About Us

The GESS community


Since 1971 we have resided at 4 different campuses and with 6 official accreditations later, we are one of the top international schools in Singapore with capacity of 2,000 students, a community of over 4000 people, 65 nationalities and students who speak 40 different mother tongue languages.

This is no mean feat but has been made possible by the many individuals who felt a deep connection with our mission and story and decided to be a part of that.

While our student numbers have grown tremendously, our commitment to being a community-centred school has also never been stronger. True to our origins, we are about providing people, whichever corners of the world they may come from, a sense of belonging and the opportunities they need to thrive through daily application or the principles of respect, openness and diversity in everything we do.

We have succeeded in that commitment by building an eclectic family and creating opportunities: 2 strong curriculum options, language offerings, after-school programmes, social projects and more. We find joy in watching our students push the limits, grow their talents and reach their personal best.

We extend our arms to welcoming those who would like to join us in this endeavour along-side other educators, learners, thinkers and globe-trotters like yourself at our state-of-the-art campus here at Dairy Farm Lane. Our facilities were inspired by teachers’ inputs and you will realise very quickly how much great work you can do with these facilities!
