Open to children of all faiths and nationalities, St Francis Methodist School (SFMS) has designed a unique, well-rounded secondary curriculum based on Singaporean and international curricula.

Founded in 1960, St Francis Methodist School (SFMS) has a cohort of around 750 local and expat students from more than 20 countries including China, Indonesia and Thailand. Affiliated to a family of Methodist schools in Singapore, SFMS is by far the most international secondary school in the group.

Academic programmes include IGCSEs, A Levels and the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE). However, SFMS also operates very much like a government-run MOE school in that it follows the Singaporean academic year (Jan-Dec) and schooling hours, it has a team of teachers largely recruited from mainstream Singaporean schools, and its curriculum includes GCEs.

Students study the MOE syllabus in Secondary 1-2; they can then choose between GCEs, IGCSES or WACE in Secondary 3-4 or Years 9-10; and then finish with A Levels or WACE in U-12 or Years 11-12.

Located next to the new Hillview MRT station, SFMS is a small campus with basic facilities – although it has recently opened a new learning resource centre. Where the school really shines, however, is in its holistic education that focuses as much on pastoral care, moral values and non-academic activities as it does on exam results. Also, tuition fees are considerably cheaper than many other international schools, but still more expensive than local MOE schools.

A full review will be posted shortly.
