Sports and games play a central role in equipping our students with values that are crucial in their development as leaders and contributing members of the society in future. In addition to our core values of Loyalty, Industry, Sincerity and Love, participation in sports also inculcates important values including discipline, team spirit and fair play in our students.
In the sporting arena, our sportsmen and sportswomen have achieved no less than 100 national titles over the school’s 55 years of history. For the achievements made, JSS is widely known as the ‘Sporting Powerhouse in the West’.

JSS Sports Excellence Programme

Sports Excellence Programme ensures that the rigorous sports training programme

strong support to help our sportsmen and sportswomen achieve academic
excellence. Supported by a team of dedicated and qualified coaches, teachers
and members of our Alumni Association, three of the key features of our Sports
Excellence Programme are:
Sports Master Classes
Students admitted into the school via DSA-Sports can look forward to attending master classes in areas including youth coaching and umpiring, sports psychology and principles of training by the relevant National Sports Associations and National Youth Sports Institute. By attending these classes, our sportsmen and sportswomen can acquire values and skills in and beyond the games.
Sponsored by our School Advisory Committee, our JSS Sports Scholarship seeks to recognise and motivate students with talent in Basketball or Volleyball to pursue their passion and grow their proficiency in these games.
The scholarship supports the recipient up to a maximum of 4/5 years of study in Jurong Secondary School depending on the course of study. A cash grant is given to students annually to subsidise expenses incurred in the purchase of textbooks and school fees, using the rates for a Singapore citizen as the base, as well as subsidise other expenses to support them in their pursuit of the game. In addition to the cash grant, the school provides full subsidy for these students’ participation in approved competitions and training fees incurred as part of the terms of the scholarship.
