An affordable international school is being set up in the city and will be open in May 2018.

Education group EtonHouse will be setting up the school in Tampines. It will have a capacity for 1,000 students.

According to the StraitsTimes, the new school will be a branch of the Middleton International School in Upper Bukit Timah.

The new school will take in pupils from nursery to Grade 12 and will offer the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE), the equivalent of the O levels, and the International A levels.

The fees for primary will be $15,000 and $19,837 for Grade 12 students. The fees are nearly half of that charged by other international schools in Singapore.

The existing Middleton International opened in Upper Bukit Timah in January 2017, has a capacity of only 125 children at the primary levels, and a waiting list for most levels.

The Tampines school by contrast is an all-through school, spread across 292,000 sq ft, about the size of five football fields. Ng Yi Xian, executive director of EtonHouse International Education Group, told StraitTimes: “Given the size of the new campus - which includes three hard courts and a field - the school will offer a range of sports and co-curricular activities. Xian added he expects a "strong demand" for places.

Besides Middleton International School, there are two other schools that offer education at under $20,000 a year for expat children.

The first to offer lower fees was Invictus International School, which started small in Bukit Merah and has since moved to a bigger, 30,000 sq ft campus in Dempsey Hill, offering grades 1 to 6.

One World International School will open a new campus in Jurong West in January 2018 for 1,200 students aged three to 18.
