Established in 1995, Chatsworth is a mid-sized, private K-12 international school in Singapore. We are an IB world school, a member of East Asian Regional Council of Overseas Schools (EARCOS), is Edutrust certified (Singapore’s quality certification scheme) and Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) accredited. As a three programme IB world school, we offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) PYP, MYP and DP curriculum to students of approximately 50 nationalities, ages 3-18.
A non-selective school, Chatsworth focuses on the holistic development of each individual student and prepares students to either enter universities around the world or to transfer to international and national system schools as their families move on from Singapore. An extensive and supportive English as an Additional Language Programme (EAL) caters to the needs of those students who are not yet completely fluent in English. Our learning technologies are progressive and grounded in 21st century learning: we are an Apple and Google school with a 1:1 laptop program running from Year 4 upwards. Our school has a friendly, family feel and Chatsworth is known for its strong community spirit.
At Chatsworth, we believe in the potential of every student who walks through our gates. We see it as our purpose to stir and awaken individual ambitions, and we strive to empower our students by providing the foundation on which they can build a hope-filled future and become people they envision themselves to be.
We believe that education doesn’t just happen in classrooms, but within the holistic school experience and our interactions as a unified community.
We believe in anchoring our students in a warm, friendly, supportive environment where they feel encouraged and inspired to learn.
We enable students to discover and pursue their personal interests.
We inculcate honesty, respectfulness and compassion, in our community where everyone has the right to be heard and valued.
Above all, we take to heart our mission to inspire, educate and enlighten as we work together as an internationally-minded, diverse, inclusive community to create the best learning experience for our students.
