A Warm Welcome To The Perse School Singapore

The Perse School Singapore is the boutique International British school in Singapore emphasising academic achievement with a unique, nurturing environment only possible in a small school setting. A diverse, genuinely inclusive school community, The Perse welcomes families from many different cultures and nationalities. We challenge our children outside of the classroom with great emphasis placed on developing breadth and balance, with an all-rounded education full of clubs, sports, outdoor pursuits, music, art and drama.

The excellent academic heritage, breadth and balance of the curriculum and pastoral care is embedded from The Perse School Cambridge which has over 400 years of tradition and has been adapted to meet the international needs of children in Singapore.

Subject-Specific Teaching

From Year 3, each child is taught by subject-specific teachers, who bring depth and passion to their subject.  We have passionate subject-specific teachers on hand to ignite every child’s curiosity for learning.

Working with an understanding of how children progress in that subject, our subject-specialists have the ability to meaningfully extend and fine-tune our children’s learning in the traditional prep school manner.

The Perse Values

Our core values underpin the way in which we teach our children. Our aim is for our students to leave The Perse School as well-rounded, confident individuals who are excited to learn through taking risks with the confidence to make and then reflect on their mistakes.

Our Core Values are: Intellectual Curiosity & Scholarship, Breadth & Balance, Endeavour & Respect for One Another & Our Environment.

Multi-sensory & Experiential Learning

We believe in hands on learning through multi-sensory and experiential techniques such as games, technology & visual aids, as well as working with the more traditional textbooks. 

Our Key-Stage 1 specialists (Years 1&2), deliver the Cambridge Curriculum through a creative narrative-based approach. Pupils will build towards enterprise outcomes like running pop-up restaurants, museums, galleries or publishing work. In addition, pupils enjoy a rich mix of visits and workshops which complement and stimulate learning. 

This ensures that the children develop a good understanding of the world through exciting and inspiring learning opportunities.

A Cosy Learning Environment

The Perse School Singapore is a boutique school in the heart of Bukit Timah. The maximum capacity of our school is only 290 children, and we are therefore able to create a nurturing environment in which our children thrive, gaining confidence and lifelong friendships.

Our class tutors deliver pastoral and social programmes to strengthen their tutees’ emotional understanding and resilience to support the development of The Perse values. We believe that our tutor system coupled with specialist subject teaching provides the best balance of pastoral and academic development.

Parents & Students’ Testimonials

Year 5
“I love The Perse School Singapore because all the teachers are very kind and there is a big mix of students from all over the world – I have made really good friends since starting here in April. I also love being able to do experiments in the science labs and singing in the music room plus we get different teachers for each subject which makes it so much fun!”
Year 3
“I love The Perse School Singapore because everyone is so friendly, and I am getting to learn coding as an Extra Curricular Activity and Chinese every day which I LOVE. I also get to read lots of books from the library. I like that I am making lots of friends. The Perse School Singapore is the best!”
Year 3
“I still remember my first day at The Perse School Singapore. I was nervous about the new school but my teachers were very kind and helpful. I was welcomed by a friend who buddied with me and showed me around the school. We went to the library, our super cool science labs, music room and the lunch hall. I feel happy and confident at The Perse School Singapore where I have so many friends. My favourite subject is music and I love going into the music room and making my own music. School is super fun!!”
Simon & Alexandra Young,
Parents of Elena & Jessie
(Year 2 & Year 5)

“We joined The Perse School Singapore in June 2020 and have 2 children there. When our children first started the teachers dedicated time with the children and assigned each of them a buddy to help them settle in. We love The Perse School Singapore because it builds on the heritage and history of The Perse School in Cambridge, UK yet it is a small nurturing school offering small class sizes.

We always have direct access to our children’s form tutors which is fantastic – if there are any concerns/issues or good news to share, it can be done almost instantaneously! We couldn’t be happier that we found The Perse School Singapore for our children.”

Paul & Emma Vorley,
Parents of Max
(Year 3)

“We could not be happier with our choice to send our son, Max, to The Perse School Singapore. As we have moved from the U.K., we wanted the continuity of staying within the U.K. curriculum.

The Perse School Singapore provides this and more, with the added benefit of daily Chinese and the combination of Singapore Maths incorporated with Cambridge Maths. The excellent academic standards and the dedication of the staff at The Perse School Singapore are clear to see.

However, it is the warmth and the community feel to the school which really sets it apart. All the staff know my son by name and the nurturing environment provides an excellent platform for learning and development. My son is so happy at school and is thriving both academically and socially. We feel very lucky to have found The Perse School Singapore.”
