Outstanding Reputation

Outstanding reputation since 1980

As a young teacher, Lorna taught in the UK before coming to Malaysia and Singapore to teach with the British Armed Forces. Later she taught at international schools in Singapore and became a School Principal in 1971.  In 1980, Lorna Whiston opened the first Lorna Whiston centre with the aim of improving the standard of English language among Singaporean students.

Since then, Lorna Whiston Schools has built a reputation for high-quality education and teaching excellence across Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong with our signature English Enrichment and Speech & Drama programmes, as well as our Preschools.  

With decades of experience operating within the education industry, we are a thought leader in the field of education.
