From the school 

“Our small class sizes allow students to be heard and express themselves, gain confidence, think critically and globally and be recognised for their individual talents while at the same time maintaining our overall importance of community.

We are expanding to a bigger campus at Bukit Timah in August 2018 to better serve the needs of our student population. Chatsworth is truly a wonderful school and the best way to see this is to visit us in action. We welcome you to schedule time to come and experience for yourself Chatsworth’s enthusiastic community spirit”.

Tyler Sherwood, Head of Schools and Principal of Chatsworth Orchard

From the parents

“Both our children are attending Chatsworth Orchard campus. The deciding factor that made us choose Chatsworth was seeing how happy and polite the students were during the school tour. The school has an open door policy; as a parent, I find the teachers very approachable. The amount of support that I’ve seen teachers giving to each individual student is also amazing. In all, Chatsworth has been a really positive experience for us”.

Strong sense of community, very cozy, everyone knows everyone else. Just enough activities, and not to overwhelm kids and parents. Central location. Just sufficient facilities (small pool though - but most expats live in condos and have pools anyhow). I just wish they can do better in languages, sports and arts. Mandarin and French are taught in Year 1 and 2 just once a week 45minutes; and you choose one of them from year 3 onwards for 3 times a week (but they are shallow). School sports teams are almost non-existent for the early years (I don't know about junior years and high school). Art is also minimal.Fee is one of few lowest in SG.
