Secondary 1    |    Secondary 2    |    Secondary 3    |    Secondary 4

Programmes across English, Math and Science help Secondary 2 students to build a strong academic foundation in order to help them handle the rigour and complexity of upper secondary school materials. Students are constantly challenged to acquire and retain content knowledge whilst being exposed to lesson materials that pique their interest in each of the three major subjects.

This programme will help students to further hone their language skills in terms of reading and writing, especially in employing sophistication and precision in their writing.

Content and Language Mastery

Students will improve their grammar knowledge and skills by practising grammar drills, editing and sentence reconstruction exercises.

They will also learn how to review and edit their work for grammatical accuracy and clarity of meaning.
