Level of study: Primary and High School
The middle years (students aged between 11-14 years) are an unequalled time of development whilst at school - a time of huge change. Challenge, excellence, excitement, relevance and the development of character, led by trustworthy mentors within a genuinely supportive and values-driven environment, are vital for an effective education within these years.
Middle School curriculum
We believe that all gifts and talents are God-given and should be developed in a way which is pleasing to Him.
There are many varied courses and subjects offered and the College aims to resource and to teach students in an excellent manner.
In Years 6 and 7, students are required to undertake a range of compulsory subjects, which enables students to gain grounding in essential areas as well as experiencing the range of elective subjects the College offers in later years.
In Years 8 and 9, students can select from a wide range of specialist elective subjects. This helps them explore the options in preparation for Senior School.
Teaching, focused on what's relevant
Years 6 and 7 provide students with a broad foundation for studies in subsequent years. Students will have a ‘home teacher’ for a number of subjects, supported by an increasing range of teachers for more specialised subjects.
Year 6 subjects: English, Mathematics, Science, Studies of Society & Environment (Geography and History) and Bible Studies; complemented by Art, Health, Integrated Learning, Languages (Spanish and Japanese), Music, and Physical Education.
Year 7 subjects: English, Mathematics, Science and Bible Studies; currently complemented by: Art, Business, Dramatic Arts, Geography, Spanish, Health & Physical Education, History, Integrated Learning, Japanese, Media Studies, and Music.
Building on solid foundations in Years 8 and 9
In addition to studying a range of core subjects, students in Years 8 and 9 are given an opportunity to explore their gifts and talents through an elective program.
Core subjects: English, Mathematics, Science, Bible Studies, Wellbeing, and Sport.
Elective subjects: Art, Business, Drama, Geography, Spanish (Year 8), German (Year 9), Graphics, Health & Physical Education, History, Home Economics, Digital Technology, Japanese, Media Studies, and Music. Elective subjects are broken into a number of units (semester or term long).
Students choose specific units from the range of subjects. This provides them with a significant opportunity to explore our diverse subject offering.
