Welcome to Admiralty Secondary School

 

Admiralty Secondary School had its beginnings in 2002.  Since then the school has garnered numerous accolades in its short history. In 2006, the school was awarded the Niche status for Robotics Enterprise (RE) and was awarded the Direct School Admission (DSA) status. Currently the school is the Centre of Excellence in Robotics Enterprise and is embarking on Design Thinking as our Applied Learning Program (ALP).

 

This unique ALP complements our existing Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) Framework very well. Together, they form the ADSS Total 21CC Curriculum, which helps to develop EVERY ADMIRAL holistically.

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

The National RoboPreneur Carnival (NRPC) is an annual event organized by Admiralty Secondary School since 2007. The carnival is aimed at challenging young minds by stretching their potential in robotics and providing them an opportunity to exhibit their enterprising skills. Since 2009, the NRPC is jointly organized with Nanyang Polytechnic. 
 
This year, Admiralty Secondary School will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of NRPC. Thus Admiralty Secondary School hopes to enhance the learning experience for our participants and promote the culture of thinking, innovation and collaboration in problem solving. This will be next phase of NRPC moving forward.
