With four new schools opening in Singapore this year, the battle to attract new students is underway. Invictus International School, which is one of the most affordable schools in Singapore, is opening a new secondary and bilingual primary school in September 2020. And, as part of its efforts to boost enrolment for the 2020-21 academic year, the school is offering parents a ‘sweetener’ discount of more than $5,000.

Invictus, which currently has campuses in Dempsey Hill (Grades 1-8) and Sentosa (Grades 1-2), offers a low-cost ‘back to basics’ education with annual tuition fees of $17,000. This is considerably cheaper than most international schools in Singapore. It plans to open its third Singapore campus, Invictus (Centrium), with a primary school offering a Mandarin immersion programme from Grades 1-6 and a secondary school from Grades 7 to 12 (11-18 years). Subject to government approval, Invictus will open this centrally located campus in Farrer Park in August 2020.

While financial incentives for new schools are not a new idea, Invictus is certainly offering one of the ‘cheapest’ deals in town. Its early bird specials include a two-year discounted annual tuition fee of $11,900 per year for Grades 1-6 in the bilingual primary programme at the Centrium campus; this is $5,100 cheaper than the standard $17,000 fee.

For older students, parents can pay $13,160 per year for two years for Grades 7 and 8, and save $5,640 on the annual fee of $18,800; students must enrol at the Dempsey campus before March 31, 2020 to qualify.

As you’d expect, there are terms and conditions. The offer is only available to the first 50 students who enrol for each offer before March 31, 2020; students must commit to two years minimum at the school.

The new Invictus school will be located across three floors of the Centrium Square mixed-use development. The school is described as having "spacious classrooms, each with a maximum capacity of 25 students per classroom:" While this modern campus will feel worlds apart from the school’s charming Dempsey campus in a heritage building, it is well-located for sports facilities and the MRT.

In line with Invictus' existing primary schools, teaching will follow the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) in Grades 1-6; a key difference will be that instruction will be in both English and Mandarin. The bilingual immersion programme will offers classes in English and Mandarin on alternate days, with maths being taught in English only. 

Grades 7-12 will follow the International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC), and then switch to the UK curricula for IGCSEs and A Levels. Invictus will be one of only a few schools in Singapore to offer A Levels; others include Tanglin Trust, DPS International School, and Middleton (Tampines) (from 2023).
