OUR SCHOOL CURRICULUM AIMS TO DEVELOP STUDENTS WHO ARE LEARNERS, LEADERS, READERS AND WRITERS, MATHEMATICIANS, CREATORS, INQUIRERS, INNOVATORS, PROBLEM-SOLVERS, COLLABORATORS AND COMMUNICATORS.
Intermediate is a unique time where emerging adolescents take the values and understandings they have developed in the early years of their lives and start to test and apply them in the world. They begin to think critically about a wider range of ideas and issues. They grow in confidence and take on challenges with more responsibility. They basically unleash their immense potential at a rapid rate!
We believe successful intermediate schooling caters to this growth by offering 11 to 13 year olds a wide-ranging curriculum while giving them opportunity to specialize in areas of interest or talent. We take seriously our responsibility to ensure our youth are in a place of “readiness” for all that life has to offer them, both in High School and beyond. We pride ourselves in being able to do this with specialist teachers, in specialist spaces, with specialist resources.
