A Specialised IP English Program
That Fast Tracks Your Child for General Paper (GP) in JC
A Comprehensive IP English Syllabus That Includes English Literature and Language Arts
We understand that the IP English syllabus is robust, so as to prepare students for General Paper (GP) at the A levels, since IP students do not sit for the O levels.

This not only trains your child to think and express themselves critically, but also sets the stage for a smoother transition into JC (Junior College).
