Preparatory Course for Admission to Government School (Primary 2 to Primary 5)
Introduction to Primary School
A child in Singapore undergoes six years of primary education, comprising a four-year foundation stage from Primary 1 to 4 and a two-year orientation stage from Primary 5 to 6.
At the foundation stage, the core curriculum which comprises English, Mother Tongue and Mathematics are taught, with supplementary subjects such as Music, Arts & Crafts, Physical Education and Social Studies. Science is included from Primary 3.
To maximize their potential, students are streamed according to their learning ability before advancing to the orientation stage. At the end of Primary 6, students sit for the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE).
Singapore's primary school curriculum has been used as a model internationally, especially its teaching methods in mathematics. Foreign students are accepted at primary schools subject to availability of vacancies.
This preparatory course is for 7-12 years old local/international students who wish to enroll in Singapore government primary schools. Teachers will teach students in small groups in preparation for primary school’s entry test. The subjects offered are English and Mathematics.
