The Study Room is a one-stop centre where parents can trust their children with us and where students can love their books, score for the exams and learn much more than what school has to offer.
Affectionately called “Study Room,” because that’s where we’ve revised for examinations with our best friends, played pranks on fellow mates and dreamed about the future. This is what our school symbolizes- a place to study, dream, have fun and help one another to get ahead in life.
Founded by two buddies who have known each other since their NS days, the Study Room uses creative news writing and speech to improve a child’s English because we know the importance of the languages— they are required for university admissions and often a deciding factor at work and in life, when we have to make that first impression. We also provide Maths & Science classes by engaging your children through real-world scenarios and role play.

Why should I enrol my kids in the Study Room?
We learned what parents want and don’t want for their kid’s education. Parents don’t want a cram school for their kids. What children need now is a place where they can have fun, start enjoying what they learn and still improve their grades.
My child is already swamped with schoolwork. I don’t want to overwhelm him/her with more supplementary classes.
Classes are fun, conducted with games and simulated scenarios so your child won’t feel like they are forced to attend the classes at all. The goal is to let them enjoy and learn at the same time.
I understand fun and getting students interested in the subjects are important. However, my son is in Primary 6. There’s no more time for that. I need to see results.
We agree. The P6 students will get a more exam-oriented class where we try to get them the score they are eyeing for. It will still be interesting, but we get more single-minded in helping them with their scores.
What about the different standards of the students in the class?
We have a very small class and we promise to limit the number of students to eight in a class. We know every student’s strength and weakness and we can give personal attention to every student. We are also in close contact with the parents to keep them updated on the child’s progress. We are on whatsapp with parents and are easily available by phone or e-mail to parents’ queries. This way, every student gets our attention. It’s almost like a one-to-one class.
I want to sign up my child for back-to-back classes. Will it be too tiring?
Our classes are always fun and we try to give them breaks in between. Many of our students do not find it tiring, and in fact, wish that our classes were longer!
Any hidden charges?
There’s no hidden charges. We believe in laying out facts to you because we are family. You pay for what you see. There are no material fees, no registration fees or other charges.

Physics tip: Always check decimal points and significant numbers in the final answers and don’t forget the units!
