SINGAPORE: International school that charges lower fees soon will open in Tampines

Expatriates looking for more affordable schooling options for their children will have another choice soon. Education group EtonHouse will open an international school in Tampines in May 2018. The new school can take in up to 1,000 students from nursery to Grade 12.

The school will offer the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE), the equivalent of the O levels, and the International A levels.

Fees will range from $15,000 for primary school pupils, to $19,837 for Grade 12 students. The fees are nearly half of that charged by other international schools in Singapore.

The first to offer lower fees was Invictus International School which was started by an entrepreneur  who faced having to pay $100,000 a year to send his three children to international schools in Singapore.

How does this affect the clients? 

International schools offering lower fees are welcomed especially by localised expatriate parents, for whom the traditional and pricey international schools are no longer affordable.

EtonHouse, as the education group is seen as a provider of quality education. However it is important to note that parents need to read the fine print and understand clearly what the fees will cover. Such activities as drama, music, and any of the creative arts, may incur additional out-of-pocket expenses.
