Mr Nick Chan.jpg
A warm welcome to Northbrooks Secondary School (NBrSS)!

Northbrooks Secondary School, built upon very strong foundations and principles laid by the School Team of inspiring educators, has grown and come a long way over the past 16 years.  I would like to thank our former School Leaders, in particular, our former Principal, Mrs Helen Chong, for their efforts in forging a strong school spirit. I am most privileged and honoured to be working with our dynamic NBrSS School Team to continue the good work.

Our school vision is Every Brooksian a Champion, Impacting the Community. We foster in every Brooksian the Champion Learning Mindset, i.e. a mindset with a strong desire to learn and improve and bounce back in the face of adversities. We want to instil in our students this growth mindset, developing grit and resilience that are essential for success in life, especially in this day and age. In turn, our Brooksians will develop the capacity to serve by leading and lead in serving our school, our community and our nation. To stay firmly in our course, our school mission guides us in our everyday efforts to empower Brooksians to develop a passion for learning, strong moral values and a keen sense of duty and community. We aim to imbue in every Brooksian our core values of Graciousness, Integrity, Fortitude, Teamwork, Empathy and Discipline (GIFTED) in their Brooksian education experience.

Guided by this core mission, our purpose is to make a conscious effort to design a plethora of deep learning experiences and quality interactions within the school and beyond for our students to explore and thereby discover and ultimately maximise their potential. 

To provide a quality academic experience for our students, our teachers deploy appropriate teaching pedagogical approaches and learning strategies in our curriculum to allow students to attain a deeper understanding and better grasp of the discipline. Anchored on GIFTED values, our co-curriculum focuses on the student holistic development in ChAMPS (Character, Aesthetics, Moral, Physical and Social) domains where our students are expected to be fully engaged in the schools' activities. Some of these activities such as our Aerospace Programme (Applied Learning Programme) and Adventure.Character.Environment (A.C.E) Outdoor Education Programme (Learning for Life Programme) are specially designed to provide that distinctive and memorable experience for our students. As partners-in-education, our Parents Support Group, School Advisory Committee, Alumni and Community Partners partner us to create that added value for our student educational experiences. In addition, our School Team of caring and dedicated teachers, and administrative and support staff work closely together to deliver our Quality Academic Experience and Quality Programme for ChAMPS. Ultimately, all of us play an integral role in our students’ successes. 

In this school, we remain steadfast in our beliefs and our conviction in making a positive impact on our Brooksians. Together, our Brooksians will strive to do their very best and stay rooted, serving to lead and leading to serve our community and nation with humility.
