Year 7 and 8 students are divided into small tutor groups with a teacher in charge. In addition, they are taught by specialist teachers for all subjects moving from class to class.
Exposure to a variety of teachers at this age helps ease the transition to secondary schooling and prepares students for different teaching styles. Subjects taught include English, mathematics, social science, science, physical education, music, technology, Christian education and art. French, English and Spanish are offered as semester courses and whole year courses.
Enhanced student learning occurs within the classroom programme as well as extension programmes such as Mathex for specific students. All students participate in the STEAM programme where the focus is on problem solving, collaboration and critical thinking. The focus for the Epro8 challenge includes engineering to art, electronics to mathematics and problem solving.
Students who may need some extra support are also catered for with a personalised programme.
