Established in 2011, we may be a new school but we draw on a long and established history of educational excellence. The pioneering work of Frances Mary Buss, 160 years ago, at North London Collegiate School, paved the way for an exciting and inclusive movement in education.
Here at NLCS Jeju we are building on these foundations to create an optimal learning environment for our community. If you were to ask current parents why they chose NLCS Jeju, they would tell you that the students here are cheerful, balanced, at ease with themselves and each other - yet excited and enthused by the challenges before them. They might add that we succeed in combining academic excellence with a wealth of cocurricular opportunities, all underpinned by a deep commitment to the individual needs and passions of each student. Our students believe that anything is possible.
To be a leader in international education, we believe that a school must offer outstanding facilities to help realise the potential of its students. We have invested heavily to ensure that our community has access to facilities to be envious of.
NLCS Jeju serves a student body of over 1,250 students from Nursery (Age 3) through to Year 13. We are a boarding and day school, with most students in the Secondary School, Year 7-13, boarding.
A significant majority of NLCS Jeju students are Korean. A small minority hail from China and Japan, and the remaining students, come from English-speaking nations worldwide. All of our students come to NLCS Jeju with considerable ability in English. Additionally, we are a selective school based on academic potential and achievement.
NLCS Jeju prides itself on providing exceptional pastoral care for each and every student. We believe that by supporting students in every aspect of their lives and removing all barriers to learning, they will perform to their full potential. We address any issue that can affect a child's learning with conviction, professionalism and purpose.
We also ensure that our students have a balanced approach to their school years which includes appropriate levels of sleep, exercise, social activity and academic pursuits.
Our co curricular programme is a critical component of our school’s community. Teachers, students and external experts collaborate to offer more than 180 clubs, activities and societies every week. In a single week, a student could train with the rugby squad, learn filmmaking, compete in a debating competition, play in the school orchestra and learn to ride a horse.
The co curricular ethos and programme is designed to build qualities that will allow our students to excel academically and also have the strength of character to succeed at university, in the workplace and in life. In a caring and safe environment students are actively encouraged to try themselves out and develop in areas such as resilience, adaptability, communication, empathy, commitment and leadership.
We offer a broad curriculum, rooted in traditional academic disciplines in class sizes that remain small. Our students develop a profound understanding of the subjects they study by engaging with the thinking that lies at the heart of each discipline. The ultimate aim of our highly qualified teaching faculty is to inspire a love of learning in our students that will last a lifetime.
The curriculum for students from age 3 - 11 at NLCS Jeju is the same as the ambitious one offered by NLCS UK. Our outstanding teachers inspire and support each student to absorb themselves in the fun and adventure of learning.
The Senior School provides a rigourous academic education taught by highly qualified, knowledgeable and inspiring teachers through lively, active lessons. Students are challenged to think for themselves and to develop their minds independently.
We offer the IBDP in the Sixth Form, with students choosing from 37 subjects.
The strengths of the IBDP are evidenced by our alumnus who are currently studying in Ivy League, Oxbridge, SKY and many other prestigious universities all over the world.
The Class of 2017 IBDP results continue the successful trend in NLCS Jeju students exam results. This year we have 3 students with perfect scores of 45 points, a remarkable achievement. To put this into context, worldwide this year only 218 individuals achieved a maximum score out of 159,400 students from over 136 countries. Again this year, within our 2017 cohort, 40% of our students score 40+ points, a score sufficient to gain an Oxbridge interview.
