Dover Court international school was founded more than 40 years ago and is one of Singapore’s longest established international schools. With approximately 650 students, it is slightly smaller that some of the other international schools out there, but it benefits from being part of the Nord Anglia group of global schools. Though it is currently solidly on the English National Curriculum, Dover Court does have a clear focus on diversity and has specialised support for students whose second language is English. There are also plans to introduce the IB Diploma Programme in future years.
