School Bus


Safety and Reliability in Transportation

GESS has a local school transport provider, who provides coverage to the main island of Singapore. All seats in every bus are fully equipped with safety belts and have bus attendants on board. The children will be picked up at your home and brought back safely every day to your doorstep or to your nearest possible pick up point at your house. In addition, the school bus service also offers home drop off after the Co-curricular activities (CCA). Registration for bus service can be done directly upon school registration, but is possible at any other time as well.


Fares and Transportation Zones

The fares are calculated based on One Map and categorised into zones from the premises of German European School Singapore, Main Campus on 72 Bukit Tinggi Road or Junior School Campus on 300 Jln Jurong Kechil, Singapore. We have also published new zone areas from the new Dairy Farm Campus which will be effective starting August 2018. Before deciding on your housing location, please contact the Bus Manager to enquire about possible bus service to your new home (as service is dependent on demand). The Transport Service Request form can be found here.

Students can be picked up and dropped off at home within the school bus zones. Information about the zones for Main Campus, Junior School Campus, the Dairy Farm Campus (starting August 2018) and the pricing structure 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.
