Here’s why EtonHouse International Schools should be top of mind when you’re looking for quality education in SG.
Now in its 25th year, EtonHouse has constantly ranked as a school of choice for many expat parents, thanks to its diverse and close knit learning communities.
Early-years students are exposed to EtonHouse’s “Inquire-Think-Learn” approach, which is inspired by popular Reggio Emilia methods, and teaches problem-solving and helps to develop critical literacy skills. In addition, EtonHouse offers the globally recognised International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme and IGCSE certificates for primary, secondary and high school students. Find out what makes it such a leader in education.
From humble beginnings at the school’s first Broadrick Road campus, the EtonHouse International Education Group has grown to cater to more than 6,000 students now with 14 campuses across Singapore.
Each school offers a through train pathway, which means your child can easily transition from any EtonHouse preschool near you to a primary or K-12 school at the other campuses. Furthermore, the group also has campuses around the world, which ensures a seamless education experience for your child, should you leave Singapore at some point in the near future.
The secret to the educational group’s success lies in large part to its enterprising founder, Mrs. Ng Gim Choo, whose achievements were recognised in 2019 with the Ernst & Young (E&Y) Entrepreneur of the Year Award in the Education category.
Not only has she set up professional development programmes and training opportunities for her teachers, these programmes are available for teachers hailing from other schools, too. Another benefit of EtonHouse’s schools? Its teacher-student ratios are kept as low as 1:4, to ensure maximum attention for each child.
Its holistic programmes have an excellent track record. Some recent accolades: The first students from the EtonHouse International School Orchard campus were awarded an A* in the recent Cambridge IGCSE Spanish exams, despite the fact that the school was only launched in 2018. Meanwhile, EtonHouse preschoolers are some of the youngest to perform at the annual Singapore Youth Opera showcase.

Come 2020, EtonHouse International School Sentosa is expanding to accommodate students through to Year 6. It will also be expanding its Chinese Immersion Programme to two more campuses, 717 Mountbatten and Vanda. There, children in Pre-Nursery and Nursery 1 will learn entirely in Mandarin, before switching to a bilingual curriculum – with an English and Chinese teacher to guide them from Nursery 2 to Kindergarten 2.
