In keeping with our future-focussed, student-centric education approach, we are happy to be able to broaden our offering of subjects in Secondary School at OWIS Nanyang from August 2022. The introduction of new subjects at different grade levels reflects the changing demands and areas of interest of our students.  

Primary Grade 5 Learners were introduced to Drama as a subject in their transitioning workshops for Secondary

The additional subjects we will be offering in the upcoming academic year are:

  • Grade 6 - Drama
  • Grade 7 and 8 - French and Spanish in addition to Chinese
  • Cambridge IGCSE Grades 9 and 10 - Pure Sciences as an alternative to Coordinated Sciences and First / Home Language (self-study option)
  • IB DP Grades 11 and 12 - Digital Societies within the Individuals and Societies subject group

Furthermore, we are excited to be launching Secondary Grade 6 at our Suntec campus, which has so far catered to Early Childhood and Primary learners. 

In this new grade, we will follow the modified Cambridge curriculum, which we have in place at OWIS Nanyang as well. Given the unique set-up of the Suntec campus, we will adopt a hybrid model in our education approach to bridge the learning transition between Primary and Secondary. Students’ socio-emotional learning and well-being will continue to be given importance.  

Commenting on these developments, Mr. Mark Renie, Head of School, OWIS, said, “With the launch of Grade 6 at our Suntec campus, our Primary Grade 5 learners who are well-settled in this warm community can continue their well-rounded education without any disruption. We are also welcoming new learners in this grade, and we look forward to supporting them to flourish through our holistic approach and subject offerings.”
