History

Overseas Family School (OFS) started in September 1991, with classes in grades K1-12.

Situated first at the previous Singapore Teacher Training College, 51 Paterson Rd, always considered a temporary site for the school.

In 2013 Overseas Education Limited was listed on the Singapore Stock Exchange with Overseas Family School Limited as its subsidiary company and sole asset. The purpose of this listing was to finance a new school facility at 81 Pasir Ris Heights.

The new OFS school facility, with extensive, lower level parking, was designed for 5000 and is currently government approved for 4800 students. The project was completed on time, within budget, and approved for occupancy (TOP) in May 2015.

In June 2015 after the end of that school year, OFS moved, on schedule, from Paterson Road to its new campus, where classes commenced in August 2015.

In June 2016, at the end of its first school year in the new premises, OFS completed its 25th year as a foreign system school serving the overseas community in Singapore, with students from over 70 countries attending the school.
