  • School Vision

    Thoughtful Leaders

  • School Mission

    We nurture students to become Reflective Thinkers and Caring Citizens who Lead to Serve the Nation and the World.

  • School Philosophy, Culture and Ethos

    In Swiss Cottage, our students learn to be Thoughtful Leaders. They become leaders who are equipped with ethical thinking, managerial competencies, global and local awareness. Most importantly, they develop a heart to care and serve and are grounded in intellectual and character excellence. Swiss staff believes in a Character First Education that provides opportunities for all students to learn and achieve. We see ourselves as nurturers and mentors to our students. We lead, care and inspire each other as colleagues. We seek to engage and collaborate with our partners for the benefit of our students. With these core beliefs, we care for every staff and student. We ensure that every lesson is a good lesson, and that every learning activity is purposeful. We encourage every staff and student to reflect and learn from every opportunity and from each other. Anchored on the Swiss Spirit of Serve with Honour and Lead with Humility, we develop our students to be Thoughtful Leaders who will serve with honour and lead with humility.
