Primary Five

Primary Four has been great, let’s make Primary Five better!

Primary Five is a critical year and the best time to start tuition if you haven’t. Reasons being:

  1. Streaming into standard or foundation courses takes place again by the end of Primary 5. Parents had the ultimate say during the first streaming in Primary 4, but by Primary 5, the school will make the final call.
  2. Students will see a sudden jump in difficulty levels in Primary 5 and lots of help are needed in order for your child to continue to excel and to prepare for PSLE (in primary 6).

Here’s some exciting news for you! 95% of our students score 80 and above for their end-of-year examinations.

What’s more, our students score well not just in the subjects they are taking with us but for all subjects they are taking in school thanks to our Executive Function Stimulations as part of the ILLAC programme.

We are NOT results-oriented and NONE of our students are drilled extensively and relentlessly for good results. Instead, our students are developed through an enhancement of their Learning Abilities and their love for learning using Brain Priming activities, Speed Reading, customised learning and an extremely motivating learning environment.

Our ILLAC Program™ (Primary to Secondary) offers English, Mathematics and Science on separate days.

Here’s a list of skills required of students in Primary 5.
