EtonHouse, which has several campuses across Singapore, opened Middleton International School in January 2017. Fees are capped at $19,260 a year – payable on four instalments – at this primary school for seven to 11-year-olds. The school follows the English National Curriculum for English, Science and humanities, the Singapore Ministry of Education standards for maths and Chinese, and International Primary Curriculum (IPC).
It’s worth bearing in mind that there are larger class sizes of 28, and students need to travel to other EtonHouse schools for sports and co-curricular activities. Based in Bukit Timah, facilities are limited to a library, performing arts studio, IT labs, and indoor and outdoor playgrounds.
What the school says:
“We feel the need to offer an affordable international school programme founded on academic rigour and a strong bilingual foundation. The school can cut operating costs through relatively lower rent, using external spaces for sports and other co-curricular activities, and economies of scale from running many schools in Singapore”.
