About NLCS (Singapore)

NLCS (Singapore) is the third international school to open as part of the NLCS Family of Schools, joining NLCS Jeju (opened in 2011) and NLCS Dubai (opened in 2017). As with NLCS Jeju and NLCS Dubai, the school builds on the traditions and values of NLCS (UK), founded in 1850 by Frances Mary Buss. The school teaches a bespoke primary school curriculum with MYP and IBDP accreditation.

In keeping with the NLCS philosophy, the curriculum is academically aspirational, with strong focus on love of subject. A strong sense of community is a defining element of students’ experience of the school, which is attributable to the outstanding individual care every student receives.
