SINGAPORE: New international school in Jurong to offer lower fees

A new international school charging lower fees will open in January next year to cater to demand from expatriates looking for cheaper options.

One World International School (OWIS) will start a new Nanyang campus for students aged 3 to 18. The campus will be able to take in 1,200 students.

School fees for kindergarten and primary school pupils will start from $17,000 a year and will not exceed $20,000 yearly for the higher grade levels. This is about 40 per cent cheaper than the average fees at top-end international schools in Singapore.

OWIS' new school will offer the International Baccalaureate programme at the primary school and diploma levels, as well as Cambridge's International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE), the equivalent of the O-level programme.

The 3.2ha campus will also house a "nature kindergarten", meant to be a natural learning environment for children aged between three and six. The kindergarten programme is open to both local and international students.

There will also be facilities for entrepreneurship, performing and visual arts, as well as technology and robotics. Classrooms will be equipped with e-learning technology.

Parents can view the Nanyang campus from 15 October 2017. Classes for the first year will start on 2 January 2018.

How does this affect the client?

The new school follows the recent opening of two other international schools that charge lower fees. This is a positive development for expatriates in Singapore, considering that in other countries a trend of increasing fees is observed.
