Secondary 1 Admission 2021
SST SECONDARY 1 (S1) ADMISSION 2021
SST admits all our Secondary 1 students into the Express Stream through the Direct School Admission Secondary (DSA-Sec) exercise. It does not participate in the MOE Secondary One Posting Exercise.
Parents and students are encouraged to choose schools wisely based on the student’s aptitudes and strengths, bearing in mind the schools’ academic and non-academic requirements, and the programmes available to develop the area of talent.
Students who are successfully admitted to the school via DSA are expected to honour their commitment to the school and participate in the activities related to the talent they are selected for from year 1 to 4.
