International Baccalaureate Diploma

Singapore Sports School offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme to cater to student-athletes who prefer a broad-based academic programme leading to university. This through-train pathway provides an uninterrupted sport development pathway for student-athletes who wish to pursue a broad-based post-secondary education which is compatible with their sport development plans.

Sports School inked a joint agreement with the World Academy of Sport (WAoS) and IB Organisation (IBO) in June 2015 to take the first intake of student-athletes on the extended pathway in January 2016.  In 2018, Sports School was reaffirmed as an Athlete-Friendly Education Centre when WAoS renewed the accreditation, allowing Sports School to continue to offer the Extended IBDP. This reaccreditation allows high-performing IBDP student-athletes greater flexibility in planning and balancing their academic and competition schedules. They are allowed to complete their IBDP in up to four years as compared to the usual 2 years. The student-athletes on the extended pathway will attain the same qualifications as students on the usual 2-year pathway recognised for university admission.
