About NLCS Jeju

The school is located on the picturesque island of Jeju, in South Korea, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was also the first international school to be opened as part of the Global Education City on Jeju Island, which is becoming a centre of English education in Korea and the pre-eminent educational hub of Asia.

In just a few years NLCS Jeju has earned a reputation as one of the most prestigious and successful schools in East Asia. IB Diploma results are outstanding and the school’s graduates are attending some of the world’s leading universities, including Oxbridge and Ivy League colleges.

In keeping with the NLCS philosophy, the curriculum is aspirational and provides significant academic challenge for students. Students sit iGCSE examinations at the end of year 11 and follow the IB Diploma Programme through years 12 and 13.

A message from the principal

Every child matters at NLCS Jeju and as Principal I believe passionately in the importance of the individual. We value each and every student at NLCS Jeju in their own right ensuring they are encouraged to develop their talents to the full in a community where there are no stereotypes and where every achievement, however small, is celebrated.

“The pastoral care is consistently described as outstanding by inspection teams, and the commitment that no child will ever feel unsupported in the school extends across all aspects of the school, including the boarding environment”

NLCS Jeju students often articulate a great appreciation for the extensive enrichment programmes, which currently include over 40 academic societies and over 150 after after-school and weekend activities.
