Middleton is one of the largest campuses in a growing shortlist of international schools offering an affordable education. 

The school has significantly lower fees than other Singapore schools whilst offering a broad, well-regarded, international curriculum including modern foreign language options and a range of extra-curricular activities.

Middleton offers a solid but stripped back curriculum, where families can choose to pay extra for Hindi or Chinese classes, after-school activities, and swim lessons – they have the choice to pay for what some families may regard as less-important subjects. With its glass-fronted classrooms, there’s a great sense of transparency and collaboration at Middleton. It’s a school where teachers will share ideas, students are not hiding behind solid walls, and the principal is frequently spending time in class.

Middleton offers a rigorous, solid IPC curriculum where parents may choose the optional extras that they believe are most important for their children; there's a strong focus on social and emotional learning, including mindfulness and student wellbeing programmes, in addition to the academic. The general feedback from parents is that Middleton is a friendly, warm community where the principal knows every child by their name.
