Level of study: Primary and High School
Stuartholme offers an extensive curriculum, based on teaching students ‘how to learn’, rather than memorizing, rehearsing and recalling information. This focus on deeper learning means Stuartholme girls graduate with a much richer education. It also provides them with the tools to know what to do, when they don’t know what to do.
Effective study techniques are taught to ensure students are well prepared to achieve their study goals both at school and after they graduate.
Informed by research of effective teaching and learning practices (Marzano and Bloom) and growth mindset (Dweck), the Junior School courses focus on developing higher-order thinking skills, with a focus on analyzing, evaluating and justifying. Students in Year 7 and 8 undertake a broad curriculum by studying all eight Key Learning Areas (KLAs) / Core Subjects. This introduces them to core and elective subjects which they can choose in Years 9 and 10.
In Year 9 students continue studying core subjects along with two elective subjects. Whilst the core subjects provide students with a broad educational base, the electives allow students the freedom of selecting subjects they are interested in. Elective subjects are studied for two years, continuing into Year 10.
