Primary Four

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

Primary Four 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 by the end of Primary 4. Despite the fact that the ultimate decision still lies in the parents’ choice, it is the determining year that tells you and your child what is most suitable for him/her moving forward.
  2. Students will see a sudden jump in difficulty levels in Primary 5 and so Primary 4 is an important milestone to cross. With a good foundation at Primary 4, children will find it easier to pick up skills in Primary 5.

Here’s some exciting news for you! 95% of our students score 90 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.

Here’s a list of skills required of students in Primary 4.
