Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

North London Collegiate School Ho Chi Minh City is a selective and highly academic co-educational junior school, providing students with the best possible elements of the Vietnamese, NLCS and international curricula, as well as connecting with Vietnamese identity through the dual language teaching approach of subjects, culture, and language.

Fundamental to our ethos at NLCS HCMC is a belief in the importance of developing students’ enjoyment and excitement about their learning through the combination of an ambitious academic education with exceptional pastoral care, and a range of subject-led enrichment activities that cater for every possible interest and talent.

Everyone matters at NLCS schools; every individual is well-known, is valued for who they are, and their contribution is recognised and celebrated. The opportunities for leadership, for public speaking, for performance, for creative expression, and sports are many and varied, and coupled with our focus on supporting the individual. The result is that students feel happy, and are given the confidence to run their own race – to embrace challenges, to be grounded, resilient and to flourish in whatever walk of life they may choose.

NLCS HCMC will be the fourth addition to the NLCS Family of Schools, following the successful establishment of our schools in Jeju, Dubai and Singapore. At all NLCS schools, we believe in growing a deeply interconnected Family of Schools in order to provide our students with opportunities to develop international links, to work with and understand people from different cultures and to broaden their own perspectives.

Our purpose-built campus, located in the city centre in District 3, has been designed to NLCS specifications in order to ensure world-class facilities for students and the best possible learning environment for your child.

Teaching approach of the school

As a selective and highly academic co-educational junior school, we teach to the top and we provide the support for students to achieve their highest potential with the two to three professionals in each classroom. We're progressive in our teaching method to provide students with choice and agency. We believe that students learn best when they interested in what they are learning. We also believe in depth of subject knowledge over breadth of general knowledge.
