Design Technology Studio


At GESS, we understand that creativity is a critical part of your child’s education. That’s why we foster the imagination of our students, encouraging them to create their own unique products in our award-winning Design Technology Studio. Whether they prefer to learn traditional techniques or use state-of-the-art technology, our Studio is one of the best-equipped school design departments in the region today. Our students are now designing and developing products from prototype to packaging using traditional and modern methods.

How do students benefit from Design Technology?

Students in the Design Technology Studio at international school GESS in SingaporeDesign Technology is an amazing subject. It makes a massive impact on students’ learning as they need to take information they learn from other subjects, especially maths and science, and apply it using logic, the power of analysis, creativity and a good portion of common sense. It is a real crosscurricular subject. For example, students learn what a radius and diameter are in maths and then use that knowledge practically in Design Technology – and sometimes they don’t understand these concepts properly until they apply them practically.

Design Technology is an increasingly popular subject at GESS. Students are getting really passionate about it because they can use all their skills to produce their work independently. Not so long ago, laser printing was not even in its infancy and it was inconceivable that a school would have its own laser printer one day. Technology has changed beyond recognition and children will be better prepared for the future by experiencing Design Technology.

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.
