Invictus International School will open its second campus within Singapore in Sentosa in August 2019, and is currently enrolling children aged six to eight years in Grades 1 and 2.

Invictus International School is offering expat families living in Sentosa a more affordable choice of international education. This popular primary school, which offers a ‘back to basics’ education for annual fees of $17,000, is opening its second Singapore campus in August 2019.

Invictus opened the doors of its Bukit Merah-based campus for the first time in August 2016, offering just 75 places for children in Grades 1 and 2, aged six to eight years. In 2017, it relocated to a new campus in Dempsey Hill where it offers classes for just under 200 students in Grades 1-6. The new Sentosa campus will open for Grades 1 and 2 only, and students will then transfer to Dempsey Hill for Grades 3-6.

The school says:" A spokespersons for Invictus said: "Our Sentosa campus is an excellent choice for expatriates living on the island to send their young children joining Grade 1 and 2 because it minimises stress from long distance commuting to and from school, and allows the younger children to learn in a familiar and conducive environment." 

As well as remaining one of Singapore’s smallest schools, Invictus is one of only a few schools to offer the International Primary Curriculum (IPC).

The school says: "Sentosa campus offers the same IPC curriculum as the Dempsey Hill campus, so the older children can integrate seamlessly into Grade 3 classes at Dempsey Hill by the time they graduate from Grade 2."

Back to basics
Invictus has received widespread media coverage, not only for its low school fees but also for its ‘back to basics’ style of education. Founded by South African entrepreneur John Fearon (a parent who felt so disgruntled with the cost of education in Singapore that he decided to found his own school), Invictus offers a private education without the frills.

In the words of founding principal Mary Ann Davies, the school believes that quality education is simple.

We don’t believe that this simplicity needs the embellishment of a multitude of expensive out of classroom experiences for our children.

Instead, it claims to concentrate on learning within the classroom, and leaves the extra-curricular activities at the parents’ front door.

As a dedicated primary school rather an all-through school, the question parents may ask is where will my child go next? Some will prefer this small and intimate environment for young learners, others may only be here for the primary years anyway. The school is also fully aware that some families use Invictus as a 'holding school' while they wait to get a place at their preferred school.

Admission and fees 
There is a standard annual fee of $17,000 for all years, which is payable in five instalments throughout the year; this is really handy if you need to budget. Are there plenty of hidden fees to surprise you though? Thankfully, no. Budget for an additional $2,700 to cover the assessment test, academic field trips and uniform, and an optional $2,000 for IT equipment and $2,000 for co-curricular activities.

If you are the owner or the principal of the school and note any inaccuracies, or would like to update data, you can now open an account with us. You will also be able to add admissions availability per year group, and advertise current job vacancies. This is a free service.
