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 two 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.
