The School-Within-A-School programme, also known as “Evening School”, provides an alternative approach to studying and training for selected Singapore Sports School student-athletes.
These student-athletes have been identified by the respective National Sports Associations as having the potential to be on the high-performance sport development pathway.
SWS best supports student-athletes who require high technical skills and repetitive training with consecutive training blocks. Student-athletes in sports such as badminton, golf and table tennis benefit significantly from the extended duration of training in the day and attending academic classes in the evenings.
The rigour of the academic programme in the SWS is similar to that of the day school. However, SWS offers a greater customisation of academic support for its student-athletes so that they can travel and compete more frequently. The yearly and daily academic schedules in SWS are worked around the student-athletes' training and competition plans. Classes may also be conducted during the scheduled school holidays.
