David Edwards, head of the school, used to be the headmaster of St Kilda Road Campus, the largest and oldest campus of Wesley College in Australia, where he managed more than 1,600 students and nearly 600 employees.
The design of the campus was undertaken by CPG, a leading Singaporean architectural firm, with architects who graduated from the Harvard Graduate School of Design. It retains the site's original mountain and forest landscape to the fullest extent. A track-and-field ground and a football field have been built on the mountaintop.
In addition, the school is equipped with an indoor sports hall, a library, an auditorium for 800 people, a 50-meter Olympic pool, and a 20-meter learner pool. The boarding house boasts contemporary-style bathrooms, kitchenettes, lounges, and designated group study areas.
