Secondary Programmes


Singapore Sports School’s academic programme is anchored upon the educational objectives set out by the Ministry of Education. It is one that prepares our student-athletes for our athlete-friendly post-secondary through-train pathways or the National Examination route.

Student-athletes are recommended the most appropriate academic pathway for them at the end of Secondary 3. Those who will benefit from a longer runway for sports development can accept the recommendation to be on one of the through-train pathways where they will bypass the national examinations.

Sports Module

Sports Module is designed using a curriculum approach that aims to help student-athletes adopt a more thinking and scientific approach to their training regime and equips them with the knowledge, habits and lifeskills of a champion.

Elements of basic sport science are also infused into the lower secondary Science curriculum. Topics include those on nutrition, identification of relevant muscle groups in the human body, the human circulatory system and the female athlete triad. Teaching of such concepts enables student-athletes to understand how their bodies respond to training and specific exercises, putting them in a favourable position in their pursuit of sport advancement.

In addition, the Sports School offers examinable subjects that are sport-focused, namely, Exercise and Sports Science (ESS) at GCE "O" Level and Sports, Exercise and Health Science (SEHS) as an IB subject.
