MOE also said that releasing the planned fee increases for non-citizens over the next two years will enable parents to plan for the financing of their children’s studies in MOE schools.

No changes for Singapore Citizens

School fees will remain unchanged for Singapore Citizens, said MOE.

Singaporeans do not pay monthly school fees for Primary School, and they pay S$5 and S$6 per month for Secondary School and Pre-University respectively.

The following standard miscellaneous fees will also remain unchanged
