What is the Global Schools Foundation?

Based on the pillars of excellence, meritocracy and values in education, Global Schools Group (GSG) endeavours to nurture future-ready and responsible citizens. Established in 2002, the Singapore-based organisation has received national and international recognition for excellence in school education.

Following high standards in governance, established academic criteria and well-administered management processes, GSF offers quality education through its international network of schools, sport academies and cultural centres spread across Asia and Middle East.

History of GSF and OWIS

OWIS was acquired by GSF in 2015, and this allowed us to widen our outreach to the international student community. Since then, we’ve built three new campuses. Our OWIS Nanyang campus welcomed its first students in January 2018 after we successfully competed against 11 other K-12 international schools to win a tender offered by Singapore’s Economic Development Board for our Nanyang school site. We started our second campus in the East of Singapore in January 2020 at Mountbatten.

GSF Today

GSF has grown tremendously since its humble beginnings in 2002. To carry out our shared mission, the OWIS leadership team collaborates with the GSF team in multiple areas of synergy:

Governance. We strive to follow best practices as we seek not only to achieve our goals but also those of GSF.

Efficiency in day-to-day operations. Optimising our management procedures in areas such as accounting, finance and IT infrastructure enables us to make the best use of available resources.

Educational excellence. For each of our campuses, our Academic and Examination Board establishes rigorous academic standards. Each of our schools caters to a distinct community, and our programmes are tailored accordingly.

Advisors to OWIS

GSF also provides advisors to OWIS:

Global Schools Foundation is committed to maintaining high standards in governance, curriculum quality and management. To consistently ensure best practices in teaching and learning, we invite key stakeholders to work with the board to improve OWIS and GSF. Their feedback helps us incorporate policies and practices that have established us as leaders in international education.

The mission of GSF parallels our vision for OWIS: to prepare students to become dynamic global leaders of the future. We look forward to working together to fulfil our shared vision of providing a well-rounded education that brings out the best in each of our students, allowing them to reach their full potential.
