KTJ Secondary offers a holistic and rigorous curriculum which is designed to support excellence both in and out of the classroom. This is supplemented by a wide-range of co-curricular activities (CCAs) to help our students discover and develop qualities and characteristics outside of academics.
The Secondary school encompasses Form 1 to 5 and the Sixth Form. Our students in Forms 1 to 3 follow a bespoke syllabus based on the English National Curriculum while students in Form 4 start preparing for their IGCSE exams which they sit for in Form 5. Learning is then further developed in the Sixth Form through A Levels, IELTS and university preparation.
Secondary school is an important period in students' lives as they transition from being children to young adults. As such, KTJ provides integrated support for our students' academic, emotional and physical needs. This includes English language and learning support for those who require it, as well as counselling services and health services.
Parents can rest assured that the welfare of their students is a top priority at KTJ.
In line with our holistic approach to education, we believe that apart from focusing on academic achievements, our students also need to nurture and build on the skills and dispositions that we call the KTJ Learner Characteristics.
