A very warm welcome to Anglican High School (AHS)! As we approach our 70th year of service to society, we are grateful to God for His many blessings to us as a vibrant learning community founded on traditional Chinese values and Christian beliefs. Set up in 1956 by 5 Chinese speaking congregations of the Anglican Diocese in Singapore, the school has progressed over time to become a leading educational institution providing a quality brand of holistic education for all students passing through its gates. AHS is Singapore’s only Protestant SAP secondary school and this unique identity has indelibly shaped the ethos of the school positively over the years.
AHS’s tradition of excellence extends beyond the academic field. With its philosophical approach of 学做人, where students learn what it means to thrive as contributing citizens and purposeful individuals in the 21st century, all the while holding on to sound values and traditions, which ground them for life’s many changes and challenges. In short, AHS seeks to support the development of graduates who shine academically and more importantly, contribute to their families and communities through an outworking of prosocial values. They are accomplished individuals who instinctively seek not their own interests but that of others first, reflecting both Christian servant leadership and the communitarian spirit of Chinese leaders. The Chinese saying ‘取之于社会，用之于社会’ is apt here and best describes the spirit of our AHS alumni in wanting to give back.
With its foundations soundly set on cherished traditions, AHS actively has an eye on the future, actively utilising pedagogies that encourage students to acquire and develop 21st century competencies such as adaptive thinking; these are the important competencies that keep our students flourishing both in the present and future ages. In a fast-changing world, our graduates need to be fluent in these areas to thrive and AHS provides the appropriate amount of challenge and support in our Student Development Experiences to prepare them to be so. Our Signature programmes such as ACTSperience, iSCoRe and the AHS Global Classroom, etc are designed to not only stimulate our students cognitively, but also to support their understanding of varying contexts and perspectives and knowing how to customise their actions to suit particular purposes.
Ultimately, we believe that every AHS student has the potential to succeed in a large variety of fields. With the right challenge and nurturing from the entire community, they are capable of achieving great things and doing the “wonderful works” (Ephesians 2:10) that God has prepared for them in advance to do. At the same time, we also provide an environment where students feel accepted, loved and a sense of belonging, not because of what they achieve in life, but because they are God’s creation, “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14) first and foremost. In such a school, students feel safe to grow by learning from mistakes, picking themselves up from failures as these setbacks do not define them, but are rather part and parcel of the process of learning and growing.
Hope that our website gives you a good sense of life and learning at Anglican High School!
