Information About School

 

Middle School serves the needs of children between the ages of 7 and 11 before they enter Senior School for the final phase of their compulsory education.

Here, the children are prepared for the different subjects that they will take up at Senior School level. They are given subject teachers for certain areas so that they  will start to learn to adapt to different subject areas, and to different individual teachers.

The teaching in Middle School is topic-based, as required by the National Minimum Curriculum. Subject teachers find proper links so that subjects are inter-connected, and learning is more logical and interesting to the children.

Our teachers, who are all highly qualified, hold regular weekly meetings in order to plan their teaching with colleagues, and are obliged to attend Professional Development days where teaching methods are discussed and the latest educational developments are implemented, where appropriate.

Middle School boasts of a number of special rooms for subject teaching.  These include a well-equipped Library, a room for Drama and Music, an Art room, a PSCD room, a Mini Gym for indoor PE and a fully-equipped ICT Lab..

Play areas are allocated according to year groups so that, as much as possible, each year group is kept to its own age range. The children are encouraged to join in the lunch break activities  provided by the school, so that their breaks are a source of enjoyment and learning.
