Dulwich College – Singapore
The College is academically selective and follows an enhanced British curriculum adapted for the needs of our international student body. Students follow the IGSCE curriculum in Years 9, 10 and 11 and the IB Diploma Programme in Years 12 and 13. Continuing the tradition of excellence started by the founding school, Dulwich College in London, Dulwich College International graduates go on to study at leading universities in the UK, USA and around the world.
Sports and Extra-Curricular Activities
Dulwich College (Singapore) is known for its sporting prowess and has achieved much success in local and regional inter-school competitions. Equally important, is the College’s belief that, whilst still competing at the highest level, all students should have access to sport, regardless of ability – the chance to experience being part of a team, and the great camaraderie and development opportunities that affords.
Students can take part in many sports at Dulwich including football, rugby, touch rugby, netball, basketball, athletics, tennis, badminton, swimming, gymnastics, cricket and hockey. At Dulwich, if 100 students sign up to play football or netball, then we will field as many teams as we need to give everyone the chance to play. As part of the Dulwich College International network, students can be selected to take part in the Dulwich Games and the Dulwich Olympiad and also in external competitions such as those hosted by ACSIS (Athletic Conference of Singapore International Schools), FOBISIA (Federation of British International Schools in Asia) and other prestigious international competitions to ensure students are challenged and given an opportunity at every level.
At Dulwich College (Singapore), sports and academic excellence go hand-in-hand, as students have the option to develop personalised pathways through sport and academic study, linking into their university and future career opportunities. In Senior School, students can elect to study Physical Education as a GCSE option (Years 9 to 11) and also Sports & Exercise Science at IB level (Years 12 to 13).
Underpinning all of our sporting endeavours is the notion of good sportsmanship and fair play, which applies to players, parents and coaches. This is encapsulated in our Dulwich College Singapore initials DCSG: Determined, Courageous, Skilful and Gracious. These behaviours define the individual character traits we nurture and develop through our sports programme.
Student Athlete Support Programme (SASP)
High performing sports students seeking to play to the highest standards have the ability to further develop their talents through the Student Athlete Support Programme (SASP), which focuses on four developmental pillars:
- Physical – individual training programmes and health and fitness plans
- Cognitive – the ability to think clearly under pressure and clear goal setting
- Technical and Tactical – sport-specific skills building
- Lifestyle – mentoring and support to balance all areas, including academic performance, and maintain a healthy positive outlook
Dulwich College (Singapore) is an academically-selective school with an emphasis on a rich, well-rounded education including sport, music, the performing arts and a wide range of other co-curricular activities.
Our purpose-built state-of-the art green campus was designed with a ‘student-first’ approach and revolves around three main focal points to support our holistic learning philosophy – a green, sustainable urban environment, an open and conducive learning community and a reflection of shared values of community and culture. The world-class facilities and educational environment are designed to nurture the intellectual, physical, social, and emotional development of our students and include many green spaces including a roof-top herb and fruit garden. Students, staff and all visitors to campus are encouraged to rethink, re-use, reduce and recycle. Measures to aid this include an onsite food waste composter and energy efficient building management systems with information made available to students.
