About Nord Anglia Education
Nord Anglia Education (NAE) is the world’s leading premium schools organisation, with campuses located across dozens of countries in the Americas, Europe, China, Southeast Asia, India and the Middle East. Together, our schools educate tens of thousands of students from kindergarten through to the end of secondary school. We are driven by one unifying philosophy: we are ambitious for our schools, students, teachers, staff and communities, and we inspire every child who attends an NAE school to achieve more than they ever imagined possible.
Every parent wants the best for their child — so do we. NAE schools deliver high quality, transformational education and ensure excellent academic outcomes by going beyond traditional learning. Our global scale enables us to recruit and retain world-leading teachers and to offer unforgettable experiences through global and regional events, while our engaging learning environments ensure all of our students love coming to school.
Founded in 1972 in the United Kingdom, the name Nord Anglia reflects the company’s beginnings in the north of England. NAE initially offered learning services such as English-as-a-foreign-language classes and grew during the 1980s by opening full-scale nurseries and kindergartens. In 1992, NAE opened its first international school, the British School of Warsaw. In the 2000s, the company began a strategic focus on premium international schools, with rapid growth in Asia, the Americas, China and across Europe and the Middle East. A truly international organisation, NAE now operates premium international schools worldwide. In July 2019, the company relocated its headquarters from Hong Kong to London, enabling even stronger growth in the future.
About our school
Also established in 1972, Dover Court International School in Singapore is a leading inclusive British international school. We serve international families of students aged 3 to 18. Our curriculum is based upon the DfE’s Early Years Foundation Stage framework, the National Curriculum for England, the International Primary Curriculum, IGCSE/GCSE, the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and International BTEC Level 2 in Business.
We are unique in offering a bespoke set of alternative pathways for students. In Secondary we have courses that focus on English, mathematics, life skills and employability through ASDAN programmes, and vocational qualifications such as the International BTEC Level 1 in Business. In Primary we are guided by the National Curriculum for England and draw upon the International Primary Curriculum and Reggio Emilia inspired approaches.
Our school is active in the local international school sports league and we are extremely competitive across a number of sports. The school has an extensive programme of residential trips starting in Year 4 up to the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award in Secondary. All students are involved in a wide range of co-curricular activities, mainly run by teaching staff. About 10% of our students are supported by our integrated SEN unit.
The school is on a green 12-acre site about 20 minutes from the Singapore CBD and has excellent specialist facilities, including libraries, ICT suites, The Link (maker-space), dance studio, swimming pool and sports halls. We recently opened a new building to accommodate the increasing numbers of Secondary students, which boasts purpose-built art, drama, PE, music and IT specialist spaces. In 2022 we will open a new indoor sports hall, a specialist arts and technology building and bespoke facilities for our Pathways programme.
We are members of the Federation of British International Schools in Asia (FOBISIA) and are accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). We are an EDEXCEL and AQA exam centre and are authorised by the IBO to deliver the IB Diploma Programme. We are the only school in Singapore to offer ASDAN courses.
Staff are well supported with professional development sessions run in-house and by access to external training courses through Nord Anglia University, FOBISIA and our partnerships with King’s College London, MIT, The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families and The Juilliard School. There is a strong ethos of professional collegiality.
Each Nord Anglia Education school is unique in character and designed to meet the needs of its community. We are united by our philosophy, to be ambitious for our students, our people, and our family of schools. We believe that staff and students being part of our family of schools gives them a special advantage. Working together, we can achieve more than we can individually. Our schools have access to a wide range of resources and support to enhance their success. We also create unique opportunities to benefit our students and people, such as the Global Campus, Nord Anglia University, and our collaborations with The Juilliard School, MIT, UNICEF and King’s College London.
