Welcome from the Head of Middle School
The Middle School is committed to supporting young people through their adolescence. It encourages them to discover, explore and engage in their learning.
Students in Years 6 to 9 develop life skills through our extensive outdoor education and pastoral care programs; discover the creative and performing arts; explore sporting and extra-curricular opportunities; investigate science and mathematical challenges; and serve others through their involvement in community service programs and student leadership.
As an accredited Healthy Minds School we demonstrate a commitment to the following 3 Golden Keys of school-based wellbeing for our Year 8 students by: explicitly teaching the psychological skills of mental health and wellbeing to students; having our teachers undergo training in the latest theory and concepts around resilience, student wellbeing and preventing psychological difficulties and; by engaging our parents with parenting strategies and ideas to help them promote the healthy psychological development of their child.
We cater for a wide range of student learning needs through the benefits of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (MYP). It offers students a wide range of academic experiences that will help them develop the knowledge, attitudes and skills they need for their Senior School years and beyond. For more information on the curriculum offered in the Middle School, please view our Middle School Handbook.
Students are encouraged to think globally and take risks with their learning.
Academically-based activities and excursions complement and enrich their learning.
Leadership opportunities help students to progress, not only academically, but socially and emotionally. Our pastoral care of students is highly regarded and solidly underpins our educational program.
Our Middle School is committed to encouraging all students to achieve their personal best.
