These schools receive MOE funding and can admit up to 5% of their Secondary One intake on a discretionary basis through the Direct School Admission (DSA) exercise, so that a more diverse range of student achievements and talents can be recognised.

 

Anglo-Chinese School (Barker Road) was re-awarded niche programme status in 2013.

 

The niche programmes have been re-named the ALP AND LLP Programmes and respectively titled  'Developing Effective Communicators through Drama, Debates and Public Speaking' as well as 'Building Character through Sports and Outdoor Education'.
