Teachers accommodate different learning styles by varying the modes of assessments such as research projects, book reports and oral presentations, allowing students to demonstrate the skills and knowledge they have acquired.

The School runs a Big Brothers and Big Sisters Scheme, in which elder students take care of younger ones. Free after-school tutorial classes are provided. Each junior form student is required to join a uniform group, an arts group or a sports team. It is hoped that students can learn independence and self care in the groups.
