Uniform Update
Posted 15/06/2018 11:00AM

After a long and an inclusive process, we are pleased to inform you about the results of the refreshed student uniforms.

The process
Our brand consultant, Tangible, put together a series of community engagement workshops from November 2017 to January 2018. These workshops engaged a range of stakeholders from the school community and sought feedback on the design and fabric choices for the refreshed uniform. The stakeholders engaged included the parent representatives, staff representative council, school shop, and student councils. In these workshops, the groups were presented options, voted on their preference and made recommendations.

In late February 2018, Tangible presented the final design and fabric results to the Senior Management Team who supported and approved the combined results of the stakeholders. This brought a formal end to the design and fabric process. The Senior Management Team then decided that a tender process was essential to ensure the community received the best terms for the refreshed uniform. In April 2018, the Finance and Administration department commenced a tender process where two other vendors were invited to submit their tenders. By May 2018, Shanghai Uniform emerged as the best option and was selected as our uniform vendor.

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.
