There is a highly structured academic programme in the Middle School. All subjects adhere to the New Zealand Curriculum and the syllabus from Junior Cambridge to prepare students for their life in the Secondary School.
Our academic expectations and results are high. The assessments we use are comprehensive with the key focus around mid-year and end-of-year examinations. We believe this provides a structure of learning that suits boys.
Our timetable follows a five day programme with seven periods per day. 70% of subjects are taught by the House Class teacher with specialist secondary teachers taking subjects such as Science, Music, Technology, Art and Languages. This integration with the Senior School in Year 7 and 8 contributes to the effective transitioning into the Senior School which begins in Year 9.
