Full Subject-Based Banding (Full SBB)
Subject-Based Banding (SBB) allows students of the Normal Academic and Normal Technical stream to take up subjects of varying difficulty levels that are suited to their pace of learning.
If your child/ward is eligible to take a subject at a higher academic level, you will be informed by your child/ward’s form teacher and receive a notification via Parents Gateway (PG).
You will need to accept or reject the SBB offer via PG. Please take note that you only need to indicate a response for subjects that your child/ward is eligible for.
Full Subject-Based Banding
Juying Secondary School is one of secondary schools which will implement Full Subject-Based Banding (Full SBB) from 2022 onwards.
Purpose of Full SBB
With Full SBB, 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.
By 2024, secondary schools will have implemented the following aspects of Full SBB:
Offering of Humanities subjects at a more demanding level from Secondary 2; and
Mixed form classes with the provision of a common curriculum.
