Explore schools and learn how posting works

Choosing a secondary school for your child depends on their strengths, interests and abilities. Learn about the considerations when choosing a school and how the posting process works to make an informed decision on your child's school choices and increase their chance of being posted to a school of choice. Then use SchoolFinder to explore and shortlist suitable schools.

Find up-to-date information about the S1 posting process on the MOE website. Use the SchoolFinder to search and shortlist schools using easy-to-use filters such as location, CCAs, subjects and PSLE score range.

With the availability and easy access to online information about the S1 posting process and secondary schools, we will not be printing the information booklet on secondary schools from 2022.
