Here's a well-established international school that has plenty of charm and tradition; it has a strong academic record; and offers a well-rounded education with a strong focus on athletics and the arts. The school is delivering a strong IB programme, from early years through to Grade 12, at a moderate fee of $24-33,000, which makes the IB a more affordable option compared to other schools. It is IB all the way here, and the school has many years' experience of delivering the IB and a proven commitment to the programme. 

Chatsworth is one of the few international schools in Singapore to offer the full IB MYP eAssessment examination, leading to the award of the IB MYP course results or the IB MYP Certificate. 

The school believes that it is essential for students to have a strong foundation in their own mother tongue language. It encourages this development through an ethos that celebrated linguistic diversity within its international community, and supports multiple languages through a mother tongue language programme that is aligned with the IB from Years 7 to 13.

The general feedback from parents is that Chatsworth’s strengths are its small size, inclusive community and family spirit. Parents frequently refer to happy children who are thriving because of excellent teaching within a nurturing environment – and are developing into independent learners (which is what we’re looking for from an IB school) because of it.
