Message from the Principal

Welcome to The Grange Institution!

It is my privilege to be leading The Grange Institution (TGI) in Singapore. We are proud that our diverse and multicultural community is made up of families representing 17 nationalities and cultures.

The Grange is a young and small school with a big vision to offer a future-focused curriculum and programmes that will truly develop global citizens of tomorrow. We aim to cultivate a generation of young children who will grow up to become creative, respectful and responsible individuals that who see themselves as active servant leaders who can positively impact the world and people around them. We believe we will deliver this vision through our Cre8tors-in-Action©️ initiative.

Our team of dedicated and experienced educators and support staff are committed and motivated to support this vision in providing quality learning experiences and a nurturing learning environment where every child can experience success. We value each child as a unique individual and a positive member of our school community.

The Grange curriculum is well-balanced and designed to engage the learners holistically. Students’ literacy, numeracy and science learning is supported by the Cambridge International English, Mathematics and Science curriculum which will provide a solid foundation that will prepare every learner well into the middle years. In additional, we offer every student at TGI the opportunity to take an additional language within the school hours. For students who are beginning English language learners, we offer extra support in English language development in an immersive environment.

In additional, we deliver the International Primary Curriculum (IPC). At every year level, students are engaged in different thematic Units of Learning designed to appeal to their interests and help them to learn more about the world around them. These Units of Learning help children to see how subjects are both independent and interdependent. This enables them to see the big picture of their learning, make connections across different subjects, see topics and issues in the world from multiple perspectives, and to become passionate about taking positive actions as a result of their learning.

We promote awareness and encourage self-expression and creativity through our physical education, art, music and coding curriculum. These subjects provide avenues where students communicate beyond the use of language, and excellent opportunities exist where students become more aware of their self-identity as well as develop important research, thinking, communication, social and self-management skills.

Having a healthy mind and a healthy body are crucial to your child’s success at school. At The Grange, we expect all adults and students to model and develop a set of personal goals that are highly relevant in all aspects of our daily lives, as well as to maintain a positive attitude towards active living. We emphasise a school culture where self-discipline and respect is highly valued. It is our belief that healthy, happy children learn best.

We value parents as partners in education. I hope you would invest your interest and time to be informed about your child’s learning, participate in learning opportunities and to help us extend your child’s learning beyond the classroom.

I am confident that the educational experience at The Grange caters for all dimensions of a child’s intellectual, emotional, social and physical well being. Thank you for choosing to be a part of our TGI family.
