Direct School Admission Exercise-Secondary (DSA-Sec 2020)
For Student Admission to Year One 2021
Dunman High School is inviting promising Primary Six students to join our Dunman High Programme (DHP) in January 2021. Our 6-year Integrated Programme prepares the students for the A-Level Examinations without them having to go through the O-Level Examinations. The programme provides academically talented students with an enriched curriculum that aims to: develop intellectual depth and a passion for life and learning; inculcate active citizenry and develop a global outlook; build strong bilingual proficiency and gain a deep understanding of China and Chinese culture. DHP students are morally upright leaders equipped with skills to succeed in the future, in particular, the new Asian era.
If you are currently studying in a Singapore Primary School or equivalent, and would like the opportunity to become a valuable member of our Dunmanian family, you may consider applying for admission through Direct School Admission-Secondary (DSA-Sec), apart from the Secondary One Posting. Participation in DSA-Sec is optional and is based on students’ achievements in specific academic and non-academic areas beyond PSLE. You will find important information and instructions about gaining admission to Dunman High School through DSA-Sec on this website.
We welcome you to explore what Dunman High School has to offer.

Advice on choice of DSA schools
- Parents and students are encouraged to choose schools wisely based on the student’s aptitudes and strengths, bearing in mind the schools’ academic and non-academic requirements, and the programmes available to develop the area of talent.
- Students who are successfully admitted to the school via DSA are expected to honour their commitment to the school for the duration of the 6-year Integrated Programme, and participate in the activities related to the talent they are selected for from Year 1 to 4.
