English Enrichment Classes for Primary

English enrichment classes at the primary level are designed to achieve the desired learning outcomes for English language proficiency established by Singapore’s Ministry of Education, setting students on the path to academic and holistic accomplishments. To ensure the progressive development of learning needs, our English enrichment programmes are tailored to the literacy and language demands that students face at the Lower Primary, Middle Primary & Upper Primary levels. In addition to schooling needs, we ensure a well-rounded approach to education by cultivating the foundational development of critical thinking, effective communications and confidence in primary school students through various class activities.

As students embark on their learning journey in primary school, we focus on building the foundational experience and enjoyment of English language learning. As they enter primary 2, students are prepared for challenges ahead through the development of independence in learning and exposure to the rigours of academic assessment.
