EtonHouse International School at Orchard receives its IB Diploma Authorisation26 May 2020
EtonHouse International School is officially an authorised International Baccalaureate (IB) World School for the Diploma Programme (IB DP) which is offered at the Orchard campus.
From August 2020, EtonHouse’s Year 12 students studying at Orchard will commence the IB DP, a widely recognised and respected programme by universities worldwide.
The authorisation of EtonHouse Orchard’s IB Diploma Programme brings the total number of IB World Schools at EtonHouse to 10. This is a significant milestone for EtonHouse’s 25th year anniversary. It also makes the Orchard campus the first in Singapore to be authorised to run the IB DP programme, 2 years since it commenced operations. EtonHouse Suzhou in China is the first EtonHouse campus in the group to offer the programme.
Along with the IB authorisation, EtonHouse will also be launching a scholarship scheme for the IGCSE and IB Diploma Programme. This will include a total of 10 scholarships including heritage scholarships for existing EtonHouse students to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Group.
The scholarship grant fully covers application fees, capital levy and school fees throughout the duration of the course. This amounts to an estimated $37,000 per year for the IB DP and $35,000 for the IGCSE over 2 years to be renewed on a yearly basis. It amounts to a scholarship grant of more than $700,000.
To maintain the scholarship, students are expected to exhibit exemplary behaviour, maintain a minimum predicted grade A for Cambridge IGCSE or a minimum 6 per subject at IB Diploma. They should also actively contribute to the school and the immediate community.
