Student Development

‘Every Admiral, a Leader’

Admiralty Secondary School believes that every child is a leader and is characterized by the four desired outcomes of Confident, Self-directed, Concerned and Contributing Admiral, while anchored firmly in the School Values (LIGHTS). Admirals are empowered to actualize their aspirations through a values-based curriculum featuring Social and Emotional Competencies, 21st Century Competencies, Practices from ‘The Leadership Challenge’ and Design Thinking.

The Student Development curriculum focuses on the holistic development of Admirals across the Cognitive, Leadership, Aesthetics, Moral, Physical and Social (CLAMPS) domains in a progressive and integrated manner over four years. This curriculum is operationalized using the Co-Curriculum Framework. 

Central to the Student Development processes and programmes is the nurturing of Character and Citizenship in Admirals. Values inculcation and teaching of Social and Emotional Competencies are emphasised. Teaching students strategies for self-leadership and enhancing their internal locus of control aims to strengthen self-efficacy and motivation to succeed.

In line with the school’s Culture of Care and Culture of Learning, quality relationships between teachers and students is continuously strengthened. As such, the school has adopted a restorative and relational approach to student management to ensure every child is well-supported by the Student development Team (SDT). Students Voice is encouraged and their involvement in organizing school-wide and community activities valued. This serves to nurture Admirals with the heart to serve and promote a strong school identity, thereby, rootedness to Singapore.
