Our School

One World International School offers high quality international education in a nurturing multi-cultural environment. Our students come from many countries around the world and they are confident and articulate, often speaking other languages in addition to English.

Our ethos is to deliver a highly personalised education for all students. With a high teacher-student ratio in every class, our teachers have more one-to-one time with each student to provide feedback and improve learning.

One World International School is a special place where every member of our community is valued and respected. This community is at the heart of everything we do: our cultural festivities, our celebrations, our House system and especially in all our classrooms. We understand that one of the most important aspects of learning is the relationship between the teacher and each individual student.

For international students it is important to be confident that the standards of the school are such that they compare with other similar international schools. At OWIS we undertake the International Schools’ Assessment (ISA), undertaken by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER). These are external assessments that are not specific to a single curriculum but evaluate core skills, allowing schools to check the reliability of their internal assessments. From the data received from ACER and our own formative and summative testing we are confident that we are delivering a high quality curriculum in an optimum learning environment.

One World International School is part of the Global Schools Foundation (GSF), which is a Singapore based, not-for-profit foundation that presently educates students of over 56 nationalities.

The school is registered with the Committee for Private Education, SkillsFuture Singapore Agency (CPE) and meets the requirements in corporate governance, quality of provision, and information transparency.

An Academic Board and Examination Board as required by the Committee for Private Education, SkillsFuture Singapore Agency (CPE), oversees and ensures the quality of academic programme.



One World International School has spacious classrooms, which are well resourced for inquiry-based learning, equipped with iPads, Macbooks and interactive whiteboards.

The décor of the classrooms and modular furniture allow for a warm atmosphere designed to encourage teamwork and co-operative learning.


Library and Learning Centre

The library provides a comfortable learning centre, well-stocked with a range of regularly updated books for borrowing, resources for learning and a bank of Apple Macbooks for student use.

Specialist Classrooms

We have well resourced specialist Science, Art and Music rooms and a large, carpeted space for Secondary School Drama.

Designated outdoor areas for Sports and Outside Play and Education

Physical Education and sport is an important aspect of our curriculum. On-site we have an enclosed sports area and basketball court as well as a large field for soccer and other ball games. All children benefit from our high quality swimming programme held at excellent facilities next to our school.

One World International School provides the necessary space for children to be physically active and to develop their competitive spirit.

An adventure playground, back garden and early childhood playground supplement the extensive space provided for play, exercise, outdoor education and gardening!
