A holistic British education
So what’s on offer at Brighton College (Singapore)? It’s not just what’s taught here but how it’s taught. The curriculum is designed to ignite a lifelong love of learning in children. Students are encouraged to be inquisitive and confident to challenge theories and ask questions. In addition to math, English, science, geography, history, and computing, all taught by subject-specialist teachers, pupils learn modern foreign languages, music, art, drama and PE, following the IGCSE and A-level curriculum.*
Something unique is the ‘Story of our Land’ course, developed by Brighton College teachers. This course covers Britain’s story connecting history, philosophy, geography and religion in a critically informed way. In addition to academic subjects, a variety of sports, STEM activities, performing arts, and co-curricular activities are offered for a holistic well-rounded education.
As the curriculum is designed to prepare children for the 21st century, digital citizenship is taught throughout the years. In Years 2 – 6 pupils use iPads, while students in Senior School use MacBooks. Classrooms are fitted with interactive whiteboards and Apple TVs, plus students have access to state-of-the-art labs equipped with the latest technology, including VR headsets, micro: bit technology and robots to enhance learning.
Small class sizes and inspirational teachers
Chances are, the subject your child enjoys the most is down to how engaged they are with the teacher. Thanks to small class sizes, and a high teacher-to-pupil ratio, each child receives a personalised educational experience with the attention needed for encouragement and extra support to ensure their wellbeing and academic development. Ask any pupil what makes Brighton College (Singapore) special and one of the first things they will say is ‘our amazing teachers’!
We just love the Brighton College (Singapore) school motto: ‘Be Good, Be Kind, Be Honest. Be the best you.’ It’s all about embracing each person’s uniqueness and encouraging children to be first-rate versions of themselves, not second-rate versions of someone else. This message is central to this school’s ethos and encourages students to accept themselves and each other, to grow in confidence and to show kindness to the people around them.
