Our School Campuses


Top international school facilities for excellent learning

The German European School Singapore is ranked among the top international schools in Singapore and has two campuses located near the Bukit Timah and Bukit Batok Nature Reserves respectively. Our modern campuses are situated amongst lush greenery, creating a pleasant and stimulating learning environment while also connecting our students with nature and the appreciation of the local habitat. Our campuses are equipped with state-of-the-art facilities in order to provide the best atmosphere for future learning.

Our learning facilities on both campuses comprise of classrooms, language classrooms, science labs, art rooms, design technology classrooms, a Global School Classroom, IT labs, libraries, canteens, first aid offices, school shops, main halls, sports halls, swimming pools, and playgrounds.

Overall, each campus caters for approximately 750 students from the German Section, as well as from the English-speaking IB Section. The Pre-School has students at both campuses depending on their age group.

Main Campus

The Main Campus caters to our Secondary students and the Kindergarten and is located at Bukit Tinggi (close to the Swiss Club and the British Club) which is also surrounded by nature. The Sports Hall and the Swimming Pool are on the grounds of the Swiss Club and are accessible via a scenic jungle trail that the students love to explore.


Junior School Campus

The Junior School Campus at Jalan Jurong Kechil is where our Pre-Primary and Primary School students are located. The campus has a lot of open space for the Pre-Primary and Primary School students to run and play during break times. This spacious campus that is set against lush greenery is quite unique amongst the top primary schools in Singapore. Twice a year the Junior School Campus is the venue for our community festivities such as the International Summer Party and the Christmas Bazaar where the whole GESS community comes together and celebrates its diversity and close-knit relationship.


New Campus

In 2018 we will move to our brand new and purpose built school building at Dairy Farm Road where all students will be united on one campus. Please find more information about our new Campus Project 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.
