A member of the world-renowned Dulwich College International (DCI) family of schools, Dulwich College (Singapore) is a leading school in Singapore with ambition to become one of the very best international schools in the world.  The College has gone from strength to strength since it first opened its doors in 2014 and now delivers a first-class education to 2,600 students aged 2-18.

The new Head of Senior School will have strategic and operational oversight of a large, high-performing school of 1,200 students.  2020 saw the graduation of the College’s first IB cohort and the appointee will build on an existing strong platform to continue the Senior School’s successful growth and development, including the opening of a new $40 million state-of-the-art IB centre.  This is a unique opportunity to contribute to the success of an outstanding school on a clear upward trajectory with bold ambitions for its future.  For individuals aspiring to broader global leadership roles, this post offers an excellent opportunity to develop as a leader in a school, setting a course for educational excellence in South East Asia. 

The appointee will bring a track record of successful leadership experience ideally gained as a Head or as a highly experienced Deputy Head.  An innovative educationalist, s/he will hold in balance the heritage and traditions of Dulwich with the global perspective and cultural awareness of Dulwich College (Singapore).  Strong organisational management skills and strategic capability are crucial, as is the gravitas and interpersonal skills required to engage successfully across the breadth of the College’s internal and external stakeholders.
