What Sets This School Apart

Our pedagogy focussed on individual learning or our 'Nexus Way’. You will see this as you walk around, classrooms are designed to be flexible, collaborative and innovative. Teachers are rarely leading from the front, and children are not sitting at desks in a row.

We are an Apple Distinguished school, which means we use technology to enhance our learning experiences in innovative ways. An example of this is in our Makerspaces which is where art and science come together and children create. For example when Pokemon Go came out our learners wanted to move the virtual to reality. They analysed, and created a Pokemon ball with 3D printers. Then they added electronics to flip it open, allowing them to ‘catch them all’.

Exciting New Developments

We are building a brand new campus in 2020 which will be in Aljunied. The campus has been built around our learning philosophy and its been a joy to watch ideas and concepts come to life architecturally. In preparation for this we are road testing all the latest equipment at our current camp to know its potential in the learning environment.

School Culture
Our culture at Nexus is ‘Embracing Diversity. Challenging Minds’. This is our DNA and can be seen from our style of learning, our diverse nationalities of learners and staff to our education coaching programmes. The atmosphere here is warm, inviting and genuine. You will instantly know you are with friends when you walk around the school. Learners are happy, engaged and supported.
