Located in the heart of Singapore, Dover Court International School (DCIS) is an international, multicultural and inclusive school community. Founded in 1972, Dover Court has, over the last 50 years, established a reputation for providing a comprehensive, truly inclusive education underpinned by outstanding teaching and a warm, supportive environment. At Dover Court, success looks different for every student, and diverse curriculum options provide multiple routes to life after school. Here, inclusivity and academic excellence go hand in hand, and we know that students who feel safe and happy can better focus on their learning. We welcome students from 3 to 18 years old, from Nursery to Year 13, with our student body comprising 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, and 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 a strong pastoral structure. 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, 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 Diplomas in Business. The diverse cohort of our 2023 IBDP graduates achieved an average score of 35 points; 74% of our students scored above the global average, and our highest score was 43 points. Our graduates are now attending some of the best universities in the world.
