One World International School (OWIS) will open an all-through school in Jurong West for students aged three to 18 at the start of 2018. Annual school fees for kindergarten and primary school pupils will start from $17,000 a year, rising to a maximum of $20,000 for secondary students. With many international schools charging $24,000-47,000, this makes OWIS a much cheaper alternative for expat families.

The new OWIS will offer the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IBPYP) and IB Diploma (IBDP), as well as IGCSEs. The campus, which will take in 1,200 students from all nationalities, is being built in the up and coming area of Jurong. Called OWIS Nanyang, it will be located close to two other international schools, Canadian International School (Jurong East) and Yuvabharathi International School.

This is the second OWIS to open in Singapore. At its all-through East Coast campus in Bedok, annual fees are considerably higher and start from $28,894 for a primary education.

OWIS Nanyang is the latest in a short line of schools offering lower fees to open in Singapore. Invictus International School, which charges annual fees of $15,000 for a private education without the frills and glitzy facilities was set up last year. In January, EtonHouse opened Middleton International School, where fees are capped at $18,000 a year.

There is normally the expectation that schools charging lower fees will offer lesser facilities. However, the 3.2 ha OWIS campus looks set to have state-of-the-art facilities for entrepreneurship, performing and visual arts, and technology and robotics, as well as a ‘nature’ kindergarten for three to six year olds.
