1. Get an Early Start to Applied Learning
Some learn better by experimenting in the labs or relating to textbook theories through project work. If your child is one of them, you will be intrigued by what SST offers: an early start to applied learning.
Our curriculum focuses on applied learning, which is specially designed to connect the dots between classroom concepts to the real-world context. By doing so, it promotes more enduring understanding of content and better mastery of academic subjects.
Students in SST will undergo a four-year programme and sit for their ‘O’ Level Examinations when they are in Secondary Four. They will be able to select from a variety of ‘O’ Level Applied Subjects, such as Media Studies (English Language), Biotechnology and Fundamentals of Electronics. These are in addition to the usual Language, Mathematics, Science and Humanities subjects that the students will be taking for the GCE ‘O’ Level Examinations.
The combination of a sturdy academic foundation with practical applied learning skills ensures that our students will be well prepared for the ‘O’ Levels and more importantly, the university.
2. Learning at SST is Multi-Faceted
SST believes in providing a multi-faceted learning experience for our students to better equip them with the right skills and knowledge when they graduate.
Our students learn through a variety of creative applied learning platforms and our strong focus on Innovation & Entrepreneurship will challenge them to be confident, inventive and experimental, and to be leaders rather than followers.
Trained to constantly think out of the box, SST students will not just be book-smart but also evolve into a new breed of thinkers, innovators and entrepreneurs.
3. Rev up with our Power Packed Partnership with NTU and NP
Singapore’s premier tertiary institutions, Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and Ngee Ann Polytechnic (NP), are lending their expertise in curriculum development, facilities design and enrichment programmes to develop SST into a top-notch specialized independent school. Besides enjoying access to state-of-the- art facilities, students will also benefit from research and mentorship opportunities with NTU professors and NP lecturers, which enhance their thinking and research skills.
4. Link up with Successful Entrepreneurs and Innovators
SST is very committed in grooming our students to become Singapore’s next generation of entrepreneurs and innovators. Distinguished entrepreneurs and technopreneurs sit on our Board of Directors and we are the first Secondary School to establish an Entrepreneurship Advisory Council, which is headed by Mr Inderjit Singh, CEO of Infiniti Solutions Ltd.
If you have aspirations for your child to be the next Olivia Lum, you can be assured that SST will be able to provide all the necessary skills and knowledge to develop his/her talent!
5. Plug into Information Communication Technology 24/7
As one of the six schools in the FutureSchools@Singaporeprogramme, SST will leverage cutting-edge Information Communication Technology (ICT) to plan and deliver our unique curriculum to the students.
SST will also receive special funding to develop purpose-built infrastructure and facilities at our permanent campus. Our specialised laboratories and design studios will definitely be an eye-opener for all prospective students and parents!
6. Learn from Specially-Trained Teachers and in Small Class Sizes
SST teachers are carefully selected based on their passion to teach creatively and their ability to impart applied learning skills to students. We also have experienced lecturers seconded from NP and will be hiring professionals from the industry. With our small class size of just 20 to 25 students, students can expect maximum attention and ample learning opportunities.
7. Excel at the ‘O’ Levels and Beyond!
We aim to groom students with excellent ‘O’ Level results but we are also looking at more than just straight A’s. Our holistic and broad-based education will equip SST students with a wide range of useful life skills, sound moral values, technological smarts and excellent industry contacts that will give them an edge in whatever they do!
