Total Curriculum Framework

Ngee Ann Secondary School 

Guiding Principles


At Ngee Ann, our curriculum is designed with two considerations in mind – the student and the future.


We aim to nurture students who are future-ready through our future-oriented curriculum. To this end, our student outcome for the future-ready NAsian, the Ngee Ann All Rounder, is embodied by the Thinker with Vision, Leader of Character and Citizen who Serves. 


The Ngee Ann All Rounder. Think. Lead. Serve.


Guided by a clear vision of the Ngee Ann All Rounder and of the reality of a world of change and disruption, our NASS Total Curriculum Framework (TCF) steers the holistic education we provide to develop, support and challenge students to stretch their potential, anchor them in values, empower them to learn for life, and position them for the future.


The Total Curriculum is Student-Centric, Values-Driven, Future-Focused.

NASS Total Curriculum Framework


We believe in helping students learn, grow and thrive in a technologically rich learning environment. Our students experience learning that combines key knowledge with core competencies, shaped through our distinctive culture of care, innovation and character building. Our teachers leverage current and research-backed pedagogies to enable breadth, depth and interconnections in student learning. These distinct components intersect, integrate and converge to achieve the student outcome of Think, Lead and Serve, as depicted by our microchip-based TCF shown below.

Our Total Curriculum Framework is inspired from the chip that changed the world. The microchip is an apt metaphor for the Ngee Ann Curriculum to aspire towards, as a Future School. The microchip gets ever leaner and agile. It packs ever greater power and promise. Like the microchip, we aspire for our curriculum to continue to be lean, agile, yet filled with power and promise for our students - the mark of Ngee Ann’s ethos in curriculum design and development.
