The Straits Times Secondary English Mastery Class

The O’Level Cambridge Secondary English curriculum requires the student to display independent critical thinking and writing across a broad range of topics.

In a small class size of only 8 students, our teachers are able to take the time to focus and explore each topic thoroughly. In our classes, we strive for understanding and not just memorising. Our end goal is to help students develop independent and critical thinking.
