Primary Years Section

Uniquely Singapore-styled, our Primary section offers a broad-based education, anchored in a rigorous bilingual programme. Our programmes are designed to ensure the child’s holistic development, in and out of the classroom, and most importantly, to develop critical life skills, sound moral values and competencies to navigate a fast-changing world.

We focus on building a firm foundation in values, knowledge and skills so as to allow the child to understand their physical and social world, be able to function in it and relate to others as part of a social group. Our curriculum framework is based on the Singapore curriculum, adapted to the HKSAR context, taking into consideration the different and varied background of our students.

We accept applications from Primary 1 to Primary 6, although places are limited and most of our students have been with SISHK since their preparatory years.
