Curriculum Framework

The Nanyang Integrated Programme (IP) is a six-year programme for Nanyang Girls’ High School (NYGH) students, with years 1-4 spent at NYGH and years 5-6 at Hwa Chong Institution. The programme provides the flexibility to offer a customised curriculum leading to the GCE ‘A’ levels.

In NYGH, we believe students are keen to learn and are highly driven. The programme therefore aims to provide an enriching and challenging learning experience for high-ability students of diverse talents and background, and is built upon the school’s extensive heritage and culture of bilingualism, excellence and service.

At NYGH, we want our students to become respected members of society and agents of positive change.

The aim of our curriculum is to nurture and develop the Nanyang student into:

  1. a Woman of Character;
  2. an Empowered Learner; and
  3. an Agent of Change.

NYGH is where they grow in their knowledge and understanding and develop competencies and dispositions to prepare them for work and for life (refer to table below for the specific competencies).
