More than 90% our student-athletes who sit for the GCE “O” Level Examinations achieve at least 5 subject passes. Close to 100% of them also qualify for junior colleges or the polytechnics. The Sports School consistently achieves results that are better than expected, including the key performance indicators of L1B5 and L1R5 aggregates.
Post-Secondary IBDP Pathway
Sports School's first four cohorts of IBDP graduates have maintained a high standard of academic excellence with an average score of 40 points.
Sabrina Chau Shu Ning, a golfer from the Class of 2016, is the School's first perfect scorer of 45 points. Also from the Class of 2016, Natalie Chen Mei Qing, an Artistic Swimmer who was a two-time gold medallist at the Singapore 2015 Southeast Asian Games, had shown that balancing sport and studies is achievable when she obtained 44 points.
Tan Zay Hua from the Class of 2017, a netball player who also represented Singapore as a member of the National Women’s Cricket Team, was one of three student-athletes from the same batch who scored 43 points.
From the Class of 2018, Chong Wei Kit, a high jumper and Vice-Captain of the Council of School Captains shared the top spot with Terrence Ng Shu Hao from the Shooting Academy when they scored 44 points. Louis Tee Jun Jie, a golfer on the extended IBDP, who was the best local boy at the 2017 Singapore Junior Open Championships, scored a creditable 43 points.
Post-Secondary Polytechnic Pathways
Despite their very demanding sports schedule, post-secondary (polytechnic) student-athletes have consistently achieved remarkable academic results in their diploma courses. They are awarded academic prizes like Diploma or Module prizes regularly. The Sports School also works closely with the six autonomous universities in Singapore to recommend deserving post-secondary (polytechnic) student-athletes for university admission.
