School Structure

The structure of Singapore Sports School consists of three main arms which run student-centric programmes – Sports, Academics and Student Development – supported by the Corporate Services Wing.

The Sports Group is headed by Director of Sports, Ms Tan Bee Lian, Deputy Director of Sports, Mdm Chan Wai Lin, Technical Director, Mr Teng Wei Ken, and Assistant Directors Mr Clifton Dragon, Ms Jeanie Tan Hui Hui, and Ms Ong Kaifen. 

Each Deputy Director, Technical Director and Assistant Director is an advisor to a cluster and leads a team of General Managers, coaches, mentors and boarding staff who see to the holistic development and well-being of the student-athletes in that cluster. The cluster concept, which was formalised in 2015, has facilitated communication and discussion processes on the student-athletes in Sports School.

Director Ms Low Ying Xiu leads the Academics Group, alongside  Vice Principals Mr Danny Chew Poh Huat, Mr Ho Beng Kiat and Assistant Vice Principal Mr Lim Han Yong.

The Academics Group, comprising teachers and administrative officers, ensures the smooth running of the secondary school and post-secondary International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. It also works closely with partners Ngee Ann Polytechnic and Republic Polytechnic to offer customised polytechnic diploma programmes. 

The Student Development Committee is led by Dr Irwin Seet and oversees the design and delivery of a holistic learning experience for student-athletes, with emphasis on values education and the cultivation of a Champion’s Mindset. This is achieved by implementing the customised Student Development Programme and the enhanced Mentoring Programme, both of which are unique to Sports School and contribute to the nurturing of Learned Champions With Character. 

The Committee coordinates the annual level camps in collaboration with Outward Bound Singapore, the student leadership programme as well as the Values-In-Action Programme. The Committee endeavours to promote a positive school culture through the Academy Awards and other programmes that build School and Academy Spirit.

The Corporate Services Wing in the Sports School is led by Director, Corporate Services, Mr Soon Choon Boon, and supported by Acting Deputy Director Mr Looi Eng Chai, and Assistant Directors Ms Tan Theng Joo, Ms Chia Bee Teck and Mr Jackson Tong. It oversees  various aspects of organisational excellence such as Boarding, Business, Estate Management, Finance, Human Resource, Information Technology and Procurement.
