of our students who join us from many different countries.    

Dulwich College (Singapore) is an academically selective school with an emphasis on a rich, well-rounded education including sport, music, the performing arts and a wide range of other co-curricular activities. We believe education has to be as flexible, creative and adaptive as our increasingly complex, ever-changing world. This is why we equip our students with the character to stand up and stand out, now and in the future. Our college follows an enhanced British curriculum adapted for the needs of our international student body. Students follow the IGSCE curriculum in Years 9, 10 and 11 and the IB Diploma Programme in Year 12 and 13. Continuing the tradition of excellence started by the founding school, Dulwich College International graduates go on to study at leading universities in the UK, USA and around the world.

Our holistic education founded on scholarship is complemented by rewarding co-curricular programmes. Our students are encouraged to participate in sporting competition and every child from the age of seven is taught a musical instrument. Drama and opportunities for public speaking feature heavily from an early age.

We offer a dual language programme in English and Mandarin for students from two to seven years of age and daily Mandarin classes, streamed according to ability from the age of four. Additional modern foreign languages are offered in our Senior School. The close collaboration among our Colleges gives our students unique opportunities to participate in network events and benefit from the group's relationships with leading educational and artistic organisations.
