14 secondary schools in Singapore merge in 2017

Falling enrollment at these secondary schools means they lack the critical mass for good programmes, says the Ministry of Education.

14 secondary schools have merged from Jan 1, 2017.

The schools are being merged because Singapore's declining birth rate over the past two decades has led to decreasing cohort sizes of school-going children and demand for places.

The Ministry of Education said that schools needed "sufficient critical mass" to offer a good range of educational programmes and CCAs.

Here is the list of merged schools, and what some of them are doing to manage the transition and help students bond.
