There are 24 classes in all, divided into five levels: 14 Express classes and 10 Normal (Academic/Technical) programmes. It has to become a preferred school for kids from the Sin Ming, Bishan, Ang Mo Kio, and Upper Thomson areas.

Peirce Secondary School emphasises the practical aspects of competent seamanship and allows students to calculate and estimate navigation using their understanding of geography and mathematics.

Co-Curricular Activities  (CCAs)

Students can learn new skills, develop their abilities, and meet new friends through Peirce’s CCA programme. In addition, kids acquire essential principles and improve their social and emotional skills in the emerging 21st Century Competencies.

Sports, Visual and Performing Arts, Uniformed Groups, and Clubs are the four areas of CCAs at the school. Each CCA has its own set of goals. The Sports CCAs are design to help athletes develop toughness, fairness, and team spirit. The CCAs for Visual and Performing Arts foster a spirit of graciousness and appreciation for the arts in students. The goal of Uniformed Groups (UG) is to instil self-reliance, resilience, discipline, and a sense of service to others in cadets.

Lessons on CCE

CCE’s curriculum is built around three major concepts: identity, relationships, and choices. It entails instilling in our kids a sense of purpose through teaching and acquiring values and social-emotional competencies. CCE’s six curriculum content areas – Education and Career Guidance, Cyber Wellness, National Education, Sexuality Education, Mental Health and Family Education – teach and apply these basics. CCE classes are held once a week and tailored to the needs of our students.

Goals of Education and Career Guidance (ECG)

We want our students to graduate from Peirce with the knowledge, skills, and values they need to be Future Ready – to have a sense of purpose in life, to develop adaptability and lifelong learning dispositions. Peirce celebrates ECG Day every year. The year’s ECG Day was held on April 7, 2021. We hope that the events will assist our students a better grasping their interests and objectives and connect them to other educational and employment options.

Motivate, engage, and inspire.

All students benefit from a healthy, supporting, accepting, and safe environment. We help our students build resilience, mental and emotional health, a positive sense of self and belonging, and the ability to make positive and healthy choices to support learning and achievement through our programmes and interactions with them.

We have a dedicated team of teachers, school counsellors, Allied Educators (Learning and Behavioural Support) and student welfare officers (SWO) who believe in Teacher-Student Relationships (TSR).
