Co-Curricular Activities


Discovery - Exploration - Challenge 

The Co-Curricular Activities Programme (CCA) at GESS offers more than 90 CCAs ranging from various sporting and artistic disciplines to social activities and natural sciences that reflect the school's diversity of talents and ideas. It is open for students from Kindergarten up to Grade 12.

The activities, aimed at different age groups, cover a variety of disciplines from Sport, Music, Creative Arts, Performing Arts, Science & Technology and other life-long skills. These activities are considered part of the school’s educational programme, and students have the choice of joining one or two CCAs, giving them an opportunity to develop new talents or to build up existing strengths. The deliberate restriction to one or two CCAs per student leaves enough room for the students to concentrate on homework, test preparation or any other kind of regular educational requirement. More information can be found in the CCA portal.

In addition, GESS offers a Language Enrichment Programme (LEP) for Pre-Primary and Primary students. More information about the LEP can be found here.

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.
