GESS Volleyball GirlsVolleyball: It was a busy first couple of days in 2018 with three games each for both teams. Boys and girls played side-by-side in all of these fixtures and delivered in unison: two wins and one loss for both teams, respectively, and both still have chances to grab some medals.

Spirits continue to be high within the team and they are confident they can continue their fantastic form at Nexus this Wednesday.

GESS Football BoysFootball: Our football ladies had a successful week as both teams managed to win in their match-ups against Dulwich (6:0, Team B) and UWC East (4:2, Team A). The 14U boys’ Team B has had a rough start so far with two losses, whereas Team A’s first game against Tanglin Trust School ended in a 1:1 draw.

GESS Basketball BoysBasketball: Our 19U boys lost a dramatic encounter against NPS and the 16U, too, suffered a defeat in this year’s first game against Chatsworth. The young ones from our 12U boys’ team, however, made up for it and delivered a smashing victory over Tanglin Trust.

GESS Swimming TeamSwimming: Our swimming teams at both campuses have been provided with new GESS gear. They indeed look good and both squads are now eager to show off at the upcoming ACSIS swim events.

IB Curriculum

The English speaking European Section of GESS is a fully fledged International Baccalaureate World School, and one of the few in the world who are authorised to deliver the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the Diploma Programme (IBDP).

Since opening in 2005, the European Section has grown rapidly to become a school with a reputation for quality education with a strong community feel. We now have over 600 students. The vast majority of our students are European passport holders, for whom GESS represents a vital connection with home. Students are thus provided with a safe, friendly and familiar environment in which they are challenged to thrive as they grow into independent and responsible global citizens.

Our academic and pastoral programmes are designed to support this demographic and ultimately to prepare our students for returning to Europe or for entry into European universities. To this end we endeavor to support mother tongue language acquisition so that our students do not lose this vital connection with their home culture. Fortunately, given the high entry requirements into European schools and colleges, this also means that our students are especially well prepared for study all over the world, particularly North America, the UK and Australia.

The Pre-School department provides education from 18 month to 6 years in either English or German. Children are placed in groups according to their age.


German Curriculum

Since the school was founded in 1971, the school has evolved into a school with two sections. As an accredited “Excellent German School Abroad”, the German Section of the German European School Singapore (GESS) offers all major German school leaving certificates. The European Section is an authorized IB World School offering education in English across all three IB programmes.

The German Section supports the students to develop their German roots. We give them wings for the linguistic demands of a globalized world through our differentiated English programme from grade 1 onwards. In secondary school some subjects are taught in English. Our students are benefitting from numerous bonding activities and have additional space to enjoy the internationality of the school.

Our Pre-School department provides education from 18 month to 6 years in either English or German. Children are placed in groups according to their age.
