Learn More About The Anglo-Chinese School Independent Secondary

The Anglo-Chinese School Independent Secondary began teaching English and Chinese training to 13 children of Chinese entrepreneurs in a modest shophouse at No. 70 Amoy Street. Gradually, the local population became aware of its excellent educational standards. The Anglo-Chinese School family as we know it today started with a divine call to Methodist Reverend William Fitzjames Oldham to establish a mission in Southeast Asia. There were few educational alternatives for the many youngsters in Singapore’s city port at the time. Oldham’s goal was to provide the young boys he observed wandering the streets with a good education. He started Anglo-Chinese School Independent Secondary on March 1, 1886, to prepare pupils to serve “God and mankind.”
