Chatsworth International School is a co-educational school in Singapore for students from kindergarten to Year 13 (Grade 12), aged 3 to 18+. It is an International Baccalaureate World School[1] and is authorised to provide the IB Primary Years Programme (IBPYP), Middle Years Programme (IBMYP) and Diploma Programme (IBDP).

Chatsworth International School is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and is EduTrust certified by the Committee for Private Education (CPE) in Singapore. It is also a member of East Asia Regional Council of Schools (EARCOS), The Principals’ Training Centre (PTC) and Overseas Association for College Admission Counselling (OACAC).

History[edit]

Chatsworth International School opened in January 1995.[2] It is a product of a handful of teachers and students founding the school in Upper Serangoon. In 1998, Chatsworth moved to a centrally located campus off Orchard Road, the original home of the Singapore Chinese Girls’ School, which is designated as a heritage site. Today, the Orchard campus is part of the growing Chatsworth Group of Schools, which also includes an international primary school located on the East of Singapore catering to students from K through Year 6, as well as two Kindergartens running the local, Ministry of Education, curriculum.

Campuses and facilities[edit]

  • Orchard Campus for Kindergarten to Year 6 (Grade 5) located at 37 Emerald Hill Singapore 229313

Curriculum[edit]

Students from K1 to Year 6 (Grade 5) follow the IB Primary Years Programme, where they are engaged actively in their learning whilst being encouraged to think more deeply and take action in their personal lives. Students from Year 7 to 11 (Grade 10) follow the IB Middle Years Programme. The programme emphasises intellectual challenge, encouraging students to make connections between their studies in traditional subjects and the real world. Year 12 and 13 students take the IB Diploma Programme, which is designed to prepare them for further education at the tertiary level.

Beyond the classroom[edit]

Sports is an integral part of the Chatsworth curriculum. The school is an active member of the Athletics Conferences of Singapore International Schools,[4] (ACSIS) where students aged 8 to 19 years old from Singapore’s international schools compete. Students at Chatsworth can choose from sports including badminton, basketball, cross country, football, netball, touch rugby, swimming and ultimate frisbee.

Co-curricular activities (CCAs) are offered for students from Year 1 before and after school. In addition to sports, these include arts, leadership, clubs and special interests. Chatsworth also participates in regional events involving the Arts such as the International Schools Theatre Association (ISTA)[5] events.
