What are qualities and characteristics that define your school and its students?

Insworld is a diverse multinational community of learning. We have local and international students working together in an inclusive and empathetic atmosphere. Our aim is to promote interest, engagement and respect for other people and other cultures, as our students work together to prepare for the next stage of their education either in Singapore or internationally. To date, we have had students from over 45 different nationalities. Our commitment to a diverse and empathetic community equips students with the capabilities to be tolerant, receptive and accepting towards people of different cultures and traditions.

Insworld actively encourages its teachers to promote key aspects of social, moral and cultural development within the context of lessons as well as in and around the school. We want to be more than a good school for IGCSE or A-Level education. We want to be a community in which our key values of integrity, social responsibility, diversity and leadership are upheld and promoted. We see this as an essential part of education in Singapore.

How many nationalities are represented in your school? How international would you say your school is?

To date, we have had students from over 45 different nationalities.

What is the teacher: student ratio in your school?

1:8

If external examinations and assessments are part of your curriculum, which ones do you offer?

We prepare students for Pearson Edexcel International Advanced Level, GCE A-Level, and IGCSE examinations. All our curriculums are British-based and are benchmarked to UK standards.

Describe your school's approach to education and teaching?

Insworld is a private school in Singapore. This gives us the freedom to organize our work in the way we think best matches our students’ needs. For this reason we choose only to work with small classes (4-12 students). This allows us to focus on the learning needs of each student as an individual, while maintaining a proper classroom dynamic and a clear focus on academic objectives.

As a private school in Singapore, we can determine our own approach to how we work with our students. Our aim is to combine the best of Asian and Western approaches to education. We want to encourage students to be active participants in every lesson at every level, while maintaining a disciplined focus on key learning objectives. What sets us apart from other private schools in Singapore is that we can, and do, adapt our work to suit the ways our students study. We know our students better, so we know better exactly what they need to learn and how to help them learn it.

Insworld offers high levels of support for students outside the classroom. We appoint a Personal Tutor for each student who will monitor all aspects of that student’s progress. Students meet their Personal Tutors every week. This is an important opportunity to give the school feedback, and to raise concerns. This is very important for international students who may be new to studying in Singapore and the way Insworld chooses to work. We can also arrange, at no extra cost, one-to-one sessions with subject teachers if a student needs extra support with a particular aspect of their study.

As a result, students learn quickly and efficiently. This can mean a significant saving in cost and time. At the same time, their passions and strengths are recognised and nurtured to full potential in our diverse community. Insworld students gain an international perspective on the issues around them through interacting with other unique individuals from a variety of backgrounds.

Is there a school uniform?

Yes

How often is the more formal feedback such as reports and parent/teacher meetings?

Weekly reports and termly parent/teacher meetings.

Do you offer EAL or TEFL support for those students where English is not their first language?

English for Academic Study
