I credit my comfort with public speaking and a lot of soft skills to doing Drama at IB - enabling me to explore my individual creative expression, whilst also improving my self-expression.

I would say talk to the children. We did when we came for our tour and they were all beaming telling us how much they loved it there. I always think that's a great indication of what a school is really like.

Pursuing IB in Chatsworth and debating ideas with teachers and friends have prepared me well to think critically on issues making the headlines.

We strongly believe that schools are the academies where children are nurtured and build their permanent personalities. If the foundation is strong, the added values are always groomed.

My favourite subjects are chemistry and biology. Although they can be really challenging, I enjoy learning about how the world around us works at a microscopic level.

What I like about the school is its diversity, being part of a community where everyone comes from a different background yet through communication, respect and tolerance we all learn to get along.

Take everything in and be proud of your accomplishment! Never again will you be part of a community like Chatsworth, so appreciate your final moments there. At the same time, don’t be fearful of the future.

If you are looking for a smaller school where teachers actually “know” your children and are really willing to go the extra mile, then Chatsworth could be the school for you.

Year 6 student

Vedang Jayaram

My favourite subject is PE, since we get to play different games and sports in the Sports Hall and sometimes at The Nest. The thing I like about Chatsworth is the way to get to PE through the forest as Chatsworth is surrounded by trees and forest.

I speak to people from all around the world every day in my current job so that cultural awareness and rapport is much easier to build since I came from an international background.

One of my favourite things about Chatsworth is the community. The smaller size of our school makes it feel more family-like, and everyone is understanding and accepting towards one another.

Art is my favourite subject. I've always loved how I can bring my personal life and experiences into artworks. Art is a way I like to deal with stress and I am always able to be myself on an artwork.

I decided to make some origamis and sell them in profit of ItsRaining Raincoats charity because I knew the migrant workers don't have presents for Christmas.

Chatsworth is a great place if you want to follow the IB program, have a nurturing and caring environment, one where the teachers genuinely care and where your kids will want to go to school every morning!

I speak for my friends when I say that many of our teachers were role models who taught us lessons about life and were always open to offer a hand and ear whenever we faced a problem (be it academic or personal).

Year 6 student

I like the way they (the teachers) teach and the way they help you when you make mistakes. Mistakes help us know we need a little extra help.

Every morning rain or shine, I help to marshall the traffic coming into the campus and being able to meet and greet families is something I find enjoyable too.

I volunteer to help in the school library regularly (when parents are allowed on campus!), which has been a great insight into how the school works (as the IB system is very different to the UK education system).

Tutoring as a community service was very attractive because helping my juniors understand the fundamental concept of mathematics and helping them achieve better grades was very satisfying.

I would like to meet Malala Yousafzai because I learned about child rights and I was interested in it. Also I was surprised by how she fought to get her rights even though she was only a child like me.

I chose Chatsworth based on my interactions with the school administration and human resources on several occasions over a period of time, as well as for the small but international community it offers.

Having moved to Bukit Timah, I definitely miss the ease and convenience Orchard has. But I am amazed at how I am loving the lively atmosphere surrounded by the greenery and the regular sightings of the wildlife here.

We wanted a school where both James and George felt a part of. Where life skills are as important as the sciences and academia. We love the approach to giving the children the skills they need to understand the world around them.

I love the ocean and going to the beach, especially being from Hawaii where there are beautiful beaches, therefore I was inspired to paint the mural about plastic pollution.

Finding a balance between multiple classes and sustaining a social life is another aspect that I grasped thanks to IB and I now utilise in order to manage nine courses which vary every semester.

I really stepped out of my comfort zone to try what I would never have thought of doing - like performing a dance routine in school for the first time, participating in peer counselling, etc. It’s really these memories that stay with you after graduating.
