A new 'affordable' school is due to open in Singapore this August. Located in the north east region, The Grange Institution is a primary school with all-inclusive annual tuition fees of $15,840.
These fees are nearly half of that charged by other international schools in Singapore.
The Grange will offer Years 1 to 6 for five to 11 year-olds, and teaching will follow the Cambridge international primary curriculum.
Located on a three-acre plot of land along Yio Chu Kang Road, which links Serangoon to Ang Mo Kio, The Grange is a single form entry school. Facilities at the low-rise campus include a library, sustainable garden, and music and art studios.
The Grange is owned by Crestar Education Group, the parent company of Kinderland, which has a large network of pre-schools in Singapore. This will be the group's first international primary school.
"We have had countless enquiries from parents over the years about pathways beyond our pre-school service. Many of them have expressed a desire to see the culture and creative philosophy in Kinderland continue into the next learning phase of their children.
"The aim of The Grange is to provide such continuity into the primary years for parents looking for an international programme for their children."
