A Community of Dynamic, Confident and Caring Learners
To nurture agile minds and build character through holistic education
School Philosophy, Culture and Ethos
Marsiling Secondary School is implementing Full Subject-Based Banding from 2022. We aim to seed the skills and dispositions of confident learners and develop caring individuals with a heart for the society. We pride ourselves on providing a holistic education that develops our students into respectful, responsible and resilient individuals. MSS adopts a whole-school positive discipline approach towards developing all Marsilians. “G.R.I.T” meaning Growth, Resourcefulness, Innovation and Tenacity, serves as a guide to shape our school culture. Our literacy and numeracy programmes strengthen the foundations of our weaker students and stretch the more able ones. We are also committed to staff professional development to ensure that our staff members are competent in helping students experience success in both the academic and non-academic domains. There is a strong and pervasive ethos of care and our students feel that the school is a safe environment for learning and growth.

Special Student Development Programmes Offered
It is the aspiration of the school that all Marsilians graduate as dynamic, confident and caring learners who are skilled in 21st century competencies and care for self, family and nation. We believe these qualities can be developed through our distinctive programmes which complement our forward looking curriculum that caters to students’ interests, strengths, abilities and learning styles.

Our Learning for Life Programme (LLP). Values And Leadership development through Outdoor cURriculum (VALOUR) – offers unique learning opportunities incorporating adventure and leadership skills which enhance students’ self-esteem, self-confidence, independence and socio-emotional competencies.
