DIRECT SCHOOL ADMISSION (DSA)
St Hilda’s Secondary - Direct School Admission (DSA-Sec) for 2024 Secondary One Students
St Hilda’s Secondary School (SHSS) would like to invite Primary 6 students to apply for admission to Year 1 in 2024 under the Direct School Admission into secondary schools (DSA-Sec) scheme.
Direct School Admission (DSA) scheme provides students with the opportunity to seek admission to a secondary school, based on a diverse range of specific academic and non-academic achievements and talents that they can demonstrate beyond the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE). Primary 6 (P6) students who do not participate in the DSA-Sec will continue to seek admission based on their PSLE score through the Secondary 1 (S1) Posting.
DSA Talent Area
SHSS welcomes students who are keen to develop their talent through 6 sports:
Girls: Floorball, Netball and Volleyball
Boys: Badminton, Hockey and Volleyball

Parents and students are encouraged to choose schools wisely based on the student’s aptitudes and strengths, bearing in mind the schools’ academic and non-academic requirements, and the programmes available to develop the area of talent.
Students who are successfully admitted to the school via DSA are expected to honour their commitment to the school, and participate in the activities related to the talent they are selected for from year 1-4.
