A. Entry requirements and Administrative details.

  1. What is the school’s indicative PSLE score range?
Indicative Score Range
Express 8 – 22
Normal Academic 21 – 25
Normal Technical 25 – 28

The PSLE score ranges are indicative as 2021 is the first year of transition from T-score to Achievement Levels (AL) scoring system. They are simulated using the 2020 PSLE cohort results and students’ school choice.

 

  1. Can we still appeal if my child does not get posted to SGS?

Yes, you may still appeal. However, we are unable to guarantee whether the appeal will be successful, as the indicative score may change depending on the demand for places in our school.

Given that we have seen an increase in demand for places in SGS over the past few years, you may wish to consider opting for SGS as one of the first 3 choices to avoid having to go through an appeal to enrol with us.

Also, we offer subjects like Principles of Accounts, Food and Nutrition, and Design and Technology. Students may choose to offer up to 6 or 7 subjects, depending on their level of readiness and their performance in Secondary 2.

From year to year, the subject combinations eventually offered, including Pure Sciences and Pure Humanities, may vary depending on the students’ preferences, their aptitude to do well in these subjects, as well as the school’s available teaching resources.

 

C. Special Programmes

 

  1. What is your Applied Learning Programme (ALP)?

In line with our vision of nuturing SGSians as ‘Learning with Grit, Leaders with Heart’, our Applied Learning Programme (ALP), entitled “Researching Society through Media Literacy” focuses on equipping our students with necessary media communication skills to think critically and deeply about society issues. Over the three-year programme, students progressivelly hone compeyencies such as media literacy, critical thinking and media creations skills to facilitate their research and present their findings.

Through the ALP, our students grow in confidence as they learn to manage an Independent project, effectively work with others and present their research through different mediums. At the end of the project, there is the ALP Celebrations, where students share their research and solutions to societal issues with the SGSians family.

 

  1. Will there be opportunities for my child to develop leadership skills? What is your Learning for Life Programme (LLP)?

All students have the opportunity to undergo leadership skills development in SGS, under our ‘Learning for Life Programme’ to grow as ‘Confident and Compassionate Leaders’. Through our LLP, students are equipped with skills to lead themselves, work with peers and lead others, through customized level-wide leadership programmes. As part of our inclusive approach for student leadership development, all students have the opportunity to serve as a students-leader at the class, CCA or school level through the SGS Leadership by Choice platform. Selected students leaders will also embark on an overseas expedition to further broaden their horizons while increasing their capacity to lead.

  1. Are there other signature programmes offered?

Our school’s Level Signature Programmes (LSPs) aim to enhance our students’ social

And emotional competencies and deepen their 21st Century Competencies through authentic experiential Learning. Over the course of three to four days, all levels of students are engaged in specially curated and customized activities such as overseas learning trips, outdoor and adventure camp, healthy lifestyle lessons and sessions on education and career guidance for our graduating cohort, who get to visit the Polytechnics and various industries. Over the past years, our Secondary Two students, for example have the opportunity to visit Penang and Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. For many of them, the highlight of these trips is the opportunity to meet their peers from the local schools.
