While every parent understands the importance of investing in their child’s education, it can sometimes be a cost that’s hard to bear. Traditionally, parents have had little option but to foot the bill for international school fees ranging between $24,000-47,000. In the past 12 months, however, parents have been offered a more affordable alternative, but there is a trade-off.

The reality is that less expensive schools will usually have fewer facilities. You can't expect planetariums and Olympic-sized swimming pools if you don't want to pay for them. That said, you should expect outdoor play areas and sports facilities within any school. So, be reasonable and decide what you can and can't live without. Do you think the bells and whistles of premiums fee schools are vital for your child, or that a good value education focusing on the classroom is all that really matters?

While in other parts of the world many of the less expensive schools are 'older' with ageing facilities and equipment, several of these budget schools are new kids-on-the-block. You have a choice between Middleton, which stems from a well-established provider with a long alumni; the entrepreneurial vision of Invictus; the offer of state of the art facilities for a moderate fee at One World International School (Nanyang); or the Singapore curriculum at The Open Primary. There is also a choice of well-established Indian schools, which are typically much cheaper than schools offering curriculums from the US, UK and the International Baccalaureate.

Alternatively, local government-run schools are considerably cheaper than international schools.
