Founded in 1972, Dover Court International School (DCIS) proudly celebrates 50 years this year. DCIS is an international, multicultural and inclusive school community in the heart of Singapore. We are a community underpinned and guided by clear values, which resonate with the values of Singapore itself and with those upheld by global communities everywhere.
Dover Court is unique in welcoming children of diverse strengths and talents and in providing an education which is aligned to each individual. We welcome students from 3 to 18 years old, from Nursery to Year 13, with our student body comprising of over 60 nationalities.
As part of Nord Anglia Education (NAE) we benefit from the unparalleled opportunities gained from being part of a worldwide network of over 80 schools. At DCIS, we are highly ambitious for our students in all aspects of their academic and personal growth. Our students are energetic, articulate, motivated, confident, caring and they are eager to make their mark on the world. One of the great strengths of our British style international education is that such growth involves all aspects of students’ moral, physical, emotional, social and academic development focused on each individual’s personal best.
At DCIS, this is achieved through superb teaching supported and complemented by Teaching Assistants and the guidance of Form Tutors and Progress Leaders. Dover Court is unique in Singapore in welcoming students with diverse needs and talents and we deliver on our promises, with bespoke programmes that enable every student to thrive, to flourish and expand their potential. Education has never succeeded with a "one size fits all" approach but few schools manage to personalise education in the ways that Dover Court does: three pathways, and many qualification routes, blended and customised to each individual.
Students from Nursery to Year 11 follow the National Curriculum for England, adapted for our international context, leading to the IGCSE qualifications. Sixth Form students, Years 12 and 13, complete either the IB Diploma Programme, IB Courses or the International BTEC in Business. Our 2022 IBDP Graduates achieved an average score of 39 points, 56% of our students achieved over 40 points, with our highest score being 44, achieved by three students. Our graduates are now attending universities in Singapore, UK, USA, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, The Netherlands, Ireland, and Dubai.
