From Head of the Middle School

Within the Middle School, we believe that every child learns best and is most engaged when they are valued and challenged. Yet we recognise that what is appropriately challenging for one student may be too easy or too difficult for one of their peers. We focus on differentiation across all subjects – ensuring that every student is challenged and supported to achieve success in their learning. All of our classes are mixed ability with students provided opportunities to develop themselves as learners.

Our dedicated and gifted teachers use a variety of strategies to support the learning of students and utilise the latest tools and technologies to ensure our students are engaged as they explore the National Curriculum.

We also create new horizons for our students as they attempt practical based subjects such as Woodwork, Metalwork, Home Economics and Textiles as well as the traditional favourites of Art, Music, Drama, Digital Technologies and Sport.

Students in the Middle School can involve themselves in a wide range of co-curricular activities including musicals, sporting teams, Arts exhibitions and tours, gifted and talented programs and special interest groups.
