Primary at the British Council is a three-stage, six-year programme designed to support your child on the pathway to a successful PSLE. Our courses supplement learning in local schools and target areas that we know Singaporean students find most challenging. We believe that having greater world knowledge gives our students an edge in school oral, comprehension and composition activities.
