Admissions Guide 2020/21 - Chatsworth International School
    For more than 25 years, Chatsworth International School has been offering an exceptional, truly international
    education in Singapore while maintaining affordable fees. A product of a handful of teachers and students
    founding the school in Upper Serangoon in 1995, Chatsworth has now moved to a permanent home in Bukit
    Timah, surrounded by a beautiful natural rainforest environment.

    As an IB World School offering the PYP, MYP and DP curriculum, Chatsworth provides each student with a
    challenging academic experience. With foundations in traditional teaching and learning practices coupled
    with 21st Century learning skills, our programme is tailored for an individualised and balanced education for
    every student.

    Chatsworth’s teaching staff are dedicated, highly qualified and come from all over the globe. With a diverse
    teaching staff from over 20 nationalities, we ensure that our curriculum holds the best of what the world has
    to offer. With a student body of 50+ nationalities, we are a truly international school.

         We are one, but we are many, and from all the lands on Earth we come. We
        share our dreams, and sing with one voice, I am, you are, we are international

                                                                            - Chatsworth School Song

    Our small class sizes allow students to be heard and express themselves, gain confidence, think critically
    and globally and be recognised for their individual talents while at the same time maintaining our overall
    importance of community. Our overall Schoolwide Learner Outcomes (SLOs) state that Chatsworth Learners
    are: Principled, Balanced, Global Communicators and Thinkers. We say ‘Chatsworth learners’ because this
    includes everyone within our community, including staff and parents, too.

    I consider myself privileged to serve as Head of School here at Chatsworth, with our strong reputation
    for community, pastoral care and holistic education. I encourage you to visit our school, interact with our
    community and experience, first-hand, why we have students graduate every year who joined us in early
    years, why we consistently receive full accreditation cycles from WASC, the IBO and EduTrust, and why I, and
    many staff, have remained here at Chatsworth for well over a decade.
