The Middle and Senior school curriculum is offered from Grade 6 through to Grade 10 and aims to help students develop their personal understanding, their emerging sense of self and their responsibility in their community.
The middle and senior school curriculum is divided into two parts – part one which is designed for Grades 6 to 8 and part two in Grades 9 and 10.
This division is designed primarily to ensure the right coverage to the right age groups at the right time – but also to ensure that students see themselves progressing and schieving specific milestones over a five year period.
