We’re an Australian-French family who have been in Singapore for 12 years. Jules has been attending The Winstedt School since April 2022 and is in Year 7.
Winstedt was recommended to us by close friends. We regret not enrolling Jules sooner – we can’t recommend Winstedt enough!
Jules is doing very well academically. However, he struggles with self-regulation. As a smaller school with two teachers in the classroom, Winstedt is able to embrace these challenges by offering Jules a safe place to be himself, while providing him the right tools to learn and grow. The pastoral care is visibly building his self-confidence, and the positive and frequent communication we receive as parents is second to none. As Jules whispered to us when he first trialled the school, “This is a place where I can be me.”
From our initial email enquiry to today, the admissions team, administrative staff, Jules’ teachers and the support team are nothing short of amazing. Jules loves going to school, thanks to the care and patience shown by his teachers, both in and out of the classroom.
Although the grounds lack the bells and whistles of the larger international schools, the school makes up for it in many other ways. Jules loves the school farm where he can feed the baby chicks before class. He also loves trampoline time, which is time given to students when they need to burn off energy between classes. The curriculum is challenging and interesting, and the CCAs are diverse and fun. Jules is on the Student Council and is enrolled in football and Homework Club, and there are many school-driven competitions that he loves to take part in, too.
We strongly recommend the school to any parent searching for a more holistic approach to teaching and supporting sensitive and spirited children.
