School Philosophy, Culture and Ethos
Whitley Secondary School believes that education is a journey of self-discovery and hence we seek to provide a holistic education with opportunities for students to discover and develop their strengths, interests and talents. In building a learning community, we develop Whitleyans to be self-directed learners and confident persons, grounded in the pursuit of Knowledge and values of Responsibility and Discipline. In role-modelling the values of Respect, Integrity and Sportsmanship, we nurture active contributors and concerned citizens who serve and care for their family, school and community. They are rooted to the nation, yet global in perspectives.

Special Student Development Programmes Offered
We are committed to creating the Whitley Experience which is focused on building a strong foundation for academic success and developing students' interests and strengths through core academic and student development programmes. The school's Learning for Life Programme, "Active Citizenship for Social Change", seeks to nurture active concerned citizens. Focused on building empathy and ownership of societal issues, it provides opportunities for every Whitleyan to hone his skills in design thinking to better understand the needs of the community, co-construct solutions or advocate for social causes. The school's Applied Learning Programme, "Speech Communication Arts", nurtures students to be confident and self-directed learners with a curriculum that enhances communication skills through speech and art forms such as public speaking and drama. We have a Talent Development Programme to nurture students' academic strengths, providing training opportunities such as Author-in-Residence, debating and Olympiad training, and challenging students to excel through participation in competitions and projects. Another key element of our school programmes is our focus on leadership development and building of qualities such as resilience, team work, empathy, sound planning, among others. This is done through our cohort camps, student leaders programme and Overseas Service Learning.
