Programmes
Curriculum
Pathlight School’s curriculum is based on a holistic approach to education. The school offers Singapore’s National Curriculum (leading to PSLE, GCE O-Level and N-Level qualifications) as its base curriculum.

In addition to the mainstream academic subjects, the school also offers non-academic subjects such as daily living skills, leisure skills, Information Technology (IT) and PE/gymnastics. These form the foundation blocks of the school’s non-academic core curriculum to equip students on the autism spectrum with critical life readiness skills.
Values In Action 
Students are developed to be culturally sensitive, socially responsible citizens and active contributors through opportunities in school and in the community. The school’s approach includes utilising every moment as a teachable moment and ensuring that students learn through self-reflection and repeated practice.
IT and Design Academy 
Information Technology is a core curriculum for all Pathlight students. The school has a comprehensive roadmap to develop students’ digital competencies and get them future-ready for the digital age. 
Music & Movement
The school develops and maximises the potential of all Primary School Pathlight students through the Music & Movement Programme. Students undergo the tutelage of highly trained and competent staff to develop competencies in the cognitive, socio-emotional, physical, moral and aesthetics domains through music.

A Music Talent Development Programme (MTDP) is also in the works, where partnerships with tertiary institutes and industry partners will enable students to develop a career out of their passion and aptitude for music.
Satellite School Partnership 
The Satellite School Partnership model provides purposeful integration for Pathlight Secondary School students. Students are able to apply social skills learnt in the classroom to the real world. The model prepares them for a smoother transition to Institutes of Higher Learning and raises awareness of autism among mainstream communities.
Talent Development Programmes
The school takes a proactive stance in uncovering and cultivating abilities and talents through its robust and intentional talent development programmes. Students who show talent and commitment are placed in the school’s Signature Programmes to maximise their potential. 

Artist Development Programme
Students with artistic talent are placed under the mentorship of professional artists and given opportunities to showcase their art at public exhibitions and translate them into merchandise to earn royalties. 

Dance Talent Development Programme 
Students who demonstrate an aptitude and passion for dance are trained by professional dance trainers. They are given opportunities to perform and obtain professional dance certifications.

Bennett Peng Hui

Bennett Peng Hui - Pathlight School
Bennett Peng Hui is a driven and resilient overcomer. From an introverted, non-verbal child who had challenges with communication, he is now an outspoken student who lends his voice to social causes.

Although Bennett had difficulties coping with academic learning when he first joined Pathlight School, the autism-friendly strategies put in place by the school have helped to scaffold his learning and build his communication skills. Today, he has progressed to take all his subjects at Standard Level for his Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) in 2021.

Bennett has grown in confidence and actively steps out of his comfort zone to promote social causes. He was appointed as one of the school’s Kindness Ambassadors for the 2020 Friends of Singa (FOS) campaign. He also led his peers in initiatives such as writing “Thank You” notes for healthcare workers during the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Bennett is an inspiration to others – that they can achieve their aspirations if they are willing to persevere and take charge of their growth and learning.
