Having represented Raffles Institution as student-athletes, both founders recognise the importance of blending sports and play into children's routines. This led to the launch of the KidsExcel programme. In 2012, KidsExcel was founded and conceptualised as a Sports and Academic programme to help level the playing field for disadvantaged children. 


A holistic development programme, KidsExcel comprises weekly English and or Maths classes, coupled with sports and physical games. This crucial mix of work and play allow pupils to improve not only their subject understanding but build valuable

social skills and friendships as well.


KidsExcel has been running for over 9 years with

over 10,000 students going through the programme.

From the developers of KidsExcel, UnRavel! Learning and other academic programmes run island-wide over the past 10 years, we believe strongly that all children should grow up to be life-long learners - always asking, always exploring and always adapting to change.


Our MOE syllabus-aligned programmes build strong foundations in English, Math and Science. Students are constantly challenged to think ahead and out-of-the-box. 

"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember.

Involve me and I learn."
