A third new 'affordable' international school has opened in Singapore for the new academic year. Leeds International School has opened its doors to students aged six to nine years; it opens alongside two other new schools including Knightsbridge House International School (KBH) and OWIS Suntec.

Located in Bukit Timah, Leeds International School is a standalone primary school offering a British education for Primary 1-3. It is owned by the Sri Lankan education group, Leeds International Schools, which educates more than 4,000 students in 11 private schools across Sri Lanka. The Singapore campus is the group's first school overseas. It is open to students of all nationalities.

Leeds International School enters Singapore's education market as a low-cost school with annual fees of $15,000. It offers more of a 'no-frills' education compared to many of the state-of-the-art campuses in Singapore, and will be targeting families looking for an affordable English-taught, well-rounded primary years curriculum. 

Leeds International School CEO Sanjeev Kumar says:

"Our goal is not to imitate or compete with the large international schools in the Singapore. Our aim is to be different and in doing so to offer more choice to parents and their children."

Campus facilities include six classrooms, multi-purpose hall, and an activity room; students will travel off-campus to use facilities including a swimming pool, climbing wall, and play areas for basketball and other sports.

Leeds will follow an English rather than the Sri Lankan curriculum offered at its other schools. The three-year curriculum covers English, Maths, science, languages (French/Hindi) and ICT, as well as music, art and craft, and PE. Co-curricular activities include Junior Chef, Origami and Just Dance.

The academic year runs from August to June, and there are four terms.
