- School Vision
Gessians of Excellence, Standing and Significance.
- School Mission
Our school is a community that nurtures the best in each and strives ever ONWARD.
- School Philosophy, Culture and Ethos
Founded in 1885, the school motto "ONWARD" has inspired generations of Gessians to be forward looking and active in their contributions to the community and nation. GESS strongly believes in providing a quality school experience that will enable all students to be innovative thinkers, collaborative learners, principled leaders, and love embodied, fulfilling the four aspects of our Gessian portrait. We believe that education in the 21st century is about nurturing the whole person in an environment where every student and staff member is valued, encouraged and empowered to excel, learn and care for others, and where their accomplishments are celebrated. The school designs a wide range of academic and student development programmes to provide students with both formal and informal learning opportunities. The school's CCE curriculum engages every student's head, heart and hands, and all of them will go through programmes such as level camps and community and youth leadership events that focus on developing self-mastery skills and enable them to contribute to the community. As a pilot school for the Full Subject-Based Banding (FSBB), GESS offers greater customisation of learning based on students' subject-specific strengths and interests. This is aligned with our Founder's vision of enabling students of all backgrounds and abilities to learn and grow as a community.
