Get Acquainted With The Secondary English Syllabus to Bounce Back Stronger

The Secondary English Syllabus is vastly different and more challenging than Primary English.

For starters, gone are the MCQs, replaced by Comprehension Passages and more complex Compositions. Hence, it's perfectly normal to feel lost after the first weighted assessment.

Our Secondary 1 English Crashcourse in March is designed to get your child acquainted with the skills to navigate Secondary English and restart stronger in Term 2.

This 2-day program covers Situational Writing and Narrative Comprehension - two fundamental segments introduced in Secondary 1 English, with distinctively different marking requirements.

Equip your child with the skills and strategies to begin their Secondary English Journey on firm footing!
