In the Classroom

Middle School


We recognise that the years between ages 13 and 16 are vitally important, as young people meet the challenges of adolescence and creating healthy relationships with their peers, while acquiring the skills and values necessary for lifelong learning. 

During these years our academic emphasis is on providing a sound grounding in essential learning areas while expanding the range of subject options. We encourage independent learning, and begin preparing students for the NCEA assessments that commence in Year 11. Year 9 students are tested in a nationally-moderated assessment that serves as a benchmark against which students, teachers and families can measure progress.

Key goals of the Middle School are to encourage students to learn self-discipline and organisational skills, become socially responsible, and take responsibility for their own learning. We provide an environment that gives students a sense of security and the motivation to become independent, lifelong learners.
