A very well regarded British independent school plans to open a primary campus in Bukit Timah with annual tuition fees of $25,000. The Perse School Singapore is slated to open in 2020 for up to 480 students aged six to 11 years. The new school, which is due to enrol students from early next year, will follow the Cambridge International Primary Curriculum combined with elements from the Perse Prep curriculum. There are plans to extend to a secondary school in the future.

The Perse School Singapore will be founded by a partnership between Chip Eng Seng’s wholly owned subsidiary CES Cambridge (CESC) and The Perse School Cambridge International (TPSCI). The Perse will open a second international campus in Shanghai, The Perse School Suzhou, in September 2020. Both schools are expected to build on the success of The Perse (pictured above), an independent day school for girls and boys aged 3-18 years located in Cambridge, UK, which regularly achieves some of the best exam results in the country. Commenting on the new school, Chip Eng Seng says:

“The Perse School’s emphasis on quality education both inside and outside the classroom and providing a nurturing pastoral care environment also resonates with the company’s vision for the elementary school

“In addition, the company intends for the elementary school to be a relatively affordable international school, which is in line with The Perse School’s longstanding commitment to delivering an outstanding education whilst keeping a downward pressure on fee increases.” 

The Perse School will be the third new international school to open in Singapore in 2020; both Brighton College and North London Collegiate School (NLCS), will open a campus in the country in August 2020. Brighton College is expected to follow the English national curriculum, while NLCS Singapore will be an all-through, co-ed day school offering the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the IB Diploma.

The three schools join a growing number of international schools offering a very 'British' education in Singapore; both NLCS and The Perse School will be competing against the well-established Dulwich College (Singapore). With annual tuition fees of around $25,000, The Perse School, will however be significantly cheaper than its rivals and many other top-tier schools in Singapore where average fees can reach $39,000.
