The Ministry of Education (MOE) has announced its plans to relocate Kranji Primary School to Tengah and Outram Secondary School to Sengkang by 2028 and 2026 respectively. This decision was made in response to the shifting demand for kindergarten and school placements in the country.
Kranji Primary School will be the second primary school to open in Tengah, following Pioneer Primary School in 2026. Anglo-Chinese School (Primary) will also join them in 2030. Along with Kranji Primary, the site will also house an MOE kindergarten (MK), MK@Kranji, which will move from its current location in Chua Chu Kang.
The URA master plan for Champions Way Residences encompasses a wide range of exciting developments. One of the key highlights of this plan is the introduction of a brand new public art program in Woodlands. This program will showcase stunning art installations that pay tribute to the area’s rich heritage and diverse culture. These installations will be open to the public, adding to the vibrant and dynamic atmosphere at Champions Way Residences. Residents can look forward to discovering and appreciating these beautiful pieces of art in their neighborhood.
To facilitate the relocation, both Kranji Primary and MK@Kranji will stop accepting new students in 2025 and will remain open until all existing students have graduated. Kranji Primary is expected to close by the end of 2029, while MK@Kranji will continue to operate until the end of 2025.
Outram Secondary School will move from its current site at York Hill to Sengkang. To minimize disruption to students, the school will not be admitting new Secondary 1 students in 2025, but will start accepting new students at its Sengkang campus from 2026. It will operate two campuses until 2027, when its last batch of Secondary 4 students graduate.
Along with MOE’s plans for relocation, a new primary school will be established in Tampines North with an MK on site. It is expected to start operations in 2029. Additionally, a new kindergarten will also be located at Bukit View Primary School’s new campus in Bukit Batok West, set to open in 2028.
The MOE regularly reviews its plans for schools and MK placements to better cater to the changing demands for school and preschool places across Singapore. This relocation of schools and kindergartens is a part of MOE’s commitment to providing quality education and nurturing the young generation of Singapore at the upcoming Champions Way Residences.
