The department aims to inculcate a strong sense of appreciation for the Humanities in a technologically-driven world through effective teaching and learning strategies and equipping our pupils with the skills to become independent learners and practical problem solvers.

Our students will be able to possess a good grasp of content knowledge in the Humanities subjects and acquire and develop thinking skills of explaining, analysing, evaluating and making judgements on issues.

Through participating in Humanities Learning Journeys, students develop a greater understanding and appreciation of their surroundings and history. As such, they possess confidence in the future of Singapore and develop into good, useful citizens.


To help our pupils develop a passion for the Humanities and to enable our pupils to attain quality academic grades.
