Singapore Sports School aims to provide a quality athlete-friendly and sport-focused academic programme to nurture future-ready student-athletes – one that is founded upon principles of exemplary teaching and learning.
The Sports School offers GCE O-Level, N-Level Examinations and three post-secondary through-train pathways. Student-athletes on the through-train pathways bypass the GCE O-Level Examinations and progress onto one of three pathways conducted at Sports School: the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme with an option of taking an Extended programme, the customised Diploma in Business with Sport Management Specialisation Track from Republic Polytechnic or the customised Diploma in Business Studies with Entrepreneurship Management Option from Ngee Ann Polytechnic.
The through-train pathways allow student-athletes to attain broad-based, rigorous and widely-accepted post-secondary qualifications for entry into both local and overseas universities. These extended pathways also offer them different options in academic pacing and assessment, and at the same time, allow for a closer matching with their sport training and development programmes. In addition, the longer development runway allows them greater flexibility to pursue sport and academic excellence concurrently.
