.Educational Pathway (latest)-01.png





















There are different types of secondary schools in Singapore. They can be categorised under the following: 

Government

Schools organised and conducted directly by the government.  

Autonomous

Autonomous Schools were established in 1994 to provide pupils with quality education within the framework of a non-independent status but with greater autonomy devolved to the schools (MOE).

These schools provide a wider range of innovative courses and enrichment programmes that enhance your child’s learning experience and develop his/her talents.

Independent

These schools enjoy greater autonomy in curricular innovations, implementation of school programmes, administration, student admissions and the setting of fee structures 

Private

Schools not governed by MOE; for-profit schools.


Different schools offer different programs. This can be shown in the infographic above.  Below are the types of programs student-athletes can consider: 

1.     O’/N’ Levels 

government, autonomous, or independent

a.      Secondary Education places students in the Express, Normal (Academic) or Normal (Technical) course according to how they perform at the PSLE.

b.      Competition: Students involved in a CCA can compete in the National School Games’  C and B Division.
