Autonomous Schools were established in 1994 to provide pupils with quality education within the framework of a non-independent status but with greater autonomy devolved to the schools. Autonomous Schools give parents more options in the choice of quality schools for their children.
Autonomous Schools are given additional funding to enable them to develop a wider and better range of programmes to stretch the capability of their pupils. The additional flexibility and funding given to Autonomous Schools have enabled these schools to offer their pupils a much-enhanced teaching and learning environment. Apart from additional and improved facilities, pupils also benefit from a more innovative curriculum as well as a more varied and wider range of enrichment programmes. Autonomous Schools have been able to provide a well-rounded quality education that stretches each pupil to his fullest potential.
