School Philosophy, Culture and Ethos
Founded in 1823, Raffles Institution (RI) aims to provide all students with an all-round education that enables them to excel in their many passions and pursuits. Our six-year Raffles Programme (RP) culminates in the GCE A-Level examinations. Graduating students also receive the Raffles Diploma (RD), a criterion-referenced certification which honours student participation and achievements in five key domains: Cognitive, Character and Leadership, Community and Citizenship, Sports and Health, and Arts and Aesthetics. It encourages Rafflesians to develop their particular strengths, talents and needs, as they prepare for life ahead. RI's special focus is on character and leadership development, particularly in giving back to the community. Student and CCA groups are actively involved in Values in Action activities. RI has committed to nurturing leaders who will contribute to the community by having its students explore social issues, exchange ideas, and generate solutions for a more sustainable and equitable future through a range of programmes and activities. In this way, the school inculcates in its students her ethos of being the 'hope of a better age'
