Our Vision, Mission & Values

Excellent schools have a clear sense of purpose shared by pupils, staff and parents. The Perse School’s vision is “To Love Learning & Strive For The Greater Good.” Our vision is to create a British International School which brings over 400 years of tradition, values, and educational excellence from Cambridge to Singapore. We encourage a culture of international mindedness, promote respect, and encourage empathy and thoughtfulness. We work hard to ensure that every child is valued as an individual and goes on to develop a life-long love of learning. To realise this vision, The Perse will:

(a) Foster academic excellence through a challenging curriculum, outstanding teaching, and a culture of endeavour, intellectual curiosity and scholarship

(b) Provide a supportive pastoral environment which meets individual needs, and promotes the development of happy, balanced and considerate pupils

(c) Offer a rounded education, rich in extra-curricular opportunities, which develop life skills, character and perspective

(d) Encourage the appreciation of the spiritual dimension to life, and the development of a moral framework

(e) Provide high quality professional development for staff to ensure ongoing personal and institutional improvement.
