Enter EtonHouse Broadrick and what will immediately strike you is the buzz of the place. Happy, engaged children, risk takers who are confident in expressing their opinions and feelings. You’ll see educators who genuinely care about every small win in their classrooms, teachers who know the names of every child in the school, even when they don’t teach them.
EtonHouse International School on Broadrick Road is one of the most established IB schools in Singapore. Here, the IB Primary Years programme responds to the interests, abilities and learning styles of each student. The school is also known for its outstanding bilingual programme having successfully delivered it in the primary years for more than a decade.
With over 50 different nationalities among our family of teachers, students and parents, we truly are a small global community. Part of having such rich diversity means we go to town on our cultural festivals and celebrations, working them into the lesson plans and hosting engaging activities that involve the whole school. Even our parents jump in on the action, volunteering to share their unique customs. And everyone gets into the spirit by decorating the school and attending events in traditional costumes.
As one of the first international schools in Singapore to offer a primary bilingual programme in English and Mandarin, and one of the few schools offering extensive second language programmes in Mandarin, Japanese, Hindi, English as an Additional Language (EAL), as well as Spanish at Secondary level, we are extremely proud of our pioneering language programmes.
We put in vast teaching resources to run time-intensive daily language and cultural programmes designed to complement and support the units of inquiry each student is studying in their English-led lessons. Our unique strength is the ability to customise our second language programmes to meet the individual needs of students in their second language learning.
At EtonHouse Broadrick, we believe in not only recruiting exceptionally experienced and qualified teachers, but more importantly teachers who have a strong passion and belief in teaching and a deep respect for children. Our teachers get excited by each little win in their classrooms and are highly invested as a school community.
We pride ourselves on being an inclusive family-oriented school with a strong bond to our Parent School Association. And this is reflected in the close relationships we have with the parents of our students. But our family ties go deeper than this, extending even to our student alumni who, until today, come back from time to time for a nostalgic look at the school or to get advice on their further education. And for our present students, the sense of family extends beyond the school grounds as they enthusiastically greet their teachers whenever they encounter them out in public after school hours.
