Primary School

Where Natural Curiosity is Developed into a Passion for Lifelong Learning.

Siam Singapore International School offers 6 years of education that is designed to give your child a strong foundation in language and numeracy skills. At the end of six years, our students will sit for the International Primary School Leaving Examination (iPSLE) conducted by the Singapore Examination and Assessment Board (SEAB).

Children are innately inquisitive, and we are committed not only to keeping this curiosity alive, but to cultivate it into a passion for life-long learning. Our faculty does this by incorporating the Learning Profile Model and encouraging students to be inquirers, knowledgeable thinkers, communicators, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, well-balanced, and reflective learners.

Our primary school encompasses Primary 1 to Primary 6. Our learning environments are purposefully designed to support the holistic development of each and every child socially, emotionally and academically.

Our curriculum aims to provide every child with a broad range of learning experiences that will help them to discover their own talents and interests.The Primary school curriculum at Siam Singapore International School is focused on three main aspects of education – subject disciplines, knowledge skills, and character development, which will help the students to thrive in the 21st Century.
