LET'S GO

There’s good news for parents as more primary and secondary places are now available in Singapore for 2022 and 2023. A new low-cost primary school opens in western Singapore next month, followed by an American school in August, and all-through school in the Punggol Digital District (PDD) in 2023, and a British public school by 2025.

Whether you're moving to Singapore or looking at changing schools, these 'new kids on the block'  offer you more choice in terms of curricula, tuition fees, and location.

Middleton International School (West Coast)



The EtonHouse education group will open its third Middleton International School campus in April 2022. Located in western Singapore, this standalone pre-school and primary school will have annual fees of less than $20,000.

Located next to Haw Par Villa MRT, MIS West Coast will be a mid-sized school for up to 500 students from Nursery 2 through to Grade 5 (four to 11 years). 

Teaching at its three-storey campus in Harbour Drive will follow a Reggio Emilia approach in pre-school and the IPC (International Primary Curriculum). After completing Grade 5, students will be offered a place at Middleton's K-12 Tampines campus, which offers the IMYC (International Middle Years Curriculum), IGCSEs and A Levels. 

This marks EtonHouse's first move into western Singapore, where most international schools are centred around Clementi and Jurong; these include Dulwich College (Singapore), Integrated International School (IIS), International Community School, Japanese School Singapore, and Yuvabharathi International School. 

XCL American Academy



XCL Education will open its second international school in Singapore in August – an American school offering Nursery through to Grade 8 for fees of up to $30,000. XCL American Academy will open in a purpose-built campus in Yishun for 1,500 students, making it the fourth international school in the city to offer a US-based education.

The founding cohort of XCL American Academy will start in August 2022 in a 'foundation campus' at XCL World Academy until its permanent campus is completed. XCL World Academy is a full IB school with the capacity for 1,600 students, although it currently enrols around 975 students.

The new purpose-built campus, located next door to XCL World Academy, is slated to open in August 2023. It will will feature a three-storey library, a Pioneer Town focused on entrepreneurship, multi-purpose hall/gymnasium, and specialist classrooms. Students will also have access to sports and technology facilities at XCL World Academy, including a 50m swimming pool, multi-use sports field, tennis courts, and a 750-seat auditorium.

One World International School (Punggol)



An all-through school for 1,500 students, One World International School (Punggol) is due to open in August 2023.

Opening from Kindergarten through to Grade 12, OWIS Punggol describes itself as a “new-age school” which will be “guided by kindness driven education programmes that promote compassion and a culture of inclusion”.  It will be a technology-driven school with digital lockers, CCTV and facial recognition systems for student attendance, Smartboards in every classroom, and Smart bus terminals.

This is the latest addition to the growing OWIS family of schools in Singapore, which includes the Nanyang campus in Jurong. OWIS is owned by the Global Schools Foundation (GSF), which is headquartered in Singapore. 

Wellington College (Singapore)


Wellington College in the UK

The prestigious UK day and boarding school Wellington College will open a Singapore campus in the next few years in a regional partnership with Singaporean businessman Peter Lim. It is expected to open by 2025.

The new school will join the Wellington College International (WCI) family of schools, which includes schools in China and Thailand, and a first school in India opening in 2023. It will enrol 2,000 students and offer early years, primary and secondary programmes following the English National Curriculum, and culminating in the IB Diploma Programme.

Wellington College joins a growing list of British schools that have set up in Singapore; Dulwich College (Singapore) opened in 2014 and The Perse School, Brighton College and North London Collegiate School all opened Singapore campuses in 2021-22.
