Full Subject-Based Banding (FSBB)


Woodgrove Secondary School will be implementing FSBB to all Sec 1 students from 2023 onwards.

Purpose of FSBB

With FSBB, we are moving towards one secondary education, with many subject bands, to better meet our students’ learning needs. This is part of the broader shift in our education system to recognise the strengths and interests of our children, to help them build their confidence and develop an intrinsic motivation to learn for life.

FSBB in Woodgrove Secondary School

1.      Organising FSBB Form Class

Secondary 1 students will be grouped in mixed Form Classes, comprising students from different courses of study (ie, NT, NA or Express levels).

Students will attend lessons in the Form Classes only for the following subjects: Art, Design & Technology (D&T), Character and Citizenship Education (CCE), Food and Consumer Education (FCE), Music, and Physical Education (PE). There will be common curriculum coverage and assessment tasks & rubrics that will allow all students to meet each subject’s requirements.

For other academic subjects, namely English, Mother Tongue Language, Mathematics, Science, and the Humanities, students will be attending lessons based on their subject classes. The subject classes will be organised based on their respectively courses at the NT, NA or Express levels.

2.      Offering Humanities Subjects At A More Demanding Level

Our school will allow offer Humanities subjects at a more demanding level, if students meet subject-specific criteria by the end of their Sec 1 year.

For further enquiries, parents/ prospective students may email us at woodgrove_ss@moe.edu.sg with [FSBB] in the subject of the email.
