Primary School Overview
Challenging students to fulfil their true potential
There is a distinctively warm community feel that is unique to each EtonHouse school. Every teacher knows every student. This translates into an environment where your children feel valued in the classroom and also within the school community. Learning is differentiated to cater to the unique interests, abilities and learning styles of each student. Your children are encouraged to become independent and self-motivated learners in an environment that is safe, inviting and challenging at the same time.
Strong language foundation
As one of the first international school to offer bilingual programmes, it’s little wonder that our language lessons – Chinese, Japanese and English as an Additional Language – are our strength. These provide a rich context for language learning as well as exploration of cultures through the lenses of the language, and provide our children a wonderful opportunity to develop a sense of international mindedness.
The exciting Specialists lessons – Physical Education, Art, Music, Library and ICT – aim to support the classroom inquiries and ensure a well-rounded, holistic development for our children.
EtonHouse International School Orchard adopts an inquiry approach inspired by the International Baccalaureate ‘Primary Years Programme’ (IBPYP). Our integrated curriculum focuses on the development of the whole child, encompassing social, physical, emotional and cultural needs in addition to academic welfare.
Delivered over the past two decades, the EtonHouse Primary Programme is a trusted programme in international education. Our success lies in a curriculum that delivers the disciplines in an authentic and relevant context for young learners. Children are exposed to innovative and diverse experiences that hone their social, communication, self-management, research and critical thinking skills.
