EtonHouse is an international school catering from early years to senior years students with multiple convenient locations.
Well-regarded for its high-quality international education and close-knit communities, it offers children a personalised learning environment. Its IB Primary Years, IGCSE Secondary Years and IB Diploma (subject to approval) in the high school years empower students to take ownership of their learning, putting the spotlight on their ideas and creations.
EtonHouse ensures a highly individualised approach. For instance, at EtonHouse International School @ Orchard, students have the option to take the Cambridge IGCSE subjects when they are ready – either in Year 9, 10 or 11 – rather than all of the subjects at the end of Year 11. The goal? To allow students to thrive and better prepare for their exams.
EtonHouse is known for its second-language programmes and ESL support. It is the first international school in Singapore to offer a primary dual-language programme in English and Chinese. Students are also offered second language programmes in Hindi, Japanese and Spanish. EtonHouse is also expanding its preschool Chinese Immersion programme at Robertson Walk and 717 Mountbatten.
The school’s ethos centres around pastoral care within its campuses, developed through rich interactions between its staff and students.
In partnership with Oxford Summer Courses, during summer 2020, selected EtonHouse students will be offered exclusive scholarships to attend courses in the U.K., where they will get to immerse in the English culture and make friends!
“When we first arrived in Singapore, my two daughters, 4 and 8 years old, did not speak
English, and it was their first time moving away from our home country. We were all very excited and anxious. The language programme and friendly family environment at EtonHouse was a fantastic help to get the girls comfortable. The staff went above and beyond. Six months after starting school, my children were speaking English, having play dates and loving school. EtonHouse has helped us settle in Singapore in a beautiful way.” – Natacha Fernandes, mother of Maria, Year 6, and Margarida, Year 3
