The Grange Institution is making a splash on the primary international school scene with experienced teachers, the proven Cambridge Curriculum, and reasonable school fees
Families on the hunt for quality schools are increasingly feeling the pinch of rising fees at international schools and dwindling spots for expats in local schools. The Grange Institution has heroically come on the scene to fill in that sweet spot: it’s a small international primary school that focuses on a unique, family-friendly atmosphere in which every student feels happy, valued and cared for. And their fees are quite reasonable, with introductory rates starting at $15,840!
The Grange Institution subscribes to the internationally renowned Cambridge International Primary Curriculum, which emphasises literacy, comprehension and communication. For instance, students across grades are currently in the midst of a thematic unit of inquiry called “Our Global Village”, covering important topics such a the responsibilities of sharing Planet Earth and conserving its finite resources. These are also in line with the school’s emphasis on creativity and sustainability.
Students in one grade might study pollution in the ocean and its environmental impact on humans by following the story of a sea turtle. All the while, elements of literacy, comprehension and communication become the through line.
For another assignment, students become authors, writing their own stories based on the sea turtle’s journey, even creating their own storybook and incorporating visual arts. Meanwhile, students will also work with a drama teacher to in turn create a play based on their original stories.
Quality teaching is also at the heart of The Grange Institution’s approach. The leadership team is comprised of experienced British and Australian educators who’ve spent decades teaching in Asia and beyond. Parents can feel confident that their kids receive topnotch instruction, while the school’s small size ensures plenty of support and personal attention.
