LET'S GO

The majority of international schools in Singapore have an academic calendar that runs from June/July to August/September. However, there is also a small choice of international schools that start in January, in line with the January to December academic calendar of Singapore’s government-run schools and the Southern Hemisphere.

Australian International School (AIS), Middleton International School (Tampines), Middleton International School (Upper Bukit Timah), Dimensions High School, Integrated International School (IIS), and The Grange Institution all begin their academic year in January 2021.

Other schools on this list include SJI International, Hwa Chong International School and the Anglo-Chinese (International) School). These three local international schools are managed by the MOE, but they are privately funded and have the freedom to set their own curricula and fees. While at least half of the students must be Singaporean, these schools tend to have a very international student feel with a, relatively, high number of expatriates.

All these schools can offer an advantage for parents with other children in the local education system, as they share similar school holidays; for example, the long vacation is always taken from December to January. It also means that students sit their IBDP in November, with results being published in January (or in December from 2020 onwards).
