Students in the Middle School (Grades 6 to 8) aim to discover where their strengths lie and offers them the basis for an informed choice when they opt for GCSE subjects at the end of Grade 8. As students progress to the Middle School they further refine the core interdisciplinary skills initiated in the Primary School and have more subject specialist teachers guiding them in the fundamental subject specific skills that they will require for higher studies in related areas.
Students have a broad and balanced range of subjects with their freedom of choice limited to language selection. The programme on offer ensures that students have the opportunity to develop in all relevant areas from physical, technical, creative, numerate and deductive, rational and experimental, empathic and evaluative and communication in more than one language.
The Middle School programme is based on a high school-style timetable, where specialised teachers are used for all subjects. Students' organisation skills are tested and developed with the tutor teacher playing an important role. Tutors work closely with the heads of grade to ensure the students' pastoral needs are well-catered for and students are happily and progressing at a suitable rate.
