Secondary Education

Lower Secondary

It is a fascinating stage in education: Things change quickly, students develop from being Primary school children to IGCSE students and it seems relationships with friends, teachers and parents seem to change every minute.

In this second stage of education, we try not only to develop the academic potential of Secondary School Students, but we are also committed to the social and emotional aspects of learning.

The Curriculum Guide provides detailed insight on how we communicate, how we support the individual and the group and how we develop cross-curricular skills. It includes which key ideas and concepts we focus on in Secondary School.
Should you require more information please feel free and contact the secondary office.

Secondary School students are required to take the following subjects:

  • Art & Design, Information & Communications Technology
  • Humanities (geography and history)
  • Physical Education
  • English as a First Language
  • Mandarin, Malay, Tamil (if appropriate)
  • Mathematics
  • Music
  • Sciences (integrated approach to the study of life sciences and physical sciences in Lower Secondary, biology, chemistry and physics in Upper Secondary)

Information & Communication Technology (ICT)

To enhance the information and computer literacy skills of students in the Secondary School Programme, the school uses a combination of Information and Communications Technology classes and a structured cross-curricula IT program. Where possible, students will demonstrate IT skills and knowledge that are integrated into the curriculum of other subjects. Teachers achieve this aim by collaborating with the IT teacher to develop well planned units of study.

Upper Secondary

In Upper Secondary, students are able to choose subjects from a broad range of options in more depth. Our courses are provided by the UK Cambridge University International Examinations Board (CIE) and UK EdExcel Examinations Board. This two- year programme is globally recognised to be one of the best academically rigorous programmes for this age range of students and enables pupils to gain formally recognised IGCSE qualifications as a result.

After completing IGCSE, students study in even greater depth. By completing A-Level courses accredited by the Cambridge International Examinations Board, UK (CIE) and Edexcel Examinations Board, UK our pupils are being prepared for entry to some of the best universities in the world.

As students prepare for university entrance, they start choosing and specialising in subjects they have the greatest interest in, and are likely to study further at university. The school will also start working with the students and parents, helping with university entrance applications and suggesting aspects of both academic and personal development on which to focus.

The school places a great emphasis upon a diverse co-curricular programme, which offers students sporting, musical, house and academic opportunities. Students are offered a variety of options to further enrich their learning that may include outdoor education and challenge, water sports, community and charity projects, leadership events, house competitions, and further pursuits in the sports and arts.
