Middle School

Students in Years 7 to 10 study a core curriculum and continue with their study of a second language. As students move into Year 9 they begin to have more choice in their course of study.

In addition to a broad and challenging curriculum Year 10 students begin careers education and work experience.

Small class size recognises and caters for the unique developmental needs of middle school students. Excursions and camps broaden student learning beyond the classroom and help to build strong learning relationships.

Classroom teachers in the Middle School work closely with support staff providing programs in gifted and talented education, special education, ESL and information technology to cater for individual needs, with an iPad program introduced to students at Year 10.
