Secondary Programmes

Today, Madrasah Alsagoff Al-Arabiah has about 300 students enrolled across its 12-year educational program. Throughout the first 10 years at the Primary and Secondary level, students build a strong foundation in Islamic subjects, learning and memorizing the Qur’an and hadith, as well as other essential subjects that include tafsir, tauhid, fiqh, sirah (Islamic history), and akhlak.


The Diploma in Islamic Studies (DPI) Program that was introduced in 2013 offers our students a chance to further develop their understanding of Islam with subjects like Fiqh Mu’amalat, Usul Fiqh, Tarikh Tasyri’ and many more. With the Diploma in Islamic Studies, our students are well-prepared to continue their education in prestigious Islamic institutions in the Middle East and Malaysia such as the Al-Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt, Yarmouk University in Jordan, Univesiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM), Kolej Universiti Islam Selangor (KUIS) in Malaysia and others.


In keeping up with the rigorous educational landscape of Singapore, Madrasah Alsagoff Al-Arabiah follows the Singapore national curriculum closely. At the end of Primary Six, our students sit for the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE). Our school also offers subjects at the O-Levels and A-Levels at the end of the Secondary and Pre-University levels respectively.


Madrasah Alsagoff Al-Arabiah is largely self-funded through the Syed Mohamed Ahmed Alsagoff (SMA) Wakaf, with occasional grants from the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (MUIS) and contributions from society. Madrasah Alsagoff Al-Arabiah is recognized by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) as a heritage school.

EMMS Department (Secondary Level)

Subjects Offered

At the Secondary levels, we continue to uphold the vision of the founder of the school, Syed Mohamed bin Ahmad Alsagoff and stress on the importance of having a strong command of the Arabic and English Languages.

 

We prepare our students to be effectively trilingual - English Language, Arabic Language and Malay Language.  We believe that having a strong spoken and written command of these three languages will give our students better opportunities to engage with the global audience.

 

Similarly, we also place importance in the teaching of Mathematics and Science as they are important fields of acquired knowledge.

 

Our Secondary 1 to Secondary 4 curriculum is in accordance with or may be adapted from the latest syllabus set by the Ministry of Education, Singapore.

 

By the end of Secondary Four, our students will sit for their O-Level examinations. At the minimum, they will be offered English Language, Malay Language, Arabic Language, Islamic Religious Knowledge (IRK) and Malay Literature (Sastera Melayu). Based on their results in Secondary Three, they may also be offered Mathematics and Combined Science. For Combined Science, they will either be offered Science (Phy/Chem) or Science (Bio/Chem).

CO-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES (CCA)
  • ​Our CCA activities are chosen to ensure that each student from Primary 5 to DPI 2 has a balanced range of experiential learning experiences throughout their education journey in our school. They will experience varied insights through sports and home economics which we believe will prepare them for their future. 

  • Being involved in CCA activities is important because it promotes friendships among students from diverse backgrounds as they learn, play and grow together with strong, healthy bodies and minds. Participation in CCA also fosters social integration and deepens students' sense of belonging, commitment and sense of responsibility so they will become confident leaders capable of serving the community, country and religion.

ARK Framework

In Madrasah Alsagoff Al-Arabiah, our ARK Inclusive Framework initiates from the school vision to nurture noble women exemplary of the Ummahatul Mukminin.

The meaning of ARK

ARK means Arabic and Revealed Knowledge. In our department, the objective of learning Arabic Language is for students to deepen the understanding of the revealed knowledge. Apart from that, we hope that students will become effective communicators of the language as well as to be able to integrate the language with the learning of their religion. The Arabic curriculum in our department focuses on the four core language skills such as Reading, Writing, Speaking and listening. Arabic Language subject Ibooks have been progressively developed for the student with added interactive functions to cultivate joy in discovering the beauty of Arabic Language.

 

Revealed knowledge subjects are taught fully in Arabic across the level to expose students to tradition (turath)  of the revealed knowledge which is in Arabic. Our curriculum is designed to educate students about the fundamentals of Revealed Knowledge and to enable them to implement and practice the knowledge in their life. These fundamentals are Tauhid, Quran & Tajwid, Fiqh, Akhlak Islamiyyah, Sirah, Tafsir Quran and Hadith Nabawi. The Department is currently developing the iBooks for Revealed Knowledge Subjects across the level.
