The Middle Years curriculum is designed to ensure our students successfully transition into secondary school through the development of effective study skills and encouraging independence and increased responsibility for their own learning.
Our focus in the middle years of learning is on student literacy and numeracy, ensuring the necessary foundations that all learners need for success. The curriculum is robust and vibrant, personalised to the needs of all our learners in every classroom.
In Year 7 and 8, the Middle Years students study a range of core and elective subjects.
Humanities (incorporating History, Geography, Business and Civics and Citizenship)
Health & Physical Education
Industrial Technologies - Graphics, Digital Technology
Arts - Visual Art, Drama, Music
In Year 9, students have the first opportunity to choose electives while continuing to maintain a strong focus on the essential core subjects. This enables them to begin to develop their interests and talents in preparation for the Senior Schooling journey.
Industrial Technology and Design
Geography, Civics and Citizenship
