How Chatsworth International School Inspires, Educates and Enlightens
Tucked away amid lush nature and serenity, Chatsworth International School is a conducive place for students to learn, explore and grow. Close to the city centre, yet far away from the drab of the concrete jungle, it provides a nurturing environment for all.
As an established K-12 international school in Singapore, Chatsworth offers a holistic and affordable educational curriculum for children aged three to 18 years old. Since 1995, the institution has adopted the mission to ‘Inspire, Educate and Enlighten’. As an International Baccalaureate (IB) school with a personalised learning approach, we take pride in celebrating the uniqueness of each and every student that comes through our classrooms.
Inspiring Young Minds
The ability to evaluate information, judge and provide value through what we learn, and to have confidence in our own judgments are all important aspects of a critical thinker. At Chatsworth, we do not believe in rote learning. Through our pedagogy of inspiring the young, we strive to create a learning environment designed to stimulate these mental processes and help our students develop their own learning strategies.
Our IB programme is a comprehensive one. From kindergarten to diploma levels, our students undergo a journey of discovery and inquiry. At preschool level, children aged three to five years old are exposed to a world of creativity and stimulation to inspire them to enjoy the learning process and through the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) until year 6. In our Early Childhood Centre, you will find a safe and secure space tailored to our young learners.
As they move beyond the primary school years, the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) fosters the development of skills and academic knowledge – both in the classroom and outdoors. Our students are given ample opportunities to discover their passion and try new things to help them make connections between theory and the real world.
Educating Future Leaders
In Years 12 and 13, Chatsworth focuses on enabling our students to become ever-ready for the vigorous demands of high school and university life, as well as develop skills which are vital to becoming successful adults. For example, our IB High School Diploma Programme opens up a world of experiential learning comprising Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS). Through a range of activities, our school is able to encourage our students to adopt a balanced lifestyle which incorporates creative, physical, and social service pursuits.
One of the key areas of such social service activities is how we conduct service learning alongside our students. It allows them to not only tap on their academic knowledge, but also cultivate a community-oriented mindset to make the world a better place. For example, students can participate in recycling, fund-raising and academic support programmes or even contribute to the food bank.
Apart from cultivating intrinsic values, our Diploma students are also offered the opportunity to undertake and earn a Bilingual Diploma in Singapore. Research has shown that bilingual children grow up to be efficient communicators and have stronger cognitive abilities, so this is one of the ways the school can maximise the potential of each child. Through these activities and initiatives, our students are well equipped to be future-ready and leaders of tomorrow.
As a school which is part of a diverse but close knit community, we are able to create an environment where students feel right at home despite their backgrounds. Here, you will find over 50 different nationalities under one roof and navigate the very same journey. Our culturally responsive teaching is sustainable and helps children make sense of the world around them, far beyond what is actually surrounding them.
Arts, sports, and even nutrition. These are the areas which also make life at Chatsworth so vibrant and engaging. Through the different facets of our wholesome curriculum, our students are able to enjoy the pursuits of creativity and wellness to give them a memorable experience to remember. In fact, we believe that all these will go a long way in building resilient and successful individuals in the years to come.
