Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Raffles Institution!

We celebrated our 200th birthday in 2023 and proudly stand as the oldest school in Singapore. Beyond our rich history, what truly defines us is our dynamic school culture, forward-looking curriculum, and the indomitable Team Raffles spirit. 

Our students and staff form a community defined by robust collegial bonds, a shared commitment to excellence, and a dedication to contributing our best to the educational fraternity and society at large. 

As an educational institution for high ability students aged 13 to 18 years old, we are steadfast in our commitment to fostering a learning environment where bright young minds can thrive and flourish. 

Rafflesians are disciplined and capable, but also fun-loving, passionate, and talented in a wide range of domains. Their potential to contribute to the progress and well-being of the world is boundless. 

We focus on welcoming students from diverse backgrounds and nurturing their character and strengths, in the belief that any bright and talented student deserves an opportunity to benefit from the unique Rafflesian experience that will position them well to contribute to society. 

Looking ahead, these principles remain integral to the Raffles Programme, even as we look ahead to how the school needs to innovate and evolve to prepare our students for the future of learning and work, in a world of accelerating change and unpredictability, but also one of great opportunity.

As Raffles Institution steps into this future, we welcome your support and partnership in shaping our students into the leaders of tomorrow, who will help usher in a better age for Singapore and the world. 

Auspicium Melioris Aevi.
