English schools in Asia
Dover Court Preparatory School, registered with the Singapore Ministry of Education, is owned and managed by International Preparatory Schools (Pte.) Ltd., a company incorporated in the Republic of Singapore.
Currently there are 900 students on roll encompassing some 57 different nationalities.
Both the school and the company were founded more than thirty years ago by the late Chairman, Mr Ernest Alliott, who, prior to that, had been a British Government Headmaster in Singapore for many years during which time he was a well-known and active participator in educational research and development on the international scene. Mr Alliott was the author of the series of textbooks “Ways to Mathematics” published by Longmans and he also contributed to the development of a number of multi-media approaches with several major publishers in the United States.
Our developmental aims during the past two decades have been those of constant improvement to a high degree of excellence and quality. We believe that Dover Court is one of the finest schools of its kind in South East Asia and, not wishing to be accused of complacency, I hasten to add that we work hard every day to make it even better through a policy of strong re-investment in capital projects, equipment and personnel training. Recent major investments were in the construction of a swimming pool complex with changing rooms and spectator facilities at a cost of $1.5m, the building of a new power substation at a cost of $1m and the construction of a 6-lane running track and soccer pitch at a cost in excess of $600,000.
