Curriculum Followed

In the Middle School your child will follow a combined curricula taking elements from the English National Curriculum and the International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC).

The English National Curriculum forms the basis for the content of our challenging program of study. It builds on prior learning and prepares your child to explore in greater depth the concepts, processes and skills of specific subjects. 

The IMYC offers a thematic approach to learning which brings learning to life for your child. The program offers a lively, motivational and cross curricula approach and makes your child love coming to school every day and helps them to develop greater confidence in their learning and its relevance to their world. 

Personalization for Secondary School Students

The Middle School years are a particularly important time in your child's life as they grow from child to adolescent. These are important time for influencing the crucial decisions your child will make about their future and the role that they will play in the world. We work closely with every student and their families, to provide the personal guidance and support needed to ensure a successful transition as they progress through Secondary School. 

Subjects and Skills Taught

The Middle School curriculum extends students knowledge, skills and understanding in:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Foreign Languages including French, Spanish and Latin
  • World History and Geography
  • The Sciences
  • The Arts – Visual Art, Music, Drama
  • Design Technology and Computer Technology
  • Physical Education – Sport, Gym, Dance and Fitness 

Languages

Most schools will only offer your child the opportunity to learn one language as part of their compulsory education, typically Spanish. Here your child will develop an excellent grasp of Spanish but also learn to speak excellent French with the option to study Latin.
