Secondary Programmes

Sports School offers a quality athlete-friendly academic programme at the secondary level that leads to the GCE O-Level and GCE N-Level examinations. Our secondary programme is founded upon principles of exemplary teaching and learning to nurture future-ready student-athletes.

Holistic Education Approach

Student-athletes engage in meaningful learning experiences in and out of the classroom to prepare them for life after Sports School. Classroom lessons are complemented with experiential learning, project work, group work and outdoor activities to enrich their learning. Student development programmes such as citizenship and character development are also part of the curriculum to give student-athletes a holistic education experience.

Post-Secondary Pathway Recommendation

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


The School-Within-A-School (SWS) programme is offered to support student-athletes who require high technical skills and repetitive training with consecutive training blocks, typically student-athletes in badminton and table tennis who benefit significantly from the extended duration of training each day. High-performing student-athletes from other sports, who require similar intensive sport and academic support to prepare them for upcoming major competitions, can also be placed in this programme so that they can receive all-round support.
