Dulwich College Singapore is an international school located in Singapore, which opened in 2014. As a branch of Dulwich College, it offers an academic programme for students aged 2 to 18 and is separated into three schools: DUCKS, Junior School and Senior School.[2]

Academics[edit]

Students from ages 2 to 7 are immersed in a dual-language environment, where classes are conducted in both English and Chinese. Daily Chinese classes are conducted for students from years 3 to 6 (aged 7 to 10).[1]

Key facilities[edit]

On August 2018, a performing arts centre at the college was completed, which includes a 742-seat theatre and a pipe organ which is second largest in Singapore[3], two black box theatres and suites of music and art rooms.

Sports facilities at the college include three swimming pools, a multi-purpose pitch, two gymnasiums, a dance studio, a fitness centre, tennis courts and cricket nets.[4]

Additionally, there is dedicated IB centre including quiet study areas and a large common room with a kitchen area, three libraries, three dining rooms, a bike track and sustainable garden throughout the grounds.

With the Junior School Music Programme, students are initially taught a string instrument, then later offered an opportunity to change to wind or bass instrument.[5]
