|Entry Into Grade 7||Students commence High School Grade 7 in the year they turn 13. There are two pathways for entry, all of which require the student to have turned 12 before entry.|
|Entry from Grade 6||
There is an automatic transition from St. Joseph’s Institution International Elementary School Grade 6 into Grade 7 of St. Joseph’s Institution International (High School). Students joining the Elementary School in the final term before Grade 7 do not gain automatic transition into the High School. These students will be required to sit the High School Admissions Test for entry into the High School, in addition to any entrance test that the Elementary School may require.
|Direct Entry: Grade 7||
Eligibility: International students, Singaporean citizens and Student Pass Holders. Applicants should have completed Grade 6 or Year 7 or Primary 6 by the time they join us.
Level: Grade 7 (Singapore Equivalent: Secondary 1)
Curriculum: Foundation IGCSE
Grade 7 is the first year of High School and the students undertake a 2-year Foundation International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) that is based on the British National Curriculum. Students follow a broad range of subjects taught by specialist teachers. Being exposed to a range of subjects enables students to make informed choices about their IGCSE options and ultimately what they will study in the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme.
