Middle Years

Middle Years students identify their interests and talents through a range of subjects and disciplines in preparation for Senior School. We recognise the importance of deep and applied knowledge, as well as providing opportunities for students to develop the softer skills such as personal and time management, goal setting, critical thinking and collaboration.

Homeroom teachers mentor students spiritually with daily devotions, encouraging them to seek God and know Him personally.
