One of the schools under the FutureSchools@Singapore project, the School of Science and Technology, Singapore (SST) is a specialised independent secondary school in Singapore, established in 2010. It offers a four-year applied-learning curriculum which leads to the Singapore-Cambridge GCE O Level examination. The school uses Direct School Admissions (DSA) Exercise to obtain its cohorts with the application including a selection camp and several academic tests.
SST caters to students who learn best in an active applied learning environment, where conceptual understandings and transference of disciplinary content knowledge and skills are fostered through cognitively demanding hands-on applications set in real world situations. Sound affective, character and leadership education, national education, and entrepreneurial programmes serve to equip students with the skills and competencies crucial for success in the 21st century and nurture the values-driven and community-responsible person and leader.
This concurrent emphasis on non-academic curricular ensures the cultivation of invaluable life skills and work competencies such as resilience, responsible risk-taking, innovation and entrepreneurial mindset, effective teamwork and communication, and dynamic leadership.
The school-wide leverage on Information Communication Technology (ICT) greatly enhances the learning environment and provides the extended learning resources and networks that the digital natives have come to expect. As a “FutureSchool”, SST aims to be a forerunner in using ICT to support educational programmes and enhance the delivery of its specialised curriculum.
More personal attention will also be given to your child as SST offers a small class size of 20 to 25 students. Our specially selected teachers who undergo special training in applied learning approaches, with enrichment programmes organised by Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and lecturers seconded from Ngee Ann Polytechnic (NP), will provide a varied and enriching learning experience for students.
