The Primary Department is committed to providing high-quality education to motivate students to achieve their highest potential and prepare them to become lifelong learners who will exercise a sense of responsibility and leadership in school and the community.
We aim to foster a lifelong love of learning and equip the students with all the skills they need to become confident, competent, independent and motivated learners.
The Primary curriculum is based on the Singapore curriculum and the Cambridge International Primary Programme which are innovative and dynamic. With our qualified and dedicated teachers and staff, the students will be empowered with all skills that will enable them to be successful learners in their Secondary years.
The school offers a diverse range of co-curricular opportunities including academic pursuits, leadership programmes, sports (basketball, soccer, martial arts, badminton), special interests (arts, dance, cooking and calligraphy) religion, marching band, choir and community involvement. There are also opportunities for the students to participate in overseas exchange programmes in Singapore, China and other countries as well as overseas educational trips for primary five and six.

Pastoral and Life Skills
Stamford offers programmes and support for character development and personal well-being. Roots and Wings is a framework for inculcating values encapsulated in our Mission and Vision such as respect and leadership. Through “Lifewise”, our students get to learn useful practical skills such as washing and cooking. A guidance counsellor is available to students on personal matters and gives specialised support.
