Statement on the closure of British Council Pre-school in Tampines, Singapore

It is with sincere regret that we are announcing the closure of the British Council Pre-school in Tampines, Singapore. Our last day of operation will be the last day of term, Friday, 2 December 2022. 

This is a decision that we have not taken lightly and have given thorough and careful consideration; however, our current premises at Tampines Concourse will need to be returned to the Singapore Land Authority by 31 December 2022. Despite an extensive search for new premises, we have been unable to secure a suitable venue that meets the requirements for a full-time Pre-school. We now find ourselves in the position where we are unable to continue to serve our students to the standards that we and their parents both expect. Therefore, we have taken the difficult decision to close our school.

We are very proud to have been in the Tampines community for more than a decade and to have had the opportunity to support the learning needs of children during this period. We are truly grateful for the trust that our students and their parents have placed in us and we are committed to delivering all our classes and published events until the end of this academic year. We will not be accepting new registrations for January 2023.  

Our decision to close the British Council pre-school in Tampines does not impact our other centres and we remain committed to delivering high quality enrichment courses for nursery through to secondary students, and courses for adult learners in Singapore.
