School Philosophy, Culture and Ethos
The school places strong emphasis on both performance and moral character for staff and students, with excellence being a key attitude trait. In NBSS, both staff and the students embrace the core values (ExC2ITe); Excellence, Care, Courage, Integrity and Teamwork, which anchor the way all will behave. This is also reflected in the school's motto: Enitamur in Alitora (Be Our Best - aim to achieve as high as possible, be at one's best and inspire others). The school thus sees excellence both as a value and an attitude while success is the outcome of exhibiting excellence.

Special Student Development Programmes Offered
NBSS actively applies questioning techniques as a key pedagogical approach to get students to reflect and acquire knowledge. The school offers Talent Development Programme (TDP) for students who show keen interest and potential in cognitive development. As part of the programme, students hone their communication and presentation skills, and gain increased exposure through participation in local and international academic competitions. Students also develop creative academic games and organise competitions for primary school students in the area of English Language, Mathematics and Science. The school uses the Pyramid of Success (PoS) as a key frame for character formation, anchored on the development of moral and performance character traits in every student. Aligned to this, the school's Learning for Life Programme (LLP) is "Character Education through Sports" where students learn to play a variety of sports, are given exposure to varied roles in different sports and exercise character traits of PoS. The school offers both Applied Learning Programme (ALP) in Art and Enhanced Art Programme (EAP). Through these, students acquire both breadth and depth of art learning in media such as drawing and painting, character and fashion design, visual communications, ceramic art and digital media. Signature programmes include the annual art exhibition and overseas study trip, an Art CCA and the Art Talent Development Programme (ATDP). Students regularly interact and work with practitioners through artist talks, student-practitioner collaborative projects and the unprecedented Learn to Curate Programme developed in collaboration with the National Gallery Singapore.
