Primary School

The Middle Years are a challenging time of transition for learners as they move from childhood to adolescence. This is a crucial period of personal, social, physical and intellectual growth, of uncertainty and questioning.

Through the Middle Years Programme, designed for students aged 11 to 16, teachers extend the academic teaching by helping students develop critical thinking, solve ‘real-life’ problems, develop knowledge of local and global issues, communicate ideas, engage in public debate and express creativity through action. Through this process, students develop a certain independence and maturity, learn to manage time and multiple expectations and become aware and confident of their academic and personal development.
