English Ingenium, Bilingualism & Humanities Programme
English Ingenium Programme
The English Ingenium Programme aims to nurture our students’ flair and passion for the English Language. Students will be groomed to be confident communicators and purposeful writers through our curricular programmes and out-of-classroom activities. They will also be exposed to advanced literary works that will deepen their intellectual growth and push them to think critically about the world at large. Students selected for the programme will attend plays and take part in national and international competitions to nurture their passion in the language.

MTL Bilingualism Programme
Our Bilingualism Programme aims to improve our students’ language proficiency and prepare them for an increasingly globalized world. Guided by our teachers, students will hone their creative writing skills and publish their works in《放飞梦想》, our school publication. Budding student writers will be given the opportunity to join the editorial committee and represent the school in the SPH Student Correspondents' Club. To ignite their passion, students will also participate in public speaking competitions, debates, seminars and Learning Journeys.
